Is the Catahoula Leopard Dog / Plott Mix right for you?

Species group:

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Catahoula Leopard Dog / Plott Mix is a cross between a pure Catahoula and a pure Plott, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. While this mix certainly isn't common, it was probably inevitable that breeders would occasionally cross these two fine hog-hunting dogs together.

Appearance / health:
The appearance of the Catahoula Leopard Dog / Plott Mix can vary, but expect a muscular and impressive animal that looks suitable for its primary purpose-- the pursuit of hogs and boar.

Behavior / temperament:
The theory may be that two fine hog-hunting breeds crossed together will create an exceptional animal. However, sometimes these experiments backfire, and there is no guarantee that the hybrid will be as good or better than either the Catahoula or the Plott purebreed. If you would be disappointed if the mix was only a family companion and not a good hog dog, then you should choose one of the pure breeds.
