Hey everyone! I got our beautiful Clay just over a year ago from a family whose dog had a surprise pregnancy. They were giving out these pups for free as they had no financial position to take care of any so they needed immediate homing. On the advertisement it said these pups were Catahoula. We spoke briefly to the breeder when we picked him up. They were quite sheepish as they knew what they were doing could be viewed wrongly. We discussed the mother and what breed she was, in which at the time I had no idea what a Catahoula was. They mentioned they had no idea what the father was, as she only had one other pup on her farm which was a boy who was desexed. Upon bringing him home and looking up the breed we quickly came to the conclusion that he's definitely not a Leapord dog. We did not explore it much further until later when we saw striking resemblance between him and a Black Mouth Cur. Our only reservation is that we live in Australia and these dogs are native American. Other than that people honestly think he's a ridgeback. What's your thoughts?
