Miss THANG! That's her nickname. Oreo May came to me from Elicia W. from Catahoula Rescue NE in New Jersey, she'd been living the city life after being picked up as a stray in Florida. No one knows her full story or her real "name" but she's a super example of "city gone 
country". And boy oh boy does she know her GAME! This little stray girl is so full of life it's amazing. She's settled into my pack like she was born and raised right here at catahoulaville, fitting in like the 7th world wonder. Out of curiosity, we may do a little DNA testing to see IF we 
can determine who she may be, but it doesn't matter. This hard working, sweet soul has a home in the working string at J Cross Catahoulas. She has been an absolute joy to have added to the pack from day one. She's not only stealing hearts, but she's getting in the thick of things working cattle and baying hogs with the best of the best and staying until the job is done, showing the heart, drive and determination that we expect out of our own dogs and delight to see in others. This little dog has been impressive to watch develop in a very short time.

Oreo May is a prime example of the offerings of Catahoula Rescue, please, take a moment to look to see if there is a dog that YOU may be able to help, one in need of a forever home - one like Oreo May - that only needs an opportunity to succeed.

We lost May to complications of a snake bite she received while penning cattle. Once discovered, the venom had dealt it's ravages to her system and we couldn't get it stopped in time to prevent major organ damage. May's loss is one that we'll surely feel when we go to the 
woods, whether looking for cattle or hogs. She was there, giving it all she had, every time. She made it her own personal endeavor to prove, rescue or not, purebred or not, she had it, and showed it with flair. Her silly and playful personality, her zest for life and her hard working "get 'er done" style is surely something we'll sorely miss.
