One of the farm dogs on our visit is a Catahoula Cur or a Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog. The Catahoula is believed to be the first dog breed developed in North America. The breed is sometimes referred to as the "Catahoula Hound" or "Catahoula Leopard Hound", although it is not a true hound, but a cur. It is also called the "Catahoula Hog Dog", reflecting its traditional use in hunting wild boar.
“Catty” is very friendly and quite active. It was hard to catch him standing still, so I resorted to catching him on the run. This time with all four feet off the ground.
In the best light…
