Meet Merle, adopted by Sara from the Joplin MO Humane Society. In her early college years Sara discovered the Catahoula Leopard dog breed. They are very intelligent dogs and are often used to herd cattle or sheep. She always wanted one and this summer she found and adopted a rescue puppy that is part Catahoula and part Lab.
He is approximately six months old and is quite adorable!
And Sara is a very happy puppy mama!
Evan is also very attached to Merle and misses the little pupster when he is away each week working in Manhattan.
