Hi there! 🐾😃 My name is Wackies after the cereal. Click here to meet me!
I am a loving and energetic female pup. I enjoy snuggling on the couch in between long walks and exercising. I am seeking a loving adopter who thinks exercise is FUN too and a necessity of everyday life. I am still young, about 15 months, and about 42 lbs. They say I look to be a Catahoula mix.

Catahoulas respond best to positive reinforcement, need a strong leader, are loyal and energetic. Between my breed mix and young age, daily exercise is a MUST. Exercise for me can be swimming, hiking, retrieving balls or flying discs. Agility and obedience training are also great activities for me as well as mental stimulation. So a couple of daily interactive training back yard sessions or a hike or interactive play is highly desirable to keep me a happy camper and a good girl.
I am housebroken and crate trained and extremely athletic. I show affection by leaning into my people and cuddling. I am happy to work on perfecting my commands as long as treats are involved. :) It's that Catahoula positive training reinforcement thing. :). An ideal day for me would be running around the yard, a round of obedience training, a nice long walk to see the world outside my home and sidling up on the couch next to someone who loves me. I LOVE to play TUG and to play with a flirt pole.
I may be enough fun and love to be your only dog. Sometimes my breed mix can be selective about doggie friends.
I am currently in a boarding facility. The staff and all of the volunteers who visit say I am a total love bug.
Because of my youthful exuberance, I am likely best in a home with older children, a FENCED yard would be super nice and an adopter who will make sure I get a lot of daily exercise and love. Want to be my loving leader??
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
