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 Potato
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’m told that I am rompy. I’m the kind of doggo that has happy feet and you will always hear where I am. Which isn’t a bad thing because if I’m told to lay down and provided something the chew on, I’m happy to hang out and do that.
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. I do very well with being quiet in there.
I have self-control around my food, I wait for the bowl to be filled and then will only eat it when I hear my release word.
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.
Going outside, we work on recalls. That way I come back when I’m called. When leaving the house, I have to let my foster parents go out first. I already learned to not jump on people!
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.
On the other side of things, I do great meeting new dogs right away! I’m also good around cats.

The best home for me would be an experienced dog owner. I’m going to need more training in my new home as well. Which is ok because the rescue requires you to do training anyways. I would really love to go to a home that has another dog or even more than one. Since I do have a lot of energy I might not be the best fit for little kids, I do like them and interact very nice, but being big with lots of energy could cause some issues-my foster parents will continue to evaluate this as they get to know me.

If I sound like a dog you can love, which is easy because I’m super handsome, please reach out for a meet and greet. I may not go to the next few adoption events because I tend to bark at new people. This is something that is being worked on and getting better, but I’m happy to meet you one on one during this process.
Thanks! – Cato
