Meet adoptable, 3 year old, deaf Catahoula Leopard dog Athena who is looking for a loving forever home with someone who will cherish her, continue daily positive reinforcement training/enrichment/socialization and always keep her safe. She would love a home with a fenced in yard where she can run and play and stay safe.

From her current caregiver: I say this with a heavy heart but unfortunately I have to rehome our three year Catahoula mix. She’s a very sweet girl and is still working on basic training since she is deaf but she is food and treat driven and lives indoors. She gets along with other dogs that are low to medium energy and children 8 and older.

The reason for this decision is a hard one unfortunately she needs a more experienced trainer and time. With a newborn coming the next month its going to be near impossible for me to provide this for her. There are also early signs that the change of dynamics of our household is starting to affect her negatively and I do not want her to fall down the wrong behavioral path due to circumstances that aren’t no fault of hers.
