The Catahoula Bulldog is one of the mixed breeds that was developed by crossing the American Bulldog and the Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog, and got the name Catahoula Bulldog.
Some believe this bulldog breed has existed for more than 100 years. This breed has spent most of its time in the southern states of America.
Because the Catahoula Bulldog is very active and has a protective nature, they were very good watchdogs. They had the ability to identify suspicious intruders, and they had hunting ability as well.
Due to their strong hunting ability, this bulldog breed became popular among the local ranchers. And they used to use this to catch bears.
People in the southern United States used to keep this Catahoula Bulldog as a watchdog or guard dog in their homes to protect their property.
The Registry of bulldog breeds was started in 1951 by Tom Stodghill, who was the founder of the Animal Research Foundation.
First official recognition for crossbreeding the Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog with the American Bulldog was given to a Texas base breeder, Bart Perry, in 1968, by the Animal Research Foundation.
