    I was just curious if anyone had any information on a Louisiana Catahoula Leopard dog. One showed up at my house a few months back and my Grandpa (retired veternian) said thats what breed he was any info on them would be appreciated.

    Those are some nice dogs for sure, I almost got one last year from Black Oak Catahoulas. http://www.blackoakcatahoulas.com/

    If I lived in the country I would have one.

    Great dogs, to say the least. I've had one around for the last 10 or 12 years. Loyal, smart, and tougher than nails.

    Put that dog in the woods and I'd bet he could find a hog to bay or a squirrel to tree.

    I raised them for years, love'em, used them to catch wild cattle and hogs. Great dogs, you can get them to hunt just about anything you want them too. I've run everything from rabbits, deer and coyotes with them and used them to tree coons and squirrels. One thing, they like to kill, never had one that wouldn't kill every cat they saw. Also they are very hardheaded. Very trainable, but hardheaded , they need to know your the boss or they will be. The only other trait that's a little aggravating is it takes a Catahula longer to get out of the puppy stage than any breed I've been around, usually they have to get to about 3 years old before they stop being a pup.
