Introducing Coffman. This handsome Catahoula mix boy arrived at the shelter as a stray, and was never claimed. His estimated date of birth is 8/1/2022.

The good: he has a very loving nature, adores all the people he meets, gets along with most of the other dogs at the shelter, and is enthusiastic about treats so will hopefully train fairly quickly.

The challenging: he has not yet fully mastered housetraining (though he is improving slowly), and he is NOT a good traveler. Coffman gets quite car-sick and is very anxious about riding - so much so that we just wish we could find him a home within walking distance of the shelter! Unfortunately, that is not going to happen, so we will be looking into medication to help him get to his forever home with the least amount of anxiety and nausea.

It's clear he's had no real training, which could be why no one came to claim him. Pups are adorable when they are little, but without the necessary work on house, leash, and obedience training, they grow into unruly doggos who become "shelter project dogs." Are you up for the challenge of being Coffman's teacher and mentor? Once he is polished up a bit, this gem is going to SHINE.

NOTE: FOR THE REST OF 2023, A DONOR IS SPONSORING ADOPTION FEES FOR SELECTED PETS! This means any adoption payment from the adopter is optional and will be fully tax-deductible; if the adopter's donation is less than our normal adoption fee, the sponsor will make up the difference.

All pets arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and vaccinated. Adoption fee for Coffman is a suggested minimum of SPONSORED (pay what you like) (more gratefully accepted). All pets are placed with a 30-day money-back trial period, to give pet and family enough time to discover any unknown allergies or other conflicts.

Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to the Seattle area, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your donation to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!
