|Rescue Me ID: 14-10-23-00430Crystal (female)|
It is clear that CRYSTAL is a big, beautiful Catahoula girl who deserves to find a good forever home. What may not be obvious is that Crystal is deaf and will need a special home with a family who will understand her limitations and who has experience with a deaf dog or is willing to work with a dog who is deaf. She knows hand commands so her humans will just need to learn what they are. She is 3 yrs old, spayed, current on shots and crate trained. She gets along with other dogs and she is cat friendly. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Crystal if it means she will have a good forever home. This dog will come with her own crate. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 14-10-21-00288Bronx (female)|
Bronx is a 14 week old Catahoula /Shar Pei mix who is house trained (doggy door). She is up to date on all shots and is spayed and currently weighs 17 lbs. I expect that she will be 35-45 lbs full grown. I have marked Bronx as special needs because of the very specific type of home that is going to be right for her. She is going to need a very patient person/family who has no small children, preferably another medium to large sized calm dog who enjoys playing, and a large fenced in area or acreage. Here is a bit of background on Bronx. For her first 8 weeks of existence, she had no human contact. We pulled her and her sister, Bristol from the Animal Shelter. They were absolutely ravaged by flea bites, had gooey eyes and were absolutely terrified. Another rescue group came before us and took all the other puppies but left behind these two pitiful looking girls. Once I saw them, I knew we would take them, I mean we are a 'rescue' after all, but I also knew they were going to come with a lot of issues, and they have. For the first 2 weeks of having them at home, I had to chase them down to catch them twice a day to administer their meds for their various infections. Bronx clearly did not want to be held .. and I spent 2 weeks of forcing her to cuddle with me to start to build that trust factor. Slowly but surely, we made progress. After having them for just over 2 weeks, they were house trained (I have a doggy door and they have constant access to a fenced in lot). They still had a lot of issues, just as I thought they were improving, I found out they also had demodex (a type of hereditary mange that is not contagious and can't be transferred), so now I am also treating them for that. Bronx and I have spent weeks getting to know each other and building that bond. Any new family that considers adding Bronx to their family is going to have to go through the same thing I did ... she is very slow to trust, but once she makes that bond, it is there and it is solid. I get greeted every morning with a wagging tail and kisses. She jumps up on the couch and cuddles with me (for a bit). She still doesn't like to get picked up, but will tolerate it when necessary. She LOVES other dogs and enjoys wrestling and playing. She still needs to learn gentle play, as at times when they all get playing it can get a bit much, but she enjoys it and is great with other dogs. Bronx is also very protective ... she honestly barks at anyone who isn't me when they come into a room. She doesn't lunge or go to them, just barks and than runs in another direction. That being said, I can pick her up and carry her to someone else and they can pet her, help bath her and hold her and she has does nothing but sit there. She just needs to find the right person who is willing to take the time and build that bond with her, knowing the first two weeks are going to be full of barking and chasing. Everyone in the family will have to put the same effort and time into building that bond. She is just simply not your typical puppy through no fault of her own, but rather her circumstances. She is a wonderful puppy once she let's you in ... full of wagging tails and kisses and you can also take comfort in knowing that she will always alert you to someone that she doesn't know. She loves to be outside as well .. so it important for her to be able to be outside, running around and than be able to come inside and curl up on the couch or a doggy bed. She had a rough start in life, and I get that it is going to take a very special family who is willing to put in the time and effort it is going to take to make her a part of their family, but trust me .. she is WORTH it! It won't be easy ... I was second guessing them myself .. but once you turn that corner with her ... you just feel like you have done the right thing! Please watch the video and see the Bronx that I see .. and check your heart to see if you have a loving and permanent home for this little girl. Her adoption fee is $200 and she is located and fostered in Tennessee. Transportation options are available for around $150 to the Northeast area to get her home to you. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 14-10-21-00276Bristol (female)|
Bristol is a 14 week Catahoula / Shar Pei mix who is 20 lbs. She is spayed, up to date on all shots and is house trained (doggy door). We think she will be 35 to 45 lbs when full grown. Here is a bit of background on Bristol. For her first 8 weeks of existence, she had no human contact. We pulled her and her sister, Bronx, from the Animal Shelter. They were absolutely ravaged by flea bites, had gooey eyes and were absolutely terrified. Another rescue group came before us and took all the other puppies but left behind these two pitiful looking girls. Once I saw them, I knew we would take them, I mean we are a 'rescue' after all, but I also knew they were going to come with a lot of issues, and they have. For the first 2 weeks of having them at home, I had to chase them down to catch them twice a day to administer their meds for their various infections. Bristol was a little bit more open to being held and cuddled, but always had her guard up. Slowly but surely, we made progress. After having them for just over 2 weeks, they were house trained (I have a doggy door and they have constant access to a fenced in lot). They still had a lot of issues, just as I thought they were improving, I found out they also had demodex (a type of hereditary mange that is not contagious and can't be transferred), so now I am also treating them for that. Bristol loves to run, play and wrestle with other dogs, regardless of how big they are. Bristol still has to work on learning proper play as when the 3 of them get playing, it can get rough at times. She loves to be outside and would do well in a house that allows her a lot of outside time in either a fenced area or acreage, but also access to a warm, comfy doggy bed in the house with the family. Bristol loves to follow me around and seeks attention from those she has built that relationship with. She is not going to be an instant fit. She will need time to adjust to new surroundings and people, she will need constant support and love and attention to let her know she is safe and she is going to be ok. You can fully expect that she is going to run and bark and play scared while she learns to adjust to her new home and people. You have to understand that she has only known me as the person who has cared for her, fed her and taken care of her .. and it took me weeks to get to where we are now. Bristol needs a family who is willing to be patient, loving and be ok with a dog who right off the bat doesn't love you instantly. She would do great in a home who already has a medium to large sized calm, young dog who likes to play. She is going to need someone to show her the ropes. I promise you she is a love bug once she lets you in and she loves treats and getting praised. I would not want to put her in a home with small children, but teenagers or older would be great. Please consider giving Bristol a chance. She is a happy girl who loves to give kisses and whose tail is always in motion. She is really a wonderful pup who just had a bad start in life and now is trying to learn how to trust humans and make that connection with them, and she has .. and she wants to. Please don't hold her past against her and just pass over her as she didn't have any choice in it and considering her background, I think her and Bronx both are making tremendous progress. Her adoption fee is $200 and she is located and fostered in Tennessee. Transportation options are available for around $150 to the Northeast area to get her home to you. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 14-10-10-00548Greta (female)|
Greta is a sweet girl that needs a special home. Her owner adopted her not knowing she was deaf. When she could not learn the traditional way, Greta's owner became frustrated and locked her in a kennel and a crate most of the time. She is a sweet girl that loves people, she loves to play with other dogs, she is a bit rambunctious. I work with a rescue that right now can not handle any more special needs dogs. I am hoping to find a good home that has the skills to work with a deaf dog or a rescue that can help place her! I will get her spayed before any private party adopts her!

