    Meet Maddox! Catahoula Leopard Dog Mix 35-40 Pounds Maddox is a beautiful, energetic and playful puppy. He has an adorable face that calls for attention from kids and adults alike. He knows how to sit and comes when you call him. He takes good walks with a harness and likes to stay by your side. He is a herding dog breed, so will need to be exercised and given a job to keep him happy. He is crate trained and will sleep through the night without any accidents. He has completed his potty training and knows how to let you know it's time to go out. He is fairly high energy and would love a family that is active and willing to take him along ... (Read More)on adventures. Maddox is currently in a foster home with both older and younger children and gets along with everyone. He also has 2 other dogs with him in the home and loves to wrestle and play, he will also step away and lie down when he is done, content to watch the other 2 play. Maddox does like to chew, so it's important to keep various chew toys such as antlers or hoofs available for his entertainment. He would also like a Kong ball filled with peanut butter and frozen...this keeps him busy for hours! He loves his toys and will grab toys from the bin on his own and knows how to entertain himself. When he gets excited and starts running, his growing body wiggles and it almost looks like he's running sideways! When he is done playing, he will find a spot on the floor next to your feet or next to a comfy chair and plop down for a nap. Once asleep, he is down for the count! If you are looking for a loyal boy that is willing to take on life's adventures with you...Maddox would love to meet you!

Rescue Me ID: 17-10-09-00129Leroy (male)

Catahoula    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    Leroy is a very high energy dog ready for someone who can give him a lot of attention. Someone who can go for a lot of walks/runs with him or has a fenced in area for him would be best. He lives with smaller dogs and has always been great with them. We have 2 kids and he has been good with them. He is currently on a mild anti anxiety medication but maybe with the right amount of excercise and attention would not need to be on it any longer. He has been attacked by 2 different pitbulls so he is not a fan of any stocky dog that resembles a pitbull, boxer, etc. He is current on his rabies vaccine, but that is the only vaccine we give him. He ... (Read More)had a wellness check and blood test within the year and Dr.s say he is very healthy and looks great. He is crate trained/house trained. Leroy is a good dog and as hard as it would be to re-home him I believe he could have a better life with the right owner. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Catahoula in Illinois
    Catahoula Dogs can make good pets in Illinois 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.

lnteresting Catahoula Trivia Low-Cost Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Catahoulas only need to be bathed about twice a year. Catahoulas are probably descended from the Nordic Wolfhound. Teams of Catahoulas were once used to control feral pigs.
