In search of a special family for a really special little guy. Meet Peyton (goes by the name Chip in his foster home). He is a 9 week old Catahoula mix. The runt of the litter at a current 8 lbs, we are trying to fatten him up. Thankfully, he loves food and is treat motivated. He could possibly be about 50lbs when fully grown.
He has an adorable spotted nose and tan and brown spots dotted on his white/tan coat. His most striking features are his beautiful blue eyes. He happens to be vision impaired, but he can see some things. This disability does not hinder his playful puppy nature, and he is very smart. After bumping into a furniture piece or two at first, he has now memorized the layout of his foster home. He knows where his crate is, senses when someone is on the sofa and comes over to be picked up, knows where and how many steps are in front of the house to hop up after his walks. He especially knows where the treat drawer is located and the gate to go out. He is learning basic commands and loves to play with toys (though a game of catch doesn’t happen with limited vision, he adores tug of war, squeaky toys and puppy chew toys with treats in them that he can smell). While he does run and play a lot, his favorite thing is to snuggle with his humans. He naps often and prefers to do it on a warm lap!
He is currently living and getting along with cats, dogs and crazy kids and would make a wonderful family dog.