|Animal ID: 14-10-06-00713Bailey (female)|
Bailey is a muscular three year old female. She is a beautiful brindle. She has been kept in the house and is not happy. She has issues with being food and kennel aggressive. She does respond well to men. She has never been around children and do not think she would do well with them. She is very attached to me but protests when I make her do somethink she does not want to. I really think a man would have more success with her than I have. She really is a sweet dog.

|Rescue Me ID: 14-10-06-00700Bailey (female)|
Bailey is a three year old Brindle. She is a very muscular dog and is extremely active. She is kennel and food aggressive. She has been owned by three women and our personalities are not strong enough to manage her. She has been worked with by two different trainers and neither one knew anything about catahoulas and they did not help her. She does not relate well with cats, but does get along well with our other dog which is pit bull catahoula mix and is 8 years old. I feel sure the right man could turn her into an excellent dog.

|Rescue Me ID: 13-06-19-00199Lucee (female)|
Hi, my name is LUCEE and I am a female CATAHOULA looking for my forever home. I was rescued just in time from a shelter because my dad passed away unexpectedly and I sat with him a day or so until they discovered he had passed. I was picked up by animal control and taken to the shelter. I had just lost my best friend and now put in a place with strange people and other dogs. I was so scared and confused because since a puppy all I knew was my dad, but thanx to my new foster mom and the Catahoula Rescue, Inc. I have been saved and looking for someone to love me as much as I will love them. I am spayed, microchipped and UTD on all my shots. I am heartworm negative and currently on flea prevention and heart guard. I have one blue eye and one brownish green eye which makes me very UNIQUE. My foster mom says I am smart and loveable.... I know basic commands like sit, stay, shake, down, and the occasional 'no' word. I would like to be the only pet as I yearn for attention. I am a really good girl but don't care for other dogs or cats very much as I was not around other animals when I lived with my dad. I am not sure about a large male companion as I have never had a guy friend and he should be a fun easy type guy friend that just likes to be kind, hike and play. My dad did take me for walks and I was very friendly with all my neighbors. I will be 4 years old in September and since I am Catahoula I am just getting out of my puppy days and I am in the prime of my life. I have a long healthy life to lead and would love to share with some kind loving animal lover. I need a fenced in yard so I can run, play and get my exercise. The Catahoula Rescue, Inc. will need you to fill out an adoption application to make sure we are a perfect fit. My adoption fee is $150.00. I still think of my dad but am happy and full of life and I enjoy being near my human friends all the time. I will love you forever and make a great companion if you give me a chance. Thank you and hope to meet you soon.

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