Joplin, MO, 64801
Pet name:
Cela 120894
Catahoula Leopard Dog
Cela is a 1 - 2 yr old female Catahoula mix. She has a medium energy level, so she will need a moderate amount of daily activity. She can be a little shy at first, but warms up quickly to new people. She is loose and wiggly when greeting, and comes when called for snuggles. Cela walks well on a leash with no pulling. She is food motivated; and knows the commands sit, down, and rollover. She can be apprehensive of new dogs, but mixes well in a kennel. We will require a meet-and-greet with a potential adopters dogs to ensure that they are compatible before the adoption process can be completed. She is afraid of cats in the shelter environment. Dogs are generally tested with dogs of their own size; and dog meets with the resident dogs are always encouraged. Our cat test should be used as a general-purpose screening only to rule out overt aggression; we always recommend caution when introducing dogs to cats in the home. Recommendation on suitability of placement with children by their ages is based on behavioral observations including energy level and response to body handling. We never recommend leaving young children unsupervised with dogs, and we cannot guarantee the behavior of dogs with children, other pets, or cats. Behavior evaluations should be considered as a snapshot of the behavior of the dog at this point in time; JHS believes all dog families need to be prepared to invest time and energy into training as well as provide common sense management of their new dog. We always encourage family to do some research on the breeds or mixes of breeds prior to adoption as many can have some unique characteristics that may or may not fit into their families. Always remember that the majority of dogs at our shelter have been exposed to or may have kennel cough. Kennel cough is contagious to other dogs, please talk to your vet if you have any questions about kennel cough prior to adoption. Please ask your adoption counselor at time of adoption if you have any unanswered questions regarding illnesses and treatments of the pet that you are adopting.
