After a few months, you’ll really gain her trust. No birds, chickens, cats, small animals, or small children. Older, well-behaved children who are properly introduced, supervised, and given instruction on appropriate behavior around animals should be okay but they would need to move slowly around her and allow her ample time to warm up to them. She is not aggressive. These recommendations are for her comfort.

KULANI

Catahoula / Whippet mix | 4 months old | Size: 21 lbs
Temperament: Playful, Happy & Adventurous

Behavior: Kulani is very outgoing and loving. She loves to play. Needs typical puppy learning.

Kennel trained: She will howl in the kennel, She sleeps in a playpen instead.

Good with kids: Yes

Good with dogs: Yes

Good with cats: Unknown

Medical: Kulani has a lazy eye, this will affect her sight in one eye.

Ideal home: An active and loving home that enjoys outdoor activities. She will need proper training follow up. The lazy eye is a trait we have so far seen in a hand full of catahoulas coming through our rescue. It has not caused any longterm issues in these other dogs, besides loss of sight in that eye. Bear in mind pure white Catahoulas/Pits tend to also be deaf. Kulani appears to hear us well enough to respond at this time. Kulani needs an adopter that will have no issues providing any future medical care or follow up.
