    We are a 501c3 Rescue: See more photos on Waylon's webpage and his videos. Scroll down his page. Lots of personality in him. Copy and paste into your browser to go directly to his page. STATS: URGENT FOSTER OR ADOPTER!!! Waylon, male, 4 years old, 80 lbs. He is due for his rabies vaccine now, which I can take care of. All other vaccines are up to date. I don't believe he's had a heartworm test recently but is taking Heartgard. He currently eats Kirkland Nature's Domain, 1.5 cups twice a day mixed with warm water. HISTORY from owner!! I got Waylon in 2015 from a rescue in Texas that works with ... (Read More)rescues in the Pacific Northwest since they seem to have an even larger excess of homeless dogs than normal. I had been living in a house that I could just barely afford and was told the rent was going to increase to an amount beyond my ability to pay. I searched for an apartment that I could both afford and would except not only dogs, but large breed dogs and could not find anything before I had to move out of my house. I couldn't find anyone who could take him temporarily so with the help of my parents I have been boarding him at a ranch style facility where he never has to be on leash, has lots of time to run outside and is only crated for quiet times. I can only sustain this for so long and feel terribly about keeping Waylon away from me, his family. GOOD : Waylon is great with all people regardless of age or whether they are strangers. He simply trusts and is eager to meet and please people. He is housetrained and knows all of his basic commands. He is crate trained in wire crates. He is incredibly smart and picks up words and training very quickly. He is affectionate and very obviously attached but not particularly cuddly. He prefers to be in the same room as you or sitting next to you on the couch. He gets along with all dogs off-leash (big, small, different personality and play styles). Even though he is a high energy dog, he is calm and relaxed in the house and happy to just be in the same room as you, sleeping or snacking on his Kong. He is not a barker (unless he sees a dog or is looking at a squirrel up in a tree!)and is quiet in the house. He is not destructive with furniture in the house. He has absolutely no resource guarding problems, with people or with dogs. He loves to play, but mostly with his flirt pole or his stuffed animal toys than with a ball. Though sometimes he is interested in playing with the chuck-it. He does very well at the vet, a little nervous but is trusting and obliging to vet staff. Even though he is 4, he still has the silly energy of a puppy and often rolls around for belly rubs and makes me laugh every day. BAD : He had initial separation anxiety when I got him. He would bark in his crate, escape his crate or urinate somewhere if he was left out. With enough practicing my departure and arrival, leaving for short amounts of time and gradually increasing, he was able to overcome the anxiety. He is currently fine left out in the house, but I always give him a Kong to help distract him. He has barrier frustration, so if he is separated from an unknown dog behind a fence he will run the fence and bark and get too excited. It's the only reason I don't take him to dog parks; he gets too amped when a new dog is on its way into the park. He will get into the trash if it's left out, I always put it away before I leave. He has a strong prey drive. He chases after squirrels and would probably chase cats given the opportunity. PLEASE NOTE.. WE DO BEHAVIOR ISSUES AND WE WILL HELP WITH ISSUES, His issues are partly due to handlers. We are here to help. Good dog worthy of saving and working on. Janeen Jackson JCLDR) UGLY : Waylon's hardest problem to deal with is his leash reactivity. Living in an urban environment like Portland, he of course needs to be on leash for nearly all of his exercise and time outside that isn't the backyard. It has been a constant challenge. He is a big, strong dog and as a smaller woman he has been very difficult for me to keep under control at times. He is reactive from pretty far distances, definitely to a dog a block away and maybe even a dog two blocks away. He goes on high alert even if he hears a dog barking in the distance or sees one in the window of a house. He will lunge, pull, whine and sometimes bark. It is a STRONG reaction and food has not been a reliable distraction or incentive to remain calm, even at considerably far distances. He is reactive in the car if he sees a dog outside, but otherwise does fine in the car. The best solution I've found is to keep him in a covered crate and he stays relaxed. (NOTE** We believe in full disclosure but he is a good dog: Admin Janeen Jackson) (Less)

    Chevy is a male who weighs 60lbs and is about 1 year old. Chevy is a young Aussie mix, (maybe some Catahoula in there) looking for someone to provide him with love and guidance to help raise a wonderful canine citizen. He's well on his way! This boy is smart, responsive, and looking to please. He is a young pup, though, so sometimes can be a bit excitable and distracted easily, but what puppy isn't? Chevy is VERY social with people and wants to make friends with who whoever comes his way. He has lived with young children, and is friendly with them, but a bit exuberant, so toddlers beware. He also is experienced with cats and is very playful ... (Read More)with them! He is selective with dogs--some he likes, some he does not (mostly little dogs are a no go). He still gets into some puppy mischief--like chewing and digging, but he already has potty training down pat. An active home who can keep him stimulated physically will reap the rewards of his balanced behaviors mentally! Available at the Josephine County Animal Shelter, 1420 Brookside Blvd. Grants Pass/Merlin, across from the Grants Pass Airport. Hours: 10 AM - 4 PM Monday - Saturday. You are encouraged to visit and bring your dog to the shelter for a meet and greet where staff is ready to assist on the walking trails and play yards. With few exceptions, all adoptable adults are spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. 541 474-5458 Adoption fee for dogs are $125, for seniors over 7 years $50, for Veterans with presentation of government issued ID $62.50. Note: unless otherwise noted, we can not say if dogs do well with other dogs, livestock, chickens or cats. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Catahoula in Oregon
    Catahoula Dogs can make good pets in Oregon 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 especially well suited to boar hunting.
