Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Even looking at his picture with his new Rescue Me ID makes me cry. This is going to be a long post because his future family needs to know all of this about him. Osi has been a part of our family for 4 years now. He is such a sweet boy but early on after adopting him we realized he had some behavioral issues. We adopted Osi from the Tri Cities Animal Shelter in Dallas, TX when we were living there. We lived in Dallas for 2.5 years after that and have lived in Ohio for 1.5 years now. He is about 60 lbs now. We have taken him to 2 trainers and 2 behavioral vets and he has been diagnosed with general anxiety and fear aggression. He ... (Read More)started exhibiting these behaviors when he was about 6 months old. Up until then we brought him many places (restaurants, patios and friends homes) as well as had people over frequently. Then one day, while we were at a sports bar watching a football game he snapped at a waiter. The waiter went so far as to say Osi bit him but he did not puncture the man's leg - he just got close enough to basically graze the man with his paw or teeth. It happened so fast we were unsure of what happened. After this incident is when we called our second trainer (the first trainer was someone we had called when we first got him to teach a few obedience items). This second trainer focused on corrective training, so we used the word no and a prong collar as our methods of teaching him. This seemed to work for a little while but as time went on we started to think this was simply stopping the behavior and not addressing the real issue. Furthermore, we thought it was teaching him to stop giving us any leading signs such as staring, growling, barking and lead straight to lunging. While still using this form of training we would have people come over but they would be instructed to ignore him completely (no eye contact, no reaching to pet him, no calling his name - let him come to you). This worked pretty well and he would generally be okay but unfortunately we had another incident when we had a Christmas gathering at my husband's family's home. Osi is okay with everyone when they are doing one thing when he is introduced to the situation (ex. everyone is sitting in the living room, everyone is standing outside). But once someone does something different (ex. stand up from the couch, crouches down to tie a shoe) he becomes very frightened. This is what happened in our second situation. We were all sitting in the living room and a 10 year old boy got up from the couch and Osi bit at him. Again did not puncture the boy's leg but this time did leave a red scratch mark. After this incident we took him to a behavioral vet for some additional help. The behavioral vet at OSU decided we should go with a positive approach to training as opposed to the negative approach we had been using. So now, he is treated with high value foods every time he sees a person or something that puts him on edge. This seems to be working the best however he still slips into his old ways and he is still not a dog we feel safe keeping in our home when we have our baby (end of May). Over the past summer we took him to a cabin on the lake with my parents and he was for the most part fine (we had him on a leash and treated him heavily whenever we knew people were going to get up, sit down, etc) However, he still became afraid of my parents a couple times on the trip and barked at them. Osi is a very good dog. He's very loving with us and very smart. All throughout these years he has gone to daycare and been boarded and both places LOVED him. He is not food or toy aggressive and he doesn't tear up toys/pillows/anything he's not supposed to. He loves bones, kongs and squeaky tennis balls. He's very receptive to hearing his name and being told he is a good boy. He is also of course very food motivated and knows how to sit, shake, lie down, roll over and spin for a piece of string cheese, lick of cream cheese, peanut butter or Orijen/Fresh Pet nugget. He is currently on a daily dose of sertraline. We have tried to keep him in a crate while we are home and it seems to distress him more. Even though he is afraid of people, he does love company. Even if he is just sleeping, he likes to be in the rooms we are in. Same goes for being outside. He's not a dog that begs to go outside and play by himself. He loves to be outside but with us. Even when he goes out to the backyard for a restroom break he prefers that we are with him. We just don't think Osi will be happy in our home always separated from us once we have the baby. And we don't feel like he will be able to handle a baby/toddler/child in the home. Osi needs a patient, experienced special needs dog owner, trainer or vet to take care of him. You will love him once you two bond as we have loved him all these years. It breaks our hearts to let him go. (Less)

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

    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.
