Here’s Dandy! At 11 years old, he is a 50 pound Catahoula mix. Dandy is described as “one of the sweetest dogs you’ll ever meet!”. He is an easy going boy whose family feels he’s not getting the attention he deserves. Do you have time for Dandy?

We are told Dandy has lived with other dogs and does well when meeting new dogs. He has not lived with cats. Dandy is good with kids, we’d suggest a home with older kids who know to be gentle and respectful of dogs.

Dandy can be a little anxious when his people leave the house but we are told he does settle after a bit. We always recommend giving any dog time to learn a new routine and understand their new people will return and all will be O.K.!  Patience and understanding is always important. Dandy is accustomed to having the company of another dog in the home so a home with a welcoming dog may help Dandy’s transition to a new home and new life.

At this time Dandy can manage a few hours between potty breaks. He can also manage stairs. Dandy is used to hanging out with his people inside his home, going outside to do his business as needed.

Daily walks would be something Dandy would appreciate. We are told he can pull on leash in his excitement. With a dog his size, one must be able to manage his strength. Working on Dandy’s leash skills could be helpful. He sounds like a smart dog who wants to please his people. While he likes exercise, Dandy also enjoys his downtime. He is good at chilling out when the time is right.

Dandy will bark when strangers walk past his house or if he’s in his car, he will bark at passersby. That sounds very appropriate to us, a dog who is alerting and “protecting”.  This handsome boy sounds certainly sounds dandy!

Dandy is located in University Place, WA. For contact information please email:
