Louisiana Catahoula Puppies for Sale Little Ann and Luke born August 15

We got 3 males and 2 females about 6 weeks as of this published post and they are ready to ship out when you are ready to have them.

Below is da runt female who will make up for her size in personality!

And below we have a solid blue leopard with double glass eyes,
this is rare among Catahoulas.

I am getting a lot of people asking about big headed dogs, in that some dogs have a greyhound heads and that is part of the breed, but my blood line produces a wide body conformation and head
as you can see below in Austin's male. 
 And as you can see below, his markings are superb, with white tip tail and toes, tan trim, and blue leopard with grey patches. 
If you would like to talk about these pups, I can be reached by cell phone at 337 298 2630.
If I don't answer, maybe I am driving the boat as you can see below, and you can leave me a message or text. I operate de la Houssaye's Swamp Tours at Lake Martin near Lafayette, La.

I am having some camera issues, so I may be a few days before I can update these photos, but I will get more individual shots in here ASAP.

In the mean time here is the word from da puppies: "Help! Dis man has us in dis kennel ALL night, so the owls don't eat us!"

And... as you can see above and below: "It is very lonely in here!"

And... "We are only allowed out 3 or 4 times a day because he says he doesn't want us to get run over by big truck tires on da driveway and maybe we get out once at night, IF WE ARE LUCKY!"
"Please rescue us from dis very bad man who sells puppies and and only feeds us like 3 or 4 times a day if we are lucky. Please take us to YOUR  house so there is less competition for food and we can eat more human table scraps left-overs and sit on your lap ALL DAY."

Catahoula puppies for sale - Coco and Luke born September 1, 2015

Coco and Luke have done it again and made a great litter of 5

3 males with blue leopard patches

and 2 red leopard females

and one of these girls is the cutest runt ever as you can see below

And here is another passing shot of the stud, Luke Skywalker

If you would like to discuss owning a Catahoula if you have never owned one before, I am here to to warn you up front, they are not for everybody. We can talk about what you need to understand to acquire and maintain one, and I can be reached by cell phone at 337 298 2630. I am very careful who I place my dogs with and... with the right people I am getting rave reviews about how smart, gritty, and game ready to hunt OR be your loyal companion my dogs can be.

As you can see below, Luke is a big headed, well built grandson of Patch who always made great pups.

It is so nice to hear everyone who bought a dog a year ago, or 10 years ago coming back and saying the same thing: "You are right Marcus, these dogs are a lot smarter than I imagined a dog could be!"

Sally called from San Diego recently regarding the 2 sisters she bought for security, and declared: "They are not even a year old and they can open every door in the house!

Coco and Luke's puppies born 2/15/2015

The funny thing about dealing with the public is people believe I 'need' to sell these puppies and therefore the price must go down over time, right? Well if I was "trying" to sell them asap I would not be qualifying buyers, I would just hand over a puppy as soon as the first buyer shows up with money. Now one of the reasons I don't put a price on my web page is: people think there is a generic price on puppies.   

If it is real easy to sell these pups with the blue eyes, shouldn't those be a higher price than the ones with the brown eyes? Supply and demand.

And if  the spotted dogs are easier to sell then solid color, shouldn't them leopard markings fetch a higher price as well as the blue eyes? Seems logical to me!

I got blue eyed, leopards, and male and females of each but I am not putting up pictures of every dog in my yard. If you want to see everything I got, YOU NEED TO COME TO MY HOUSE!

Now part of why I don't put pictures of ALL my dogs is: as you can see in the photo below, oftentimes Catahoulas are very camera shy.
The reason they are camera shy is: well bred Catahoulas are often people shy.

To overcome that this breed needs to be socialized, and as you can see in the photo above and below I haul my pups around in boats and trucks early on as much as possible.

  So if you were hoping the price will go down because "I need to get rid of em" please consider that not only am I feeding, watering, and vacineating, I am spending quality time with my pups.

All that and I am preparing them to be ready to work when they get there. These dogs do not make good pets for most people because people are superficial in shopping for color, and are not knowledgeable about what these dogs were bred to do: work!

If you think you are gonna over ride genetics by training them to be a pet, GET REAL! You are not gonna MAKE them into something they were not bred to be in the first place!

Now on the other side, if they weren't bred to work or hunt in the first place you ain't gonna train them to do that either!

How about this: someone called today who wanted me to train his dog. I asked him;"train him to do what?" And his reply: "to do nothing in particular", to which I replied; "And what makes you think you have to train him to DO THAT?"

I MAY BE A COMEDIAN, but I did not make this up.

I am asking 700 dollars for these pups, and the price WILL GO UP,  as I invest more into them.

But you are welcome to call me and make me an offer if you like or just want to inquire about the cheaper, more well suited to be pet variety I also have for sale.

I do not sell dogs by email, OR TEXT, but you can call me at 337 298 2630, and I and the pups are in Lafayette if you are serious about ACTUALLY SEEING what I have for sale.

Tri-colored Catahoula Puppies out of Coco and Luke

 As you can see both Luke and Coco are camera shy , but not around cows or hogs!
Anyway that is a big misconception about Catahoulas: they are shy

 These puppies are NOT shy...

 As you can see, they are very engaging...

Well built and healthy

typical of a catahoula... all in your feet!

 And ready to take a stand to be your best friend...

 Raised up among other great dogs, and decended from generation after generation of champions...

What color? blue leopard, tri-colored, and one gun metal grey, all total 5 females in this litter.

Yes, they got blue eyes, what else you want to know? Ohhh how much?

OK, make me an offer, because the price is irrelevant if you you don't know WHAT THIS IS!

The worlds most versatile working dog, and you better have a job for them if you "just want to 'make' them into a pet!"

All that being said if you want to call and make me an offer, these girls are just about to ship.

My name is Marcus de la Houssaye, and my cell phone is 337 298 2630
