Meet "Nero," He is a Catahoula Leopard Dog. :D
He may not be much to look at...but he is the BEST dog
you could ever ask for! My hubby and I adopted him back
in march as a little 8 week old puppy. He was born on Valentine's Day. :)

He is the BEST dog when it come for going on walks, and makes
an excellent jogging companion. He is very friendly and ABSOLUTELY
LOVES to climb and run, I think he would be great for agility and flyball
if I knew how to go about teaching it to him.

He won ugliest dog runner up in a charity dog show event! :lol:

I think his best feature are his eyes, I know a lot of people try to
avoid dogs with Heterochromia eyes, but I think they are unique and
ugly and he can see just fine.

The first pic is when he was around 12 weeks, the other pic is recent.

Very neat looking dog. I have only seen one of them in my life. I dont know much about the breed.. but they seem very interesting.
Thanks! :D

This breed is not recognized by any registry.
They are the largest and most aggressive of the cattle dogs, bred
Catahoula Leopards are extremely agile and athletic, territorial, protective
of "their property". They are more primitive psychologically than most breeds
and need consistent obedience reinforcement. The owner must understand
the Alpha concept and stay in control at all times, but still be loving to the
dog. Very loyal, loving, intelligent and independent... they really think
for themselves. to handle wild cattle and hogs in the roughest, most
remote country.


..but Nero is definately not aggressive to people or animals and has never
even seen a cow! LOL! :lol:
