Coat Color Examples

In the Catahoula breed, some dogs have a "spotted-up" coat.  This unique pattern is known as Leopard in the NALC Standard.  Other breeds may have a similar coat pattern called "merle."
Please note that not all Catahoulas have leopard coats - this is what makes the breed so unique and diverse.  For example, you can see below that there is a significant difference between a solid red and a red leopard coat.  If you have any questions on how to list the colors for your dog, please call our office.
