These are some of the Catahoula sites I researched before getting Baybe. They are all very, very helpful. You will find that many Catahoula sites will recommend euthanizing deaf pups, like Don Abney's website, however, I personally am thankful Baybe's breeder allowed me to take her into my home and become a wonderful part of my life. I am also grateful that her breeder did not let her go without educating me about the breed and allowing me to make an informed decision.
