Rhett is an adult Catahoula mix who is very intelligent. He gets along well with people in small groups, but he becomes anxious when in a crowd. He is selective about what dogs he likes so he should meet any resident dogs in a prospective home before his adoption. Rhett knows several basic commands, such as “sit” and “no”, and he can easily learn others with consistency and beef jerky which is his favorite treat. Rhett especially loves the children that he has met in his foster home; however, young children are not recommended since he may knock them over in his enthusiasm to play. He is 90% housebroken and goes to the door when he wants to be let out. When outside, he loves to track animal scents, and he can easily jump over a 4-foot fence if there are enticing scents that he is compelled to follow . Therefore, a 6-foot privacy fence is recommended. Rhett needs plenty of physical and mental stimulation to keep him out of trouble. If allowed to become bored. Rhett seeks his own entertainment with such things as toilet bowl brushes, children’s toys, shoes, blankets, pencils, and basically anything he shouldn’t have.
The suggested adoption donation for Rhett is $350, which is TAX DEDUCTIBLE, and goes toward providing supportive services to animals in the home, as well as the high cost of vetting our dogs in rescue. If you would like to welcome Rhett into your home, please begin by submitting our Adoption Application. The adoptions for all of our dogs will take place in the Omaha, NE area and must be done by the adoptive family in person. We do not ship or deliver the dogs.
