Hypoallergenic No
The Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog dog is a medium to medium-large sized, short-haired, with a broad head, floppy ears small and medium enterprises, and an undocked tail set in a natural extension of the topline. The Catahoula is well muscled and powerful, but not bulky, giving the impression of agility and strength. The Catahoula is a moderate breed and should not resemble either a greyhound or a bulldog in appearance. The body is slightly longer than tall and the distance from the elbow to the ground should be equal to 50-60 percent of the dog's height from the withers to the ground. Because the breed name, many people assume that all Catahoulas have so-called brand "Leopard" and blue eyes. In fact, the breed is known for its many unusual colors and coat patterns and eye color varied. The Catahoula should be evaluated as a working dog, and exaggerations or faults polyvalent should be penalized in proportion to how much they interfere with the dog's ability to work.
Body type
Adequate provided Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog is slightly longer than tall. The topline inclines very slightly downward from the withers well developed to a new level. The back is broad and well muscled with a short, strong, slightly arched. A loin slightly longer acceptable in women. The ribs extend well back and are well sprung from the spine. The chest is deep, reaching at least to the elbows, and moderately broad. When viewed from the side, the anterior chest extends in a shallow oval front of the front legs. Tuck-up is apparent, but not exaggerated. The croup is medium to long and slightly sloping. A slightly elevated rear resulting from slightly backstretch angulation should not be too severely penalized.
The Catahoula has a single coat, short to medium length which is flat and close to the body. Texture ranges from soft and thick, without preference.

Tasty Tidbits
When trotting, the gait is smooth, fluid and effortless, showing good but not exaggerated reach front-wheel drive and powerful back. The topline remains level with only a slight flexing to indicate suppleness. Viewed from any position, legs turn neither in nor out, nor do feet cross or interfere with each other. As speed increases, feet tend to converge toward the axis of balance. Poor movement should be penalized to the extent that it reduces the ability of the Catahoula to perform the tasks it was bred to do.
