Rescue Me ID: 17-06-08-00216Tigger (male)

Catahoula Mix    Age: Young Adult

    We've fallen hard for this guy, and we bet you will, too. Here's Tigger, a 3-4 year old recent transfer from Utah. And here's his story: Tigger was found near St George, stuck in a coyote trap -- the kind that gets tighter and tighter around the neck. He was emaciated and near death when another shelter was called out. Shelter workers had to cut the trap out of his neck, and they set about nursing him back to health. He has some scars, but he was neutered and healed when he was adopted out to a woman with children. He did very well with her kids, and the woman loved him. Unfortunately, after her life circumstances changed, she surrendered ... (Read More)him back to the shelter. Tigger's former guardian said that he would 'eat the walls' if left alone, so he may need some help with separation anxiety. We have not noticed a problem here, though. His guardian also said that he was good with little dogs but not big; however, the reports are confusing. The shelter took him to an adoption event, where he did great with other dogs, but apparently a shelter volunteer was out walking him one day when he 'viciously attacked a weiner dog.' We're told that the dog had a cow bell on and that the noise may have bothered him. Apparently, Tigger also jumped a 6 foot fence one day while a shelter worker was bathing Clark (large male), and the two dogs did not fight at all. We suspect that Tigger is selective and will need help with slow introductions. But here's what we know for sure: Tigger is a sweetheart. He is calm. He is mellow. He is friendly with everyone he meets, though he does seem a little shy and reserved at first. Tigger's ears are very yeasty, but he tolerates cleaning and treatment like a champ. He rides in a car well. He walks on a leash well. He is simply one of the most well-behaved dogs around this place. And we love him. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Catahoula in Idaho
    Catahoula Dogs can make good pets in Idaho if they match your IifestyIe. The Catahoula, or Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog, is an intelligent, loyal, and territorial breed. Catahoulas are affectionate with their own families but intolerant of strangers. Catahoulas need a lot of time and attention from their owners and are best matched with people who have experience training intelligent dogs. A Catahoula that is left alone and ignored may become aggressive or destructive. Early socialization is imperative, especially with children. Catahoulas are very physical and need a lot of exercise. Some can adapt to apartment life while others cannot; the safest bet is a home with a large fenced yard or open land.
