Rooty's Story...
This pet is in a foster home in San Antonio, TX and can fly to an approved adopter in the US and Canada. The fee is $550 and that covers the $125 tax deductible adoption fee, flight, crate, vetting and health certificate.

Hello dog lovers, my name is Rooty, yes like root beer:) As you can see from the photos I am a brindle gal, very petite I just 30 pounds and I am likely a Catahoula and terrier blend. I ended up at the city shelter on death row where I was very shy and scared but thankfully the staff did not give up on me until they found CARE rescue to help save my life. Now I am in a wonderful foster home where I have two little boys to play with and two dogs who have shown me how to be a family pet. I am still shy at first but it's not out of fear anymore it's just because I'm like silly putty. I am smart and aim to please but will need a patient family who will continue to socialize me and take me places introduced me to lots of people and other dogs so I can be the confident the puppy I meant to be. I am housebroken and crate trained and am learning to walk on a leash. If you're looking for a girl like me, I promise to be a loving and devoted companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rooty, a Hartford Catahoula Leopard Dog/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Catahoula Leopard Dog/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Hartford, or seeking a Catahoula Leopard Dog/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in Hartford.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hartford 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 Hartford 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/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Catahoula Leopard Dog/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue.
