Colt & Wesson's Info...

Colt & Wesson's Story...
Colt (little guy --2yrs old) was found chained and abandoned, in the back yard of what he knew as home. Fortunately, a man who was working in the area discovered him. He waited a week, thinking surely someone was coming back for him. At the end of that week, he realized no one was coming back and brought him to CARA.
Colt had a buddy that was with him in that backyard. While Colt was chained, Wesson(bigger boy- 1yr catahoula mix) was a young puppy who had spent that entire time right there beside his buddy, with no chain to keep him there. He chose to stay right there, next to Colt, even to the point that he had become severely emaciated. He could have left, gone in search of food, but he had refused to leave his chained friend. Wesson was in such bad shape when we got him. The first few days were touch and go, as we weren't sure that he could make the comeback. Colt stood watch over his younger buddy until he did make that comeback.

These boys are bonded to each other, the best of friends, as is evident. That being said, we certainly do not want to cost either of them a home by saying that they must be adopted together. That's a dream that we have that they could remain together. We know it's a big one, but we dream big. Especially when we see friends that have shown this kind of loyalty and continue to show the incredible love they have for one another.

Both of these boys are incredibly sweet, loving boys. They love everyone they meet. Their gratitude runs deep. Their dispositions and temperament are everything one could hope for in a pup. Come meet them today at the shelter.

Breed identification by visual means is unreliable for most dogs. We are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. Each dog at CARA is an individual and we do our best to describe each animal based on personality, not by breed label.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Colt & Wesson, a Jackson Catahoula Leopard Dog/Chihuahua puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Catahoula Leopard Dog/Chihuahua for sale in Jackson, or seeking a Catahoula Leopard Dog/Chihuahua puppy from a breeder in Jackson.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Jackson 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 Jackson 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/Chihuahua breeders who help with Catahoula Leopard Dog/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Jackson paves the way for another one to be saved.
