Adoptable Pet of the Week

Goober is a one-year-old Catahoula leopard dog. He is a very cool dog, but he needs a gentle, patient person to help build up his confidence. Goober is sweet and will bond strongly. Catahoula leopard dogs are one of the few truly American breeds. It was developed by the first colonists in Louisiana and became especially popular in the parish of Catahoula. Goober is an active pup, affectionate, eager to please, and quick to learn. He is shy, but warms up quickly.
