We are doing the best we can to find the right home for each dog or cat, just need your help too! :) It is with heavy heart we are posting Cleo at this time in her life. She was adopted from us a couple of years ago(check out the picture with her Mom and siblings!) and she went to the most awesomest--pretty sure that needs to be a word--of families. Cleo has had a great puppyhood, she really has, she has been very much loved. Her family consisted of her Mom and Dad, they were so wonderfully retired. Dad LOVED to be outdoors, had beautiful gardens and a huge koi pond. They enjoyed countless hours outside with the other two small dogs, at the time, just enjoying the good life. Mom loved Cleo as well, even tho Cleo was a little bit of a rowdy Daddy's girl. Cleo's family had grown kids with so many fun little grandkids which she adored. She was raised with family gatherings at Grandpa and Grandma's house. She has met babies, toddlers, teenagers...she has kissed everyone, more than once!! Cleo's life was the best, but then sadly things changed. Dad got sick, he had cancer. Things got bad quickly and he has passed. We took Cleo into our home while he was on hospice, she can be a big goofy girl and a little overly affectionate with everyone she meets. Not everyone needs a big hug and a lick from Cleo!! We had found out from one of the adopters of Cleo's siblings that she is indeed 100% Mountain Cur. She came from Alabama back in 2021 with Mom and siblings. Mountain Curs are a working breed, they are quite prey driven(she is very excited about squirrels and such!). She is looking for a family that fully understands the activity needs of a working breed such as a Mountain Cur. They love to follow their nose. are also used for,used as a water dog. Cleo will do well with a very active family, she LOVES going for walks and exploring. She is terrific with everyone she meets, albeit a little overly affectionate! Cleo is also totally housebroken, eager to please, and would love a family with perhaps another active and playful dog and some kids she can love on! Cleo's adoption fee is $300, now $275. She will go home with tons of supplies to help her settle into her new home. She is a funky, funny, lovable goofball of a dog, if that is what you are looking for, she is you girl!!
