Rescue Me ID: 15-10-03-00057Kody (male)

Catahoula Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    When you are a handsome boy, you just can't help but smile from floppy ear to floppy ear. Unless you don't have them, then I suppose cheek to cheek will suffice. My name is Kody and I am approximately 1.5 years old. I am a 45lb Catahoula/Shepherd mix and could not be any sweeter if I tried. If you look at my photos you will see I have some of the really neat leopard spots on my coat that make me stand out in a crowd. A very kind lady found me as a stray and looked and looked to see if anyone claimed me as a missing part of their family, but sadly no one did. I am very affectionate though so I think I must have had a family at some point. ... (Read More)When no one came forward, she asked FCHS if they would help me find a home and that is when I got to meet my foster mommy. It was love at first sight. I don't like to be outside in the yard alone, and will sit by the back door until someone lets me in so I know I could do well in any home. Even an apartment would be sufficient for me as long as we work on my leash walking. I am also house trained (though I did try to mark a blanket every other boy dog in the house tries to claim) and will sleep quietly in my crate at night or if you have to be away. Just make sure that you give me plenty of chew toys and maybe put some food in there so that I will actually want to go in. If it is boring then to be honest I may put the brakes on until you make it fun for me. I do great with the other dogs in my foster home, and they vary in ages from 8 months all the way to 10 years. Having a dog friend around is nice, but I would be quite content calling you my best companion if I needed to be an only dog. I could enjoy going for hikes with you if you teach me some leash manners. I walk great on it as long as you are going where I want to or as long as nothing spooks me. However, I will occasionally dig in a decide I don't want to go where I am being led but I am learning quickly and making daily improvements. I could also tolerate a feline companion since I show no interest in them at all. I live with two of them and one is sure that he is a dog and is fearless. He is a funny thing, but I still don't really see what is so interesting about them. I also like little kids. There are three here that are under 4 and they are strange little things too but I actually do like them. I am usually a little timid with new people but for some reason they do not bother me one bit. And while I may be timid at first, I quickly open up and then the love just pours out of me by the bucket-full. I have already been neutered, microchipped, and brought up to date on my vaccinations. I am looking for that special family who will keep me up to date on my heartworm and flea/tick prevention like FCHS has done and give me that forever home that is the desire of every dog's loyal heart. My adoption fee is $200 and if you have any additional questions about me you are welcome to email my foster mom, Jessica, at She is always happy to talk about my sweet self. If you think that your home is suited to be my forever home, you can fill out an adoption application at under the Adoptable Dogs tab. Be sure to put my name at the top. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Catahoula in North Carolina
    Catahoula Dogs can make good pets in North Carolina 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 North Carolina Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Catahoulas only need to be bathed about twice a year. Vikings would have brought Catahoulas' ancestors to the New World hundreds of years before the Spanish arrived. Teams of Catahoulas were once used to control feral pigs.
