My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Breed: Catahoula Leopard Mix
Age: 9 months (March 1st)
Weight: 50 lbs
Medical: Up to date on Vaccinations, microchipped, Neutered
Cat Friendly: Yes
Dog Friendly: Yes
Kid Friendly: Yes
House Trained: In training (goes outdoors and indoors on pee pads)
Crate Trained: Yes, In an open playpen style crate; No to a closed crate
Location: New Hampshire

Brownie was a stray puppy that is approximately 26 weeks old and weighs approximately 35 pounds and is very lovable, playful and loyal. He continues to use the potty outside, with consistency. Pee pads are still kept in the home in case of “accidents” as he is still in training.

He is extremely playful with the other dogs and cats in the home. He would do best without senior animals as he is extremely playful and as for cats when they tell him they don’t want to play – he listens! But even though he can play a little rough at times, when redirected, he’s aware and listens.

He loves going for car rides and knows when anyone is leaving, he will usually be the first waiting at the door! He does well on car rides. Everyone that sees him falls in love with him. He will make a great companion, but needs exercise and daily attention, as well as consistency and redirection, when necessary.

Brownie loves to play in the yard and when he is ready to come in is one of the few times that he will bark. He will sometimes bark when he senses something or sees the neighbors that are unfamiliar to him. So far, he lets mostly everyone give him pets and love and he sure does give lots of kisses.

He knows the command “sit” and knows how to walk on a leash.
He would definitely make a great jogging partner.
He loves puppuccinos and playing in the water, swimming pool and splashing in puddles. He even jumps in the bathtub! He’s a very smart, loyal puppy and is very observant. He gives constant eye contact and lots of kisses.

He can be food aggressive at feeding time, so if it is a muti-dog home, to avoid him guarding all the dog bowls he is fed separately every day in the open style crate. He already knows to go inside and wait for his food bowl. He stays inside the crate until all the other dogs have finished eating or the food is picked up.

If you are interested in adopting Brownie, click at the link below:
Once your application has been received and reviewed, you will be contacted via email or phone by one of our volunteers. After your application is approved, the foster parent for the dog you have selected will contact you to answer any questions you may have and determine if that dog is a good match for your family.

If you have no particular dog in mind, we will be happy to keep your application on file and notify you if the right dog should come into rescue. Catahoula Rescue of New England is an all-volunteer group. Dogs in our program are fostered by volunteers. The foster homes care for our dogs as if they were their own. All dogs have received vaccinations appropriate to age and are spayed or neutered.

Brownie’s adoption donation is $450 which includes Rabies, DHLPP, Bordetella, fecal test, heartworm test, is on preventative, microchip and neuter depending on age at time of adoption. We do not have a physical shelter; all of our dogs are fostered in individual foster homes across the New England and Canada.

Additional adoption info

We have a written application followed by a phone interview. If the applicant is approved past this point then we check 2 personal references as well as their vet reference. If they rent we speak with their landlord as well. If all is well at this point then we do a home check. The final step is a meet and greet where the adopter and the household, including dogs travel to meet the new adoptive dog. If all goes well they can adopt. There is an adoption contract and the adoption fee ranges between $200-400 depending on the fees that we put into the particular dog.

Go meet their pets

We support local "ma & pa" business before the big box chains since many of us come from some communities. We also attended fairs and "meet & greet" events.
