Catahoula Leopard Dogs earned their reputation as excellent working dogs in the 17th century. Spanish settlers used the breed to herd wild hogs from the forest. The dogs would not only herd the hogs; they would pick fights with the hogs. Consequently, the hogs would squeal and attract the attention of more hogs. Still, the Catahoulas did not back down. They would run into the owner's pin and the pigs would follow. The owners would then lock the gates and trap the hogs. So, Catahoulas earned the settlers‚ respect.
