Cleo's Info...

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

Cleo's Story...
Cleo and her sister Chloe were surrendered to the shelter by someone who had too many dogs to care for; their former owner says they are a Catahoula/Dachshund mix, but we think there are probably several other mystery breeds tossed in there, making them lovely
"leMutte" pups. They were born March 10, 2012. Cleo has longer legs than Chloe, and we are guessing she will end up between 45-60 pounds full-grown, but eventual sizes of random mixed-breed pups are based on often wildly inaccurate guesses! She could stop at 40 pounds, or she could keep going to 75 pounds - we look forward to hearing about Cleo's adult size from her new owner!

Cleo is a sweet and affectionate girl, who is very toy-oriented! These girls are not yet housetrained, but are very smart and we think an owner who can dedicate themselves to intensive potty training for the first week will be able to get them housetrained quickly.

We recommend these sisters NOT be adopted together; each will get a better chance to blossom in a home without her sister always being a rival for training and attention. Cleo should do fine with other, non-related dogs, and is young enough to learn all about cats safely, too. These gals' prior home had them around cats and children, plus horses and cows, and they did fine in the short time they were there.

Puppies require a lot of human interaction, and all puppies will benefit from obedience training and full immersion in their human household. These pups' ideal homes will have someone who can exercise them with a couple of energetic walks each day, plus commitment to training them how to be the best dogs they can be. They hope to have very few hours per day when they will be without the companionship of a human or other pet. They will reward their forever owners with boundless love and loyalty! We start all puppies on their vaccinations as soon as they arrive at the shelter (Cleo and Chloe will have had 1 or 2 vaccinations before they go home); most will require additional boosters in the first couple of months after arriving in their new homes, and rabies vaccination between 4-6 months of age.

In the video, Cleo is the taller pup with purple collar, and Chloe is the shorter pup with pink collar.

Pups this young come with a 3-day money-back trial adoption period.

Spay/neuter, worming, microchip and all age-appropriate shots are always completed before placement, and are included in the adoption fee (suggested minimum $95; more gratefully accepted!)

Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your payment to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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