The Haltom City Animal Services Pet of the Week for June 20, 2018 is Star. Star is about friendly & playful 9 month old female Catahoula.
"The Catahoula Leopard Dog is a medium-large, short-coated dog, known for its many varied coat and eye colors and patterns. The word catahoula is of Choctaw origin and is translated to mean “sacred lake.” Catahoulas are the only breed of dog to have historically originated in the state of Louisiana. The breed requires firm guidance and early socialization, as they can be independent, territorial, and protective. For the same reasons, they do not allow mistreatment and will assert themselves in self-defense. Once they know their place in the family unit, they are affectionate, loyal, and gentle. Also called the Catahoula Hog Dog, they are used as stock dogs, bay dogs, tree dogs, watchdogs, guard dogs, and of course as loyal companions."
Star is one of many wonderful pets currently available at our shelter. The HCAS Pet of the Week has their adoption fees waived. Call the HCAS facility at 817-759-2124 for more information
