I posted this in the newly create bayou forum and almost nobody had any experiences to post about. Anybody have a Catahoula hound? any pointers on picking a good dog? what are any of it genetic flaws? and how good are they in learning and training? I found one of these as 6month old in local shelter. The dog is a healthy male that was abandon into the shelter care due to the family moving back to Chile. I'm thinking about getting.
