GENERAL INFO

The Catahoula Leopard Dog is a medium-large, short-coated dog, known for its many varied coats and eye colors and patterns. Catahoulas are the only breed of dog to have historically originated in the state of Louisiana. The breed requires firm guidance and early socialization, as they can be independent, territorial, and protective. For the same reasons, they do not allow mistreatment and will assert themselves in self-defense. Once they know their place in the family unit, they are affectionate, loyal, and gentle. Also called the Catahoula Hog Dog, they are used as tree dogs, herding dogs, watchdogs, guard dogs, and of course as loyal companions.
