Thank you for visiting River Bottom Kennels. We raise Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dogs, South African Boerboels, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, and French Bulldogs. Some of our dogs are for cattle work on the ranch and hunting hogs when needed. Others help protect our home and livestock such as the Boerboels and Anatolians. Others are part of our competition and show team.
Our breeding program focuses on producing dogs with a strong cow herding instinct that will also hunt hogs and be a multi-purpose dog for your home, family and ranch/farm. Our stud dogs and females "dual purpose". They are out of stock that is strong on both cows and hogs.
Breed soundness is important to the longevity of the Catahoula Breed. With this in mind we work and breed some non-merle dogs. These "plain" dogs are important to every breeding program. Click on the Links page for sources of additional information.
Our sire and dams are of good comformation with sweet temperments. We do not purposely breed for particular coat or eye color. (Although I will admit to having a fondness for cracked eyes.) We strive to breed for a balance of size, strength, endurance, and "cow sense".
"Lord, may my grass grow tall and the hogs be plentiful, but not in my hayfield!" -- the Hog Hunting Cowman.
"Lord, bless our dogs whereever they may go. Enable the dogs and their work to be a blessing to each person they contact be it Your will. Amen." -- the Baniks
