Catahoula Bulldog information

I thought I would help shed some light on the Catahoula Bulldog discussion. They are a cross between the Catahoula Leopard and the American Bulldog. Some people cross the Pitbull with catahoula for a very gritty catch dog but according to the registries the catbull is only recognized when crossed with Ambulls. Catahaoula Bulldogs have been recognized for over 100 years. They make excellent working dogs and family companions. Here is the breed standard for anyone interested in learning a little more....

Background: The Catahoula Bulldog originated over 100 years ago in America. The Catahoula Bulldog is created from a direct cross between two specific and high quality breeds: the Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog and the American Bulldog, with the selection of the breeding parents being dependent upon desired working ability, rather than appearance. The Catahoula Bulldog is the result of combining a perfectly suited breed, the Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog, with another well suited breed, the American Bulldog, to gain certain characteristics that you may not get by leaving the two separate. They were originally popular in the southern United States for their strong working abilities for tasks including but not limited to hunting, working stock, protection, tracking, as well as being a devoted companion.

General Description: The Catahoula Bulldog is a medium to large sized dog that is an athletic, non-bulky, free breathing, and versatile working dog. They are protective, loyal companions and working partners with a high eagerness to please. They are an animated and personable dog, sometimes being very vocal. Aloofness with strangers is acceptable. Outright aggressiveness to people or other animals unless provoked is unacceptable. Generally the Catahoula Bulldog possesses the intelligence, endurance, and prey drive of the Catahoula, while being slightly heavier bodied with a robust skull, strong jaw, and mild temperament. The Catahoula Bulldog may be 50% Catahoula Leopard Dog and 50% American Bulldog in a first generation cross, with succeeding generation crosses of up to 75%-25% mix in either direction.

General Appearance: The Catahoula Bulldog should generate the impression of great strength, agility, endurance and exhibit a well-knit, sturdy, compact frame with the absence of excessive bulk. Males are characteristically larger, heavier boned and more masculine than females. The Catahoula Bulldog has a short smooth coat which comes in a wide variety of colors ranging from any solid, leopard, merle, patched, brindle, or any combination of these. Eyes can be any color or combination of colors (cracked or marbled) in one or both eyes. Tails can be long, cropped, or naturally bobbed in any length. They are medium to large sized dogs, weight always being proportionate to the body, and should not be less than 18 inches at the withers.

The Catahoula Bulldog is categorized in three types for judging purposes:
75/25 Type describes 75% Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog and 25% American Bulldog
50/50 Type describes 50% Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog and 50% American Bulldog.
25/75 Type describes 25% Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog and 75% American Bulldog. This does not limit a cross to these exact percentages, and any variation is acceptable so long as it does not exceed crosses of up to 75%-25% mix in either direction to insure preservation of both breed traits to be apparent. The main characteristics of each individual dog will differ, but may generally be determined by what percentage is higher, most often the differences being in body type or size, but there are also other subtle differences.

Disqualifications: Dogs that are deaf or blind. Males without two testicles clearly descended due to a medical or genetic condition. Dogs with retina deformations and or microphthalmia.

NOTES:1. Males or females can be altered and this should not be considered a fault or reason for disqualification.
2. When showing teeth in the ring a handler can ask if he/she can show them to the judge to prevent any unsafe occurrence.
3. Owner/handler should know how to properly restrain the dog with expert showmanship while being inspected by the judge.
4. Scars on the dog should not be considered a fault, as this is a working breed.


*****It did not let me post the entire standard for each type (25/75 50/50 & 75/25) b/c it is too long for this thread you can go to www.merlebulldogsregistry.org to see the entire standard.******** other registries that recognize the CatBull are ABRA WBA CKC. MBR will be the first to hold confirmation shows and trials for the CatBull.

So only a cur is acceptable as is cat bull.. . The only American bulldog strain not a mutt is original Scott line as they were simply the freaky big dogs straight from Colby..
