Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog mix
Age: 1 year old
Lordis is a Dixie Dog, and recently arrived at Dakin in Springfield all the way from Texas. Being young and untrained, she is very exuberant and can be rambunctious in her excitement. With that in mind, she would be best suited to a home with older children (ages 13 and up). Lordis has a sweet nature and LOVES to play with toys. She’s very high energy, so it’s best if her adopter has a lot of experience with dogs. She’ll fit right in if you’ve got a busy household! This Texas-born pup will be a terrific companion if you are very active and enjoy hiking, walking and jogging…she’ll be right in step with you. But she’s also an affectionate snuggler and loves to cuddle up as well.
Rocket Recall – If you’re completely frustrated because your dog does not come when you call his name, consider enrolling in Rocket Recall, a 50-minute, 3-week class offered by Dakin to teach dogs to respond to your call and come to you, even when he has a choice to make between a delicious scent and you. Not only will having a dog who comes when he is called make your happier, it will keep him safer.
Classes start August 8 at 9am at Dakin’s Leverett Adoption Center, and August 24 at 7pm at Dakin’s Springfield Adoption and Education Center. Please visit www.dakinhumane.org for more info and to enroll.
