Default A rare thing for me: A Dog Want

http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/25772916

This girl came into my store today (her foster mom comes in all the time with her foster du jour) and I fell in love with her. She's the weirdest little mix of a girl - looks like an Aussie and a Staffy had a baby with a thick coat and a curly tail (spitz?)

Super sweet, smart, energetic, biddable. Oh lawd I had the wants.

She is available through a Catahoula-dedicated rescue here in Ottawa... they pull catahoula mixes from the states that are on the kill floor and transport them here. :P I believe that's where this girl came from.

I wouldn't right now. Way too much going on in my life, lately I have to work very hard and cut corners just to give Finnegan what he needs. I'll be single-dogged for awhile yet. Unfortunately. <3

Well I'm not sure about Ontario, but I see a lot of purebred catahoulas in Alberta. Not more than I see labs, border collies, and pitbulls, but enough for them to be a consideration in a merle mix breed.


But my goodness, good thing she isn't around me or I would be half tempted. If I weren't so rooted in my must-have-(baby)puppy, anyways. She's adorable!

Actually, there are quite a few "breeders" in Ontario, and, yah, she's through a catahoula rescue where they pull from other shelters and rescues. I wouldn't call them rare hefe., really.
