Beaux is a very beautiful pup (hence the name!). He is very smart and affectionate. Still a puppy at 9 months old, Beaux has a lot of energy to burn. He loves running around the yard, rolling in grass, playing fetch and tug toys with his favorite humans. He also enjoys playing with squeaky toys and can entertain himself with them for quite a while. He has a curious mind and getting a treat out of kong toys is a no brainer for him.
House trained and crate trained, Beaux has wonderful house manners: does not reach for the table despite his size, doesn't jump on furniture but is always next to you, enjoying your company.
While Beaux loves exploring what the outside has to offer, he is more comfortable doing so inside the fenced yard or quieter streets, he knows the leash and will walk with you but needs to have a confident person by his side to guide and to listen to. A true catahoula, he is very interested in smells, birds and everything that moves, and will pull to smell the flowers and say hello to a birdie, unless you have his attention.
Beaux comes when he is called, knows "sit" and we are currently working on "down" and "stay" commands. Beaux is food-motivated and seems to be liking training and challenging tasks.
Beaux enjoys car rides and can gaze out of the car window for the whole ride. He loves meeting new people and is good with little people too but may try to herd them, therefore families with older kids would be a better match.
Beaux is good with other dogs as long as they have the same energy and desire to play and he WILL insist on playing. If you have an older family dog who doesn't want to be bothered, Beaux will not be a good match.
He is interested in cats for the play factor, and if your cats don't mind dogs, they may become good playmates.
If you are interested in adopting Beaux please email firstname.lastname@example.org and request an application. Once your application has been received and reviewed, you will be contacted via email or phone by one of our volunteers. After your application is approved, the foster parent for the dog you have selected will contact you to answer any questions you may have and determine if that dog is a good match for your family.
If you have no particular dog in mind, we will be happy to keep your application on file and notify you if the right dog should come into rescue. Catahoula Rescue of New England is an all-volunteer group. Dogs in our program are fostered by volunteers. The foster homes care for our dogs as if they were their own. All dogs have received vaccinations appropriate to age and are spayed or neutered.
Beaux's adoption donation is $400 which includes Rabies, DHLPP, Bordetella, fecal test, heartworm test when appropriate and is on preventative, microchip, and neuter. We do not have a physical shelter, all of our dogs are fostered in individual foster homes across the New England and Canada.
