Let me introduce myself – my name is Whistler, and I’m a Catahoula boy, 55 lb. and about a year old.  I was miserably ill, infected all over my body, and starving when Foster Mom found me in Shelby Forest.  All my ribs showed, and every time I took a breath, I whistled!  (That’s how I got my name.)  Now I’m a healthy, happy representative of the State of Louisiana!  I’m on slow heartworm treatment, and my skin has healed, showing off my distinctive red/tan merle and white pattern.  My eyes are arresting – one brown and one blue. 

Once she took me home, Foster Mom realized that I must have been abandoned by my family – I can walk on a leash, I’m crate trained, and I’ve never, ever had an accident in the house.  I’m friendly without being all over you – I like kids, and I do fine with other dogs as long as they are not aggressive toward me.  I’m kinda scared of cats!  I once chased a feral cat, and she taught me a sharp lesson – and I’m super-smart and a fast learner!

Like others of my breed, I’m extremely active and need plenty of room to run and play.  I just love balls and toys that will fit in my mouth!  My favorite game is “I keep the ball” – I will let go, but ONLY if you promise to throw it for me so I can bring it back!  (I told you I’m smart!)

I’m the perfect watch dog, because I’m territorial and super-protective of my family – to keep you safe, I’ll circle around you several times whenever I sense danger near. 

Are you looking for a smart, loyal youngster to guard your country home and share an active outdoor lifestyle?  You can’t find a better companion than me!

Thank you for considering adopting a new family member. Most of our adoptable dogs live inside foster homes.  Fostering teaches house manners, helps to potty/crate train and accustoms the dogs become familiar with the sights, sounds of living in a home environment.

About Dogs 2nd Chance - Munford

About Our Rescue Group...

Dogs 2nd Chance is a 501[c]3 non-profit dog foster group that was founded in the fall of 2007. We are a group of VOLUNTEERS that saw the need to help medium and large mixed breed dogs find permanent loving homes. We have evolved to help any size dogs. We are NOT a shelter. We receive no government funding and depend on our minimal adoption fees, donations and our own bank accounts.

All of our dogs are fostered in our homes and become a temporary active member of our family. Fostering helps to socialize the dogs, helping them adjust to life in a family setting. The majority of our dogs were abandoned, dumped or found running stray. We attempt to reunite lost dogs with their owners by placing ads in local newspapers and online classified ads. Additionally, we rescue dogs from high kill shelters as space allows. We are caring for the castaways by saving one dog at a time.
