Molly's Story...
My name is Molly. I am a young dog, 9 months as of march 2013. Catahoula leopard /aussie mix is what I am. 25 lbs. or so. My eyes are white on bottom and brown on top. I have learned a little in my short life. Did you know I was born in an abandoned culvert in the spring and lived off the land with my mother and brother. There was a lady who was nice enough to feed us some. My brother and I were very scared of her. When cold weather moved in Barkin Dogs Rescue came to our rescue. At that time, we didn’t think rescue was a good idea but they were very resourceful (that means smarter than me). I was thrust into a whole new scary world. My mom wasn’t as worried as I was and before long she found a new home and family. I am now living with a foster family. They understand what I am going through. At first, I was really, really scared. I couldn’t hardly look at them and tried to make myself very small. But you know what, I have my own nice warm bed and kennel. I have good food and plenty of water and chew bones and toys. I am learning about living with people and how noisy it can be at times to be around children. The other dogs here don’t bother about any of that stuff. That really helps me a lot. It makes me curious about things, even though I’m still very unsure. I have learned about housetraining. I get a “Gold Star” in that area. I am learning how to live with a pack of dogs, some are friendly to me and some are not. I can come with a pretty high energy, you know, I am just a pup with a tendency to resource from other dogs. I will do really well with another dog that is very tolerant and will put me in my place when they’ve had enough of my rough puppy play. When I play with my foster mom, I’m not rough like that. We like to play ball and just a little tug with my stuffed animals. She doesn’t want me to learn to bite hard. Learning commands is fun if there is a treat involved. I know “come, sit, down, eat, leave it, outside, off (take leash off), kennel (go to bed), working on shake” and I have high hopes to learn a lot more when I get more settled. The leash thing was really hard for me, but now I go on just like the big dogs. Sometimes I pull to much but I’m small and I’m working on it. My kennel is a good place for me to relax. I don’t mind it at all and will sleep all night. I can stay put behind a baby gate without protesting too much. For now, I need a quieter home. And a tolerant dog would be great. A patient home, someone who has had experience with unsure dogs would be best for me. I haven’t lived indoors very long or been in contact with people very long. I do like to be massaged and once I can trust you, I turn into a playful puppy, with a waggly tail. If you’d like to talk more you can contact my foster mom Cindy at (816)532-3198. Or if you cant get Cindy then email (913) 909-6130

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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