About Sharkey

Adoption Fee: $300
Catahoula / Black Mouth Cur
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Sharkey is currently located in Fellsmere, FL (Indian River County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Transport is available to a foster home. Sharkey is a 2-year-old mixed breed - vet records indicate Catahoula and Australian kelpie in there, and we see cur, Carolina dog or maybe some retriever or shepherd. Regardless, if you are looking for a medium-sized (35-40 lbs), on-the-go, athletic and loving dog, Sharkey is your guy! This handsome young lad is a Hurricane Harvey rescue. He came in from Louisiana knowing nothing about manners and was just a goofball. He has been living with a trainer for about 6 months and has learned valuable skills like walking on lead, basic commands, and how to relax and be calm. He does need a home that will give him an outlet, be it dog sports, running, swimming or hiking. He requires a home with a fenced yard. Sharkey is light heartworm positive and will likely be treated with doxycycline and Heartgard with no activity restrictions (TBD). If he only needs slow-kill, he can be adopted outright. The rescue will pay for heartworm treatment at one of the veterinarians we work with. Sharkey gets along with other dogs and enjoys playing with them. He would be fine with older/considerate kids, but is a bit too exuberant for young ones. He is housebroken and crate trained. Sharkey is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, and microchipped. Can you help him on his journey to a forever home? Foster applications can be found at
