Meet Congaree

It’s hard to be crabby with this cajun hound around

Hilton Head Humane Association

Congaree is seeing spots, all over him! This fun and energetic 2-year-old male temporarily living at the Hilton Head Humane Association is a Catahoulas Leopard Hound mix. The hard-working breed is the official canine of Louisiana, and was developed to catch and drive wild hogs and cattle to market. When they’re off-duty, the breed is an excellent family dog that is both protective and affectionate. Congaree possesses those wonderful traits and more, making him the perfect companion for both individuals or families. If you’re in the market for a new furry friend, go visit this special animal and laissez les bon temps rouler!
