    My neighbor two houses down raises hunting dogs. I was down there helping him catch some half grown pigs, and asked about the dogs he had. He said he was expecting some pups soon and would let me know. Anyway 4 months later he came by and said he had a female pup that he needed to find a home for (she wasn't showing the hunting instinct). I went down to look at her and he said I could have her for free. She looks like old yella (from the movie) with hound dog ears. She will hunt, just a slow learner.
    Anyway I named her Yella. I've had her for a month and she sleeps in her crate, is potty trained, gets along awesome with the critters, and follows me around everywhere. She's all about her doggie toys. Working on the chicken harassing but for a pup she's doing good.
    She's a Plott Catahoula cross.
    I'd post a pic. but apparently my computer hates me right now. [​IMG]
    I've always wanted a Plott hound [​IMG]

    Congratulations!!!!

    She will be your bestfriend, what a great cross. Get your obedience training going, she should be good at it. Read up on both breeds that she comes from, they are very smart. You can train her for just about anything. I had one before and she was one of my personal protection dogs. Boy I miss her that was many years ago. Don't be too shocked if she gets very protective of you.

    This is Yella. The day we got her.
    Thanks FlaRocky. I've always wanted either a plott or a catahoula, and now I have both.
    As far as the obedience training she is doing great. She's sleeping at my feet right now, she never leaves my side. [​IMG] [​IMG]
