My name is Ronin, your typical misunderstood teenager who’s trying to find his place in the world. My beautiful double blue eyes and talented vocal communication skills can make it hard to read me but I’m really just a big puppy who likes to steal socks and initiate a game of chase. I will tell you when I need to go outside, when I want to play, and when I don’t think you’re paying enough attention to me. That’s helpful, right? I figure it leaves less guessing on your end. Like most Catahoulas, I don’t initially like everyone (dogs and people) I meet and really need slow introductions until I get to know them better. I live with two dogs in my foster home and do well with both, especially playing out in the yard.
As a high-energy dog that’s never had the luxury of running around in a big fenced-in yard I have to say it was worth all the hype! I can run around unattached and do dog things like roll in the grass and play fetch or sometimes keep away, not sure which I like more. Don’t get me wrong, I still like a good workout to burn off steam. Anything from walking, running, hiking, or maybe something different like agility or scent work sounds amazing! In my past life, I did a lot of training and like to stay fresh on what I know so you can throw that into the mix as well.
After I get all that energy out, I am up for some Netflix time on the couch. When it’s time to go to bed I really try to make my case that I should be allowed under the covers, I have yet to win this and have had to settle for laying on top with a measly throw blanket to keep warm. When the weekend rolls around I don’t mind sleeping in and will stay in bed if you do, we all need to recharge.
They say I’m leash reactive, whatever that means, supposedly I overreact to some things on walks but I say they aren’t reacting enough so I have to make up for it. I don’t pay much attention to dogs out in their yards or people walking on the other side of the street, maybe it’s just a space thing. Really good treats always help to get my attention, the smellier the better. My foster peeps said they are bringing me somewhere that’s a little busier than where we normally walk to see how I do. They’re even threatening to write up report cards on my behavior! How rude.

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.
Ronin’s adoption donation is $450 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.
