The Catahoula is bred out of the Beauceron originally. The French brought them over very early on and they were with the French settlers in the early days. I don't know if there is definitive proof, but I have some old writings alluding to the Beauce being bred with local dogs to create a hunting dog in the Louisiana Territory.

I hope it was an oops breeding. I would think anybody interested in Beaucerons is not going to intentionally breed to a GSD, but stranger things have happened.

It is sad that we have been imprinted on the mutilated (my personal opinion) look. They actually have a very sweet face with intact ears.

Like I said, it's my opinion. I don't own a beauceron but know several very well.
I do dock my terriers' tails though.

Sorry Patchon, I don't want to turn your thread into a debate!!! I would have liked to see pictures of those puppies...

i met two beaucorons at the local dog show. really nice looking and friendly dogs. i don't know why some one would want to cross the with the gsd, but if i was looking for a pup, i would certainly look at this litter, but i wouldn't do anything to contribute or encourage future breedings like this. hopefully it wasn't a planned breeding.

I dont think it was, they were charging $500 a pup.

I didnt know they came in Merle, and I also didnt know they were that rare. When I was dealing with horses for a living I knew several people who had them. Shows how much I know I guess, lol.

I used to work for a K9 secuirty company that bred their own dogs in house. They primarly crossed the beucerons with the Dobe's and the result was a Dobe on steroids. Very intimidating looking animals. They may have done some GSD crosses but I cant recall. They kept back and bred the dogs with superior working ability and intimidating looks..lol.
I agree on the ear crop too, and I double that for Dobe's. They just look so much more serious and intent with the ears done. JMO
