Creating the feel that Rookie was watching out the window by using props and training.

Rookie is a 2YO male Catahoula Leopard Dog x rescued by Barlee’s Angels in Ontario, Canada, from a high volume shelter where he’d sat for a long time with no interest. He was one of our contact’s favourites, but in danger of euthanasia after three months when they started to fill up. He continues to wait for his forever home, now five more months waiting.

Inspired by Rookie’s resilience, and that of all the dogs in his position.

Feel free to contact me at for direct purchases.

    Lovely capture Jenny!…Everything crossed he finds a nice home. Is he a handful?

  • He’s actually not! Active like a Catahoula, but pretty well-behaved. Hoping for something for him soon. :)
