Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog For Adoption Near Seattle

REQUEST TO MEET LUNK HERE!
Click Here!
There is a $75 adoption/rehoming fee. All supplies will be included.

I am a Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog (say that 5 times fast!). I am very sweet, pretty silly, and more than a little bit complicated (which is very typical for my breed). I am just 6 years old, and very healthy. I have been neutered, microchipped, fully vaccinated and crate trained. I am perfectly house broken, and am currently undergoing obedience training.

I was brought to the Pacific Northwest from a high kill shelter in Los Angeles. The shelter said that I had been neglected by my original owners, who turned me in after 6 years for being too rambunctious. I was neutered and microchipped from the humane society in Los Angeles before my trip to the Pacific Northwest.

It is apparent that I did not receive the firm and consistent behavior modification that is so important for my breed. My current owners have done their very best to help me reach my potential as an obedient, well behaved, and confident dog. I am actively in training, and though I have come a very long way I will need continued consistent training to reach my full potential. My training class will follow me within Washington and Oregon state limits. I love agility training and having tasks.

Though I would like to, I am not quite ready to make my own decisions. Unfortunately, where we live is not an ideal environment for me. We are in the city, and with the hustle and bustle of traffic, people coming and going, and other dogs all around me, I tend to become anxious. I feel the need to be protective of my owners and their home.

My ideal situation would be with very experienced dog owners who understand my breed and who can be patient, consistent, and very firm with me. I would be so much better off in a rural home, where I am not constantly being overstimulated by all the city noises and activity. I need owners who are home a good part of the time, and who can give me a job to do. Helping with chores and , having a purpose will go a long way towards helping me feel settled and calm.

I am usually good with other dogs, so I need to be placed in home without cats or other small animals. I am not a good choice for families with small children, but would be OK with kids older than 12.

I am good with other medium to large dogs, as long as I am introduced properly. I need to be placed in a home with a friend that I can play with or an only pet home. I haven’t had experience with children so would require special precautions to be introduced.

Introductions to other pets and children require controlled environments as I can become excited and that can be misconstrued as aggression.

Please offer me the safe, happy and quiet country home I need and deserve.

Love and Licks,

Lunk

About Seattle Find My Pet A Home

About Our Rescue Group...

In many locations throughout the USA and Canada, shelters are rescues are filled to capacity, leaving pet owners who can no longer care for their pet with nowhere to turn. Many pets are needlessly being euthanized.

Being placed in a shelter is a very stressful experience for all pets - and their owners. We offer a very good alternative, allowing pets to stay in the loving care of their owners while a new home is located for them.

We have helped many pet owners in need to place their pet in a home where they have great peace of mind in knowing that their pet is being cherished, well cared for and kept safe, happy and healthy.

Come Meet Our Pets...

In most instances, our pets stay with their owners until a new home can be located. There are some situations which require a more urgent placement, and in these instances, we look for loving foster homes to care for these pets until a permanent home can be located.

Pets available for adoption can be viewed on our website at http://findmypetahome.com

Our Adoption Process...

When a pet is placed with our organization, our staff create a very honest and compelling adoption story about the pet, using the information provided to us.

We then spread the word about this pet's need for a new home through a wide variety of online services, and through local outreach.

Interested parties are directed to fill out a formal request to meet a pet, providing in-depth information about themselves.

Before a potential adopter is introduced to a pet, we do careful reference screening and a criminal records check.

Should the pet's owner and the adoptive party agree to an adoption, a formal agreement is entered into, requiring the new owner to agree to keep in touch, ensure the pet's physical and emotional well-being, and provide a safe, happy and healthy home.

They are required to agree that they will not surrender the pet to a shelter or give away the pet - but rather they are to contact our organization so that we can find another suitable home, in the event that they are unable to fulfill their commitment.

The owners deliver the pet to the new owners, so that they can do a home inspection prior to leaving the pet in the new owner's care.

Our organization provides follow-up services, contacting the new owners after the first week, and then every 45 days for the first nine months post-adoption. This helps ensure the pet is being well cared for, and that the new owners have any support they need in adjusting to life with their new companion,
