My story

This chocolate boy is part athlete, part lover! You will always find DEWEY close by our staff & volunteers, whether it be for play time in our doggie exercise yard or for some special lovin'. He is still a puppy at 18 months old, and being a Catahoula Leopard Dog/Hound mix, Dewey is very active. So, a home with a fenced backyard is a must for this handsome fella. He is still learning to be confident while going for a walk, so we highly recommend harness training. Dewey was surrendered by his owners due to "a lifestyle change" and through no fault of his own. We have learned that while home alone, kenneling will ease his separation anxiety. He also loves toys, especially squeaky toys, ropes toys, and Kong brand products for active chewers. Dewey would be an excellent companion for a single person/couple or active retirees seeking a loving, loyal friend. Dewey is fearful of other dogs, so potential adopters must bring their dog(s) along for the meet-n-greet to ensure compatibility. *Dewey's adoption fee is $75, which includes worming, neutering, vaccines, microchip, and a free vet check with one of our participating veterinarians. Dewey tested heartworm positive, but he is on a monthly heartworm preventative and doing great. An approved adoption application always applies!
