An Unusual Dog Breed

Tuesday, June 9, 2020
posted by Jim Murphy

The Catahoula Leopard  is a versatile, working dog breed that originated in a region of Catahoula lake in central Louisiana. They have intriguing blue eyes and a strange coat. These dogs are extremely agile, territorial, athletic and very protective of  “their property.”  Psychologically, they are more primitive than other breeds and need constant reinforcement.

Many people say that it’s hard to describe this dog unless you own one yourself.  Some people call them “catdogs” because of their intuitive behavior and ability to climb trees. They are very intelligent dogs that needs lots of exercise and activity to keep them happy. They require a minimum of one hour of running each day and do not do well in urban areas for obvious reasons.

They make excellent working dogs and excel in herding, hunting and guarding. They are also used in police work for search and rescue and they also make excellent family pets.

The Catahoula is an assertive dog but not an aggressive one. If attacked, it will defend itself to whatever means necessary.

If you own one, spends lots of time with him in the park tossing him some of his favorite dog toys.
