Meet RENZO! This heart-throb is a 1 - 1-1/2 year old, male, 51 lb, Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog / Boxer mix. He is SO much fun and a big lover! Renzo came to us when his owners moved all the way up from Shreveport, LA. They admitted that they got him as a puppy for their 4 kids, but the kids weren't interested in him, so he just lived outside in their small backyard 24/7. Although his life up to now has been sad, he is a great dog and LOVES people!! He longs for attention and just wants to please! Renzo is ultimately an adult-sized puppy, so because he acts very much like a big puppy and has had no boundaries, we wanted to set him up for success and enrolled him in a Board & Train program. Renzo is a very active boy and will need an active home to give him plenty of exercise. He would be a great running companion! He is super smart and a fast learner. He is very friendly, LOVES to snuggle, loves belly rubs, and wants to be near his family. Renzo is sensitive, so he needs a gentle yet firm hand (his behaviorist believes he may have been hit...!). He has a wonderful exuberance for life! We are slowly introducing him to new dogs. So far, he does have a friend in a Pomeranian / Chihuahua mix with whom he would go on walks. If you are a happy-go-lucky, active person with a positive outlook on life, Renzois your mirror match!

***TRAINING IS MANDATORY FOR ALL LLR ADOPTABLES!!

NOTE: We do NOT adopt out of state. Our range is no further than 50 miles from Chicago. This is because we PERSONALLY do home visits for every single dog / puppy. Exceptions ONLY in certain cases where a sweetie has issues (medical / behavioral / special needs) and we have had him / her for a longer time. We will then travel to the Moon for a Forever Family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Renzo, a Chicago Catahoula Leopard Dog/Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Catahoula Leopard Dog/Boxer for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Catahoula Leopard Dog/Boxer dog from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Chicago breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Catahoula Leopard Dog/Boxer breeders who help with Catahoula Leopard Dog/Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
