Meet Asher the Catahoula Leopard Dog

I brought Asher home from the Hood County Animal Shelter on January 3, 2011. He weighed a mere 4 lbs and was small enough to walk under our tiny 8lb cat Charlie. The day I went to pick him up from the shelter was the 1st day of Mr.’s week long Preaching Retreat in Fredricksberg, Texas…I had this little polka dotted cutie all to myself for 7 days!

He loves to fetch and could play ball all day. Squeaky toys are the next best thing in the world and need to be played with constantly.

He is quiet the buddy and my perfect outdoor companion to hike and explore. Easily, the best dog ever.

  1. I really like Asher, your Catahoula! I also have a lovely Houla myself, her name Sassy. She is the apple of my eye! It seems that you enjoy your Asher alot like I enjoy my Sassy. She is always willing to go for walks, play or just for me sit while she entertains me. lol

    1. Sabrina, thanks for the kind words! Asher is the best! I adopted him, knowing little to nothing about the breed but he was just what I needed! He is always game for a hike and that has been great for me to get back in shape!
