Terra is not at the Rescue or affiliated with Paws Crossed, we are just posting as a courtesy for someone that is looking to re-home her. To find out more information and/or to meet her you can contact Justin at: 646.438.1632 or 

Terra is a beautiful two year old mix. She is sweet, smart, curious, friendly, loves to play and be involved with her people. She has great recall, basic / advanced obedience, house manners and leash manners. She is 65 lbs and up to date on all vaccines. She was initially rescued from Virginia, and is currently located in Manhattan. I have had her for one year, and have come to realize that I cant give her what she needs here (exercise, adventure, structure, a pack, etc). Ideal candidate: patient dog owner experienced with high energy, working breeds. Active household (hiking, adventure, etc) with a large yard and one or more other well-mannered dogs for her to play with and learn from. Terra has a lot of energy and some anxiety in new situations. I suspect these will both lessen with access to a yard and regular exercise, but she will need some attention when settling in. She needs a home that can match her vigor and zest for life, and in exchange she will repay you with unbreakable loyalty, affection, companionship and entertainment. I have had a few people tell me that she would be a good candidate for agility training, if thats something youre interested in. She is very smart, very athletic and loves to please. She loves dogs and is naturally gentle with smaller / older dogs, but gets very excited when meeting other large, high energy dogs for the first time. She loves to chase, be chased and wrestle. Sometimes she needs to be told to chill out when shes very stimulated around these types of dogs. She has gotten 10x better at this during the time Ive had her, but she is still learning. If you are interested in adopting Terra, please send a note describing your household / lifestyle, how her needs would be met and why you think she would be a good fit for you. I am happy to answer any questions and provide more photos / video (I have no shortage of pics!). Thank you for reading and looking forward to hearing from you.

Walk-ins are welcome! Stop by during our open hours to meet our available dogs!!

Before you can adopt, please complete an adoption questionnaire on our website at If you have any questions, please email us at for more information. Please understand that we cannot hold any pets. All adoptions are done on a first come, first adopt basis for pre-approved applicants. 

The Shelter software system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of our dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We encourage you to select your new companion by considering each dogs individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on a breed label that is only a guess.
