The Catahoula cur or Louisiana Catahoula leopard dog is an American dog breed. It is named after Catahoula Parish in the state of Louisiana in the United States. Of remaining dog breeds, the Catahoula is believed to have occupied North America the longest, aside from the dogs descended from Native American-created breeds. The breed is sometimes referred to as the "Catahoula Hound" or "Catahoula Leopard Hound", as 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.

A friend of mine adopted a Catahoula out of New Orleans and named her Vivienne. She's the most ridiculously well behaved dog ever. In fact, I'm certain if she ever saw the ants in the pants way my two act, she'd tsk-tsk aloud.

Heeeey, guess what!

Meet Trinity, one of a litter of 2 month old catahoula mixes currently residing in the Forsyth County Animal Shelter! Someone be a good neighbor and pop over to 5570 Sturmer Park Circle to get her before the local wild boar population gets out-of-hand.
