About the breed

Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog

Diversity's Catahoulas

The breed of dog that can be said to be rare even in Europe, the Hungarian population of the Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog, which numbers only a few individuals, brings its bright reputation from overseas. More and more people in Hungary know this rare breed with an extremely diverse appearance as a leopard dog.

The native Indian breed with high load capacity, originally bred for cattle herding and wild boar hunting, whose origins are precisely derived from the red wolf. Nowadays, the leopard dog is famous for its excellent sports performance, and last but not least, everyone’s eyes are caught by its beautiful

spotted fur. It loves children, its family and it is an excellent guardian of his territory, and although it needs a strong owner, in the right hands he is a real adorable clown. It is strongly driven by instinct, persistent and hardy, which is why it is also perfectly suited as a working dog. The striking characteristic of its appearance is his ice-blue eyes, which it brings with its from the Catahoula merle gene.

Our friends living in their breeding are outstanding representatives of the breed with their excellent pedigree and the excellent instincts of their American ancestors.

American celebrities are also happy to show off the ice blue-eyed wonders, Sylvester Stallone also has one or two of them. It’s only a matter of time before this breed becomes known outside of dog circles, as its appearance is so striking that it almost attracts curious eyes.

The wonders of our breeding are solids. There is a gene pool line that does not carries the merle gene, which is responsible for the spots. In the absence of this gene (or if it is hidden), the fur of the individual is one color. Despite the fact that this is a less popular color variant among prospective owners, we also hold them in high regard. The majority of solids are free of the defects that the merle gene can bring to the breed, their highly pigmented fur and different genetic makeup make them resistant and healthy. The solids are indispensable for the survival of the breed, without them the merle gene “gets loose”, thereby inheriting vision and hearing disorders. There is no leopard without Solid.

We love solids!
