********************************************************************************************************
-training facility to be determined by the rescue

-leash aggression that will require long term training-more than one course with a professional

-needs someone to be patient for him to build trust with, once trust and respect is achieved he’s very easy to work with. He gives back just as much as his handler puts in, it’s very rewarding to see how quickly he makes progress. Cato is a very smart dog!

-separation anxiety/alarm dog. He may express unhappiness in his crate when leaving the home or bark if he hears noises inside or outside the home if he doesn’t know where they are coming from.

-Needs a home with people that have bully breed experience. No children or roommates, the perfect home is a single person or a couple that will stay on the same page for training

-Cato would do best with one female dominant dog. He is also half kangaroo, so 6 foot minimum fence height unless you plan to have a tie in the ground (no zip lines, must be heavy duty anchor)

Hi My name is Cato! I was born on 4/19/17. I was pulled out of an impound by MPBR right before being euthanized. I’m so excited to be able to still have the chance to find my forever home! My nickname is Catortots. I’m a huge teddy bear. I love to cuddle with other dogs and my foster humans. I snuggle right into my foster mommy’s arms when we take naps together. I’m learning how to contain all my happiness. I have a lot of energy, so I love to run and play. Tug and fetch are some of my favorite games. I know a few very solid tricks. I have hold a sit and lay down to the point of waiting to be released. What this means is my foster parents can put me in a sit stay and they can leave the room, come back, then tell me I’m aloud to move! I’m a rock star at this. I’m also crate trained. When I’m not having anxiety I stay quiet, I like knowing that you are home.

I was named Cato because it means: intelligent, shrewd. I’m very smart, but there are things that I am working on! When I came into my new foster home I didn’t listen at all. This has changed completely with all the training they do with me. Every day we work on training exercises to help me be the best dog that I can. My new parents will need to be strict and firm so I listen to them like my fosters. During walks I still pull a bit, but have come a long way. I’m taken for walks quite a bit because I tend to bark when new people approach me. It’s not because I’m mean, I just don’t know them and I feel the needs to say something. If I’m provided a minute to stop barking, I do a good job at saying hi and meeting them. I just need slow introductions. They say this can be classified as leash aggression. On the other side of things, I do great meeting new dogs right away! I’m also pretty good around cats.

If you are looking to provide some extra care and training to an adoptable dog like me, lets set up a meet and greet! I’m very charming and even cuter in person.
