our little dog is home!

El Dorado's Clementine aka 'principessa' went to California earlier this week and we are sooo happy to have her back home - she went down to be meet Tasso's Joaquin a beautiful working dog to be bred - We are very excited for this litter the pups they due around June 1st !!

for folks into Catahoulas here's some info on Joaquin:

Joaquin is a wonderful large male with numerous red spots and patches and two cracked blue eyes. He has a sweet disposition, except with hogs. His sire is my Grand Champion hog dog, Hebert. He has been started on hogs and cows and is doing well. He has completed BAER testing with hearing in both ears. He has completed PennHIP testing with a diffraction index of .35/.35. This places him at the 90th percentile of the 144 Catahoulas that have been tested. The median for all Catahoulas tested is .57. He has passed OFA with a rating of "Excellent".
He passed CERF testing with no eye abnormalities.
