The Catahoula is a short-coated dog, well muscled but not bulky, giving an impression of agility and endurance. The breed comes in many unusual coat colours and patterns as well as various eye colours.

In temperament, the Catahoula can be very serious when working yet clownish when off the job. The Catahoula is not aggressive or shy but can by aloof toward strangers. He is naturally protective, territorial, and independent. As a family companion, the Catahoula is affectionate, gentle and loyal.

Catahoula can make a wonderful pet. The objective in training this dog is to achieve a pack leader status. It is a natural instinct for a dog to have an order in their pack. When we humans live with dogs, we become their pack. The entire pack cooperates under a single leader.

The Catahoula Leopard Dog's origin is inknown but it is an all-American working dog and believed to be descended from crosses of Native American Dogs, Red Wolves, and others brought to North America by the Spanish conquistadors. The breed was recognized by the United Kennel Club (UKC) on 1 January 1995 and was made the official State Dog of Louisiana on 9 July, 1979.
If you are considering a Catahoula Leopard Dog puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances. Breeding of any dog should not be done until after they have been proven to be free of evidence of significant hereditary diseases.
