Please Note: This animal is listed as a courtesy to another organization. Please be sure to contact the foster/caretaker for more information about him.

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 about two years old, 50 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 Plott Hound.  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, but is now confident in his survival.  He is not a chew dog but likes 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.  He loves our daily hikes in the woods with our "pack" of five dogs and listens well and returns when called.  He will make a wonderful family pet. Hunter is a courtesy listing and not in foster with DHS. Please contact his foster directly at 985-630-1613 or  ronstoessell@gmail.com for information on adopting this wonderful dog.
