Medium  |  Male

Mt Vernon, IN


DOB: 5/10. Weight: ~60 lbs.

From Cato's foster mom: Cato is a great dog! He is very strong so he will need a strong pack leader. He is now on a Sporn Halter or a Sporn Harness, 2 different things and that makes it easier for people to handle him and hopefully train him. He is house trained and crate trained and loves to lay on a rug and chew a toy all day long with you in the same room. He is really very sweet in a hulk sort of way. He is also very intelligent. His energy level is high out in the yard (Must be fenced) where he loves to run but he is a couch potato inside. His foster family has big trees in the back yard and often he finds a 5-6 foot branch that has fallen out of the trees and he picks it up and runs for all he's worth! He is just a play-baby at heart. He would do best with older kids (mid to late teens) and they need to be part of the training that he will need with his new family. He is a lover but not of cats and he needs to be the only dog.

He has had a rabies shot, 7-way shot, bordetella, and been wormed. He is also neutered, microchipped, and heartworm negative.

Cato came into the shelter on 4/10/14. He is in a foster home.
