There is a very active catahoula rescue in Ontario, pretty much, they get contacted about anything that is merled(is that a term?) I wouldn't call them common up here, but i know they get a lot from US shelters.
Anything's possible. Might have him DNA'd just for giggles, at some point.

I've fostered a lot of Danes over the years, though, and he doesn't act like a Dane at all, plus he's a shorty kinda fella. I keep waiting for him to grow legs.

He bays, he loves water, he dances across logs and is already trying to climb trees--he sure fits the Catahoula heritage and it's a fun thing to call him, but like 99% of the rescues thru my doors, I really don't have much, if any, solid information on him, so who can know?

Around here, anything merle usually gets called an Aussie mix. Second guess is usually Dalmation, which is what he got slapped with.

Then again, we have a local shelter (where George and Whip came from) that regularly "finds" Caucasian Ovcharkas, and Welsh Springer Spaniels and PBGVs, hehehe. Because we know how commonly breeds like that end up stray.

Hey, in all fairness, I've had quite a few actual fosters thru here this year, and last year. Many, many years.

Some of the fosters, every once in a while, are just kinda...sticky, ya know?

You people! I'm astounded at this! Do not listen to them RFR. You know better. You know you need the space to keep fostering, so you will not be keeping him.


Send him to me IMMEDIATELY!


In all seriousness catahoulas are the only hound breed I would ever own. ...oh wait, you said he bays? Damnit.



At least send him over here for a photoshoot.

1. I was already way ready for a break from fostering for a while, anyway.

2. By the time I'm all rested up from the break, plus raising this pup, I plan on my ship having come in, and will have a new fenced 1000 acre estate, complete with state-of-the-art dog facility, agility building, and bone-shaped swimming pool.

3. His bay is mixed with bark, and comes just at the end note of it, only when he's really wound up, plus it has a really good off switch, so I have forgiven him this small thing.

4. I would love to have you do a photoshoot of him! The very next time he is acting like a puppy, I'll send him on over, for a few days at least. A photoshoot will take that long, minimum, right?

I was thinking a week or two. Depending on his volume level.

I'll be sure to send his "mute" button with him.

George and Mina will have photo threads coming soon, geesh, the audience is never satisfied around here.
