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 07-24-21: There are always so many heartbreaking stories to tell from being in a dog rescue group, but once in a great while we get to tell a “happy tail” about adorable puppies that were NOT abandoned, NOT tossed out of a car on a remote backroad, and NOT neglected and forgotten. These puppies are happy, healthy, and ready to start a journey to find their forever homes up north!’
REESE * SPECKLES * TANK
Meet Speckles. She and her 6 siblings were born on 1/28/21 to a wonderful mom who had spent most of her young life as a stray. She was taken in by a wonderful family who gave her plenty of food, a warm bed, and lots of love. Unfortunately, they assumed she was spayed, and several years later, boy, did she surprise them! Luckily this family is doing the right thing and getting momma spayed right away, as well as working with us to get these pups into great homes.
ALL LITTER PUPS AND MOMMA
Speckles is a beautiful 20 lb. Catahoula Cur mix. She is a plump little thing, and the only one in the whole litter that was blessed with all the gorgeous markings and rich colors on her coat. Speckles is the typical “baby” of the litter. She craves the most love and attention. She is a bit shy, but if given lots of loving attention, she warms right up to you and is quite the sweetheart.
LITTER MATE TODD
When considering adding a new member to the family it is important to research breeds so that everyone, including the new pup, is comfortable and happy. The Catahoula Cur is a loyal, independent, and watchful breed. They are a medium-large, short-coated dog, known for its many varied coat and eye colors and patterns. Catahoulas are the only breed of dog to have historically originated in the state of Louisiana. The breed requires firm guidance and early socialization, as they can be independent, territorial, and protective.
LITTER MATE REESE
For the same reasons, they do not allow mistreatment and will assert themselves in self-defense. Once they know their place in the family unit, they are affectionate, loyal, and gentle. Also called the Catahoula Hog Dog, they are used as stock dogs, bay dogs, tree dogs, watchdogs, guard dogs, and of course as loyal companions.
Speckles is a sweet, little girl. She’s a baby, so she will obviously get along with anyone. Children will love to run and play with her, but we always strongly suggest that no dog, young or old, should ever be left unsupervised with children until everyone is very comfortable in all situations. If you think Speckles would be a good fit for your family, she will absolutely bring you years of love, joy, and companionship, and lots of fun, too!
