Hi! My name is
I have an Adoption Application Pending!
Shepherd/Catahoula Leopard dog/Mix
Date of Birth
December 15, 2019
When I want to play I get pretty excited. With my dog friend I bark in her face and I’m working on less “talking” …on that note, I need to work on my dog play manners. Sometimes I annoy dogs until they play with me, and I don’t understand that “no means no”. I need to learn appropriate manners around other dogs, and people who will help me by separating me before I’m this thing humans call “overstimulated”..giving me sociable play buddies my size and time outs for cool off periods when needed. I’m a puppy in a big dog’s body! No dog parks for me please; I’m like an obnoxious frat boy bumping in to everyone in a bar, wondering why they wouldn’t like me…small pets might not be best, as I could knock them about like toys, and they would not like that either.
With my human friends, I tend to use my mouth a lot to play and they don’t seem to like it. I promise with patience and consistency I will get better and play without my mouth. Everyday I get better and pick up on all the new things they are teaching me here. I just love playing tug rope with friend or to whip it around and around. This place also has lots of stuffies I love to toss and catch. They give me fun games to play to keep my mind busy like a wobble kong, a stuffed kong and dog puzzles, it’s so fun!! They just love to see me smiling and their favourite smile is when my tongue is hanging out the side. They think I’m a big goof!
I bark sometimes at dogs passing by on the street but I am getting way better when I hear my human friends say “leave it”. I just LOVE walks. A home with a yard would be best for me, where I can woof and run to my heart’s content.
My ideal home would be active just like me, with some hound doggy experience, willing to commit to my long term training and socialization!” – xo, Lupin
