Featured Rescue - Bella the Catahoula Leopard Dog

The Catahoula Leopard Dog is one of my favourites. There are currently 1196 available for adoption through Petfinder. There were a LOT of them available after the flooding caused by Katrina, but the numbers have decreased since then.

This is Bella. She's 5 years old and apparantly an escape artist. It is reported that if she gets bored in confinement, she starts looking for ways to get out.

If you're interested in Bella, she's currently in a foster home in NY.

They are, indeed, absolutely lovely dogs!

Good luck to Bella that she finds a good home with a tall fence.

Y'know, I've never met one in the fur.
Are they a hound type? She's got a soulful face.

Good luck to her!

GL - Yup, Catahoula Leopard Hound. Knew a few mixes. Lovely dogs. Hope she finds a good home... I really have affinity for spotty merle mutt doggies.
