Update 10/2/18 – Belle has been adopted!
Met adoptable 1.8 year old deaf Catahoula Leopard dog Belle who is looking for a loving forever home with someone who will cherish her and always keep her safe.
From her caregiver: Belle is a deaf Catahoula Leopard Dog. She has been with us since May of 2018. She gets along well with our Cat and other Dog and does extremely well with our 3 year old! She is the perfect dog, except for that she loves to RUN. We have been working with her trying to get her to stay safe off leash and because of her hearing impairment she is hard to redirect – she has shown some promise with a training collar but she seems to like to chase cars and we live next to a busy country highway.
We have another on the way and I am afraid for her to get out and get injured while I am inside with two young ones. I feel that she needs a home that is active – either with access to a dog park or with a large fenced in area or yard. She knows basic commands such as sit, stay and come. She loves to be by your side every minute. This isn’t an easy listing to post but I feel that with the right environment she would THRIVE. She makes the funniest groaning sounds to talk to you and she is not skittish like some deaf dogs can be. Her eyes get you every time, and when she is looking at you and wondering she looks like Dobby the Troll. I honestly believe she would do well with any kind of family with any kind of pets as long as she is given that opportunity for a safe environment.
