hi everybody, I've had my dog since she was just a tiny puppy, shes almost 2 now. I've always wondered what she is, the shelter she came from just called her labX but we recently had a DNA test done on her and found out that she is catahoula lab mix. I'd never heard of the dog before and am very interested with other peoples experiences with the breed, its a fairly rare breed i guess i hope to hear from somebody. I've done some research and everything I've learned about the breed is my MaeBee, she can climb any fence (and got kicked out of camp bow wow because of it) she is VERY energetic(her only real behavioral issue is her hyperactivity but that is easily remedied with lots of exercise) shes a great swimmer, and loves to chase rabbits. she is the most amazing dog and just the light of my world. I've never been so loved or protected. (and i do believe she would give her life to protect me) we have an incredible bond and i'd love to hear from other catahoula lovers.
