From the Foster:  Skye is such a sweet dog and has amazing potential with a little training. She took less than 24 hours to adjust to our home and had no problems with meeting our resident dog. They haven't expressed any aggression towards each other, despite the fact that the tennis ball is both of their favorite toys. Skye is great with meeting new people but is still a little timid and can spook if you make quick movements around her. I've only had her for a short time, so her timidness should ease once she gets to know us better. Skye is  house trained. She does know that the outdoors is the right place to go potty because when I bring her outside she relieves herself in a matter of minutes. Plus, I'm currently training her to ring a bell that hangs on the wall when she needs to relieve herself. I've successfully done this with my childhood dog so hopefully in a few weeks Skye will be a pro! Skye is crate trained and that is where she sleeps and spends time while I am at work during the day. The last couple nights she has whined for about five minutes after I put her in her crate but then she quiets down and sleeps through the night. I will continue to work with her on this so that hopefully she won't whine at all! She also doesn't have accidents in her crate so it is a good place for her until she gets better with house training. She still has some of that puppy tendency to chew (she really likes blankets), so once she gets a little better with her house training, she could be left in a room that is easily blocked off from the rest of the house where there isn't much to get into. I try to get Skye out on a run and a walk everyday. She does a good job walking and running on a leash. Catahoulas are high energy working dogs so Skye would do best in a home with a fenced yard, where she could play fetch, or with an owner that likes to get out and enjoy the beautiful Minnesota weather!
