All of our adoptable pets are housed with foster families. When age appropriate, they have been spay/neutered, crate, leash and house trained. They have all been living in a family environment so have been evaluated for temperament and personality. We believe that we should know each pet well enough to make sure that when adopted, everyone lives happily ever after.
Catahoula Coonhound mix
Hunter is a year and a half old, 45 lb black and tan merle Catahoula/Coonhound mix that was found, almost starved to death, in the Nantahala National Forest. He has been neutered, given all his shots, and tested heartworm negative. This is a fun-loving sweet dog that has been house trained and loves people and the 5 other dogs in my pack. His coat looks like a purebred Catahoula; however, Hunter has large coonhound ears. His coat length is between short and medium. We think he is a mix of Catahoula and Black and Tan Coonhound. Hunter hasn't been tested with cats yet but really likes to play with other dogs. He is also on a constant search for food, given his starvation experience, and is only now becoming confident in his survival. He does require a "sturdy" chew bone in the house. This is a humorous dog who seems double jointed. He sleeps on the edge of the bed and wakes me up when he turns over and occasionally rolls off, landing with a "surprised" thump. Hunter needs a fenced yard for exercise and would love daily walks in the woods. I am working on letting him run free with my other dogs on walks. He will make a wonderful family pet
