After a week of living in the woods and only making occasional appearances to eat the food left for her, Lynne was coaxed with Vienna Sausages into 6’x 6’ kennel. Never showing any aggression, only suspicion, I carried her to the crate waiting in the van and headed home.
During introductions to our dogs she froze, tucked her tail and dropped her head for the sniff inspection. She then took what may have been her first steps into a house; approximately three minutes later, she peed in front of the fridge. She has only peed one more time in the house, a few times on our deck and a couple times in her crate at night. One month later, all business is done in the yard!
Lynne is extremely food motivated and I am pretty sure she can tell time; she doesn’t let us postpone meals by more than 30 minutes or so. Her very favorite activity is being pet followed closely by going for runs on our property or rides in the car. She does ok on a leash but prefers no leash so she can zip around at lightning speed and follow her nose where it leads. When in the car she loves to hang her head out the window and let the wind flap her ears and lips...silly girl.
Lynne isn’t a nonsense barker; if she barks it’s for good reason. She hasn’t offered to chew anything up or get into the trash, but if she gains access to the dog food, she’ll help herself to a bonus meal. She is also easily disciplined; a stern look and firm “no” is about all it takes for her to learn a rule.

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.
Lynne’s adoption donation is $400 which includes Rabies, DHLPP, Bordetella, fecal test, heartworm test, is on preventative, microchip and neuter depending on age at time of adoption. We do not have a physical shelter; all of our dogs are fostered in individual foster homes across the New England and Canada.
