Explore the woods
Our Pooda Houla (Catahoodle is such a better name btw) is a big floppy energetic dude with long lanky legs. Still just a pup, 6 months old. Very friendly and chill, except when he gets excited, then he's very friendly and crazy hyper. Will lick you to death. He's black and takes more after the poodle for us, brown eyes and curly short-medium hair. He has two coats though, the poodle coat and the shorter catahoula underneath it. We haven't trimmed his fur yet, just got him a week ago, but I kind of wonder if maybe his undercoat looks a bit different or has some faint spots maybe. My experience so far has been, he eats and poops and pees a lot and isn't quite house trained yet, but he's getting better at using the pads and going outside every day and he's definitely more than worth all the work. He's big and in that awkward and clumsy "I don't know the dimensions of my body yet" phase and it's adorable, hence the name Scooby Doo. Glad to have rescued him and given him a home, hope to give him a good long life on 1+ acre of land with woods all around :) But check for fleas and ticks OFTEN and get preventative heartworm meds/tick chews if you live in a densely wooded area!!
