Gidget's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Gidget's Story...
Gidget is a social butterfly. She gets along well with everyone and loves attention. She even likes to give horses a kiss and thinks the barn cats are good friends. She is intelligent and easy to train. She would be an excellent running partner. She is approximately a year old and weighs 50 lbs.


Here is what her foster family had to say:


Gidget has a great temperament and gets along with all dogs and people. She is eager to please and loves attention. She likes to be wherever her people are however she can often be found in the bathroom staring at herself. She will need some further obedience training but would excel at is as she is very intelligent and highly motivated to please. When she first came into our care she was afraid of pretty much everything. We had to teach her about stairs, and things like the tv freaked her out. She has since settled in well.


She is still very puppy-ish in her ways and enjoys playing with other dogs. She has met cats at the barn and seems to just treat them like a small dog. She treats small dogs much differently than large breeds. She is very gentle and plays totally different with them. She gets along with my dogs and any others that she has met outside of the house.


Gidget is fully house trained however she is crated when we are not at home. She is fine in the crate and treats it like her home. She tend to be a bit of a “magpie” in that she collects things around the house when left alone uncrated. Mostly she just piles everything on the couch. She has spent 7 hours in the crate while I was a work and she was fine just needed a good run and lots of loving when I returned home. She sleeps with me at night and lies quietly on the bed until it is time to get up.


She is a grazer which does not work at this house! She likes to eat when the other dogs are eating but she is very slow. We have to guard her against the other two eating her food. She likes dog biscuits!!! She will bark at the newspaper carrier or at something that startles her, but compared to my dogs, she is quiet.


Gidget is a quick learner and would do great at obedience classes. She is learning not to counter surf (almost there) Sit, lay down, off are all works in progress and getting better every day. She knows her name and will come when called. She still pulls on the leash but is getting better all the time. She rides very well in the car. She knows she has to stay in the back and will lay down once you get going.


Gidget needs to be with people that are active and would do best in a house with a yard. I think she would be great with other pets but also OK on her own as long as she had interaction with other animals such as the dog park. We have had her around horses and she loves them. She stands on her back legs and gives them all a kiss. Licking is one of her favourite things to do. If you don’t like dog spit, then this is not the dog for you! I would love to see this dog after obedience training because I think she would be excellent at it and very devoted to her owner. Wish I had the time and space to keep her!!!!!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gidget, a Hamilton Catahoula Leopard Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Catahoula Leopard Dog for sale in Hamilton, or seeking a Catahoula Leopard Dog dog from a breeder in Hamilton.

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