Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young and their bodies are not fully developed. Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first
ADOPTED ON 08-12-21: All too often there is a lonely pup chained up in the backyard, looking longingly towards the house where her people live, probably wishing she could be there too, where she would be loved and treated like a member of the family. Imagine spending long days with little to no attention, except for the random bowl of food being delivered, tied up so that even the small space you occupy cannot be changed? It happens over and over again. Worse yet, is having a litter of puppies while chained up in that lonely yard because no one took the time to spay their “pet”. Our mission is to make sure that ALL dogs have a loving home, one precious pup at a time.
Biscuit is one of those precious pups. She is a very pretty GS Cur mix, about a year and a half old, who was kept tied out, and just delivered a beautiful litter of puppies despite the lack of medical care she received. Luckily, our rescue angels down south stepped in to rescue them all, and they are all being well-taken care of before they begin their journey towards forever homes.
When considering a new member to join your family, it is important to do some research to choose the right breed so everyone, including the new pup, is happy. The Catahoula Cur is a very popular breed in the South. They are loyal, independent, and watchful. The Catahoula is a multi-purpose working dog that is well-muscled and powerful, but with a sense of agility and endurance. They are serious while working and playful at home. They are known to be very protective, and once they know their place in the family unit, they are affectionate, loyal, and gentle.
Biscuit already has many fans. Everyone at the veterinarian’s office is in love with her, claiming she is the sweetest dog ever. She has been spayed, and is beginning her treatment for heartworm shortly. Biscuit has a wonderful temperament, and, considering her age and breed, would do very well in an active home. She has met children and behaved just fine, but we always strongly recommend that dogs and children never be left unsupervised until a strong comfort level is established. Biscuit was that lonely pup chained in the yard, but she has a wonderful future ahead of her, and will be a great addition to a loving home, bringing many years of love to her new family.
