The Catahoula Bulldog is a multipurpose hybrid breed of dog created by crossing the Catahoula Leopard Dog and American Bulldog. They originated around the early 1900s for hunting, working stock and protection. The Catahoula Bulldog was first officially registered in 1968 by the Animal Research Foundation. These dogs are not meant to replace, change or harm either breed, but to create a hybrid of multipurpose by bringing together the best attributes of each.

They are protective, loyal companions and working partners with a high eagerness to please. They are an animated and personable dog, often quite vocal.
