Arrival Story:
A co-worker friend rescued her from a park in Denver where she was abandoned and obviously abused at 8 weeks old. Due to various personal reasons she was unable to keep Della in her home. We agreed to foster the little gumbo girl and give her the care and training she needed in order for her to be placed with the right family. **UPDATE: Della has found a wonderful new home!! We miss her terribly but are so thankful she was found by her new family, who saw her for the gem that she is.**

Delacroix is a sweet, smart, and beautiful pup who gets along great with other dogs and really likes to play. She is shy around strangers, but warms up quickly with good attention and love. Dell is not aggressive but is definitely assertive - she can be stubborn if given the time to think about it. A typical Catahoula for sure! Della needs a home where she is given lots of love & attention, along with daily hikes/runs. A fenced in yard is a must, so she can be free to chase the squirrels during the day and just enjoy the outside. She is also content to hang out with her guardian during the day - sitting at your feet unless you tell her otherwise. Della would prefer to live with another dog or two, and she's great with cats also - she knows they are the boss. She's good with kids as well. Since Della is so smart and eager to learn, we think she would be great at agility training!!
