About Cougar

AGE-2 years old

Energy level- -Medium

Medical history-Healthy. 

Ideal home- Fenced yard with family home part of the day. 

Cougar came to us from a local shelter. Cougar was terrified of people, but over the months, he has transformed! The ideal home for Cougar would have a fully fenced yard and someone home part of the day. He goes out every few hours for a break and uses pee pads if needed. Cougar does not like being separated or crated because it makes him very upset.  No crating please. Cougar would do best with a family who is home most of the day. 

Cougar is very sweet and loves to be by his people. He weighs around 16 pounds. He is being fostered with other dogs and gets along fine 99% of the time,  but he has had a skirmish here and there, so we prefer that he go to a home without other dogs. He’s groomed every 6-8 weeks. Cougar loves to play with toys!

He also enjoys his daily dental chews. Cougar loves people but is a bit timid when you reach for him. He will take a few steps back until he gets used to you.

Because he’s timid, CHR Is asking that his new home has a stand-up gate installed at the entryway, so he does not escape.


He’s a playful and sweet boy who can’t wait to meet his new family!
