Catahoula Leopard Dog-- or as we call them in Louisiana, Catahoula Curr. state dog of Louisiana. These dogs are so smart! And they are just great on a farm. They can round up cattle or horses and still make a fine pet.
Catahoula leopard dog is the only surviving dog to have been bred by Native Americans. A partial list of his supposed ancestors includes the Mexican Xoloitzculntli, the Peruvian Inca Orchid, the American dingo, and the red wolf. by MistyLane
