Welcome to the website of Currant Catahoulas, the leading breeder of quality Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dogs within Australia. We are certified breeders with the National Association of Louisiana Catahoulas (NALC) and breed the Catahoula because we love them and believe they are one of the best breeds of dog in the world. Our main aim is to increase awareness and knowledge throughout Australia of this wonderful breed and to establish Australia’s future of high quality Catahoulas.
Although well recognised in other parts of the world, particularly the United States of America, Catahoulas are still new to Australia with no more than a suspected 300-500 existing between Australia and New Zealand. Because of this many Australian’s are not aware of the versatility of Catahoulas such as the fact that they have long been used to work cattle and hunt animals such as pigs, deer, raccoons and squirrels and some are expert climbers. (No joke!).
This website includes news and information about the breed and what they are used for. It also includes lots of information about us, our current and upcoming litters and a section of relevant resources and links for you to choose from should you choose. Please check out our rescue section to help us place rescued Catahoulas in to loving homes, and our lost and found section to reunite owners with their treasured dog. Enjoy!

Please keep the residents of Northern Queensland in your thoughts and prayers for the next 48 hours. Cyclone Yasi, a Category 5 cyclone that is said to be the most threatening cyclone in Australia since 1918 and also said to rival Hurricane Katrina, is due to cross the coast in approximately 6 hours time. It is 500km wide with a 100km wide eye and winds expected around 300km/hr. After the recent flooding in Queensland, Cyclone Anthony a couple of days ago, and now Cyclone Yasi, Queensland residents are one tough bunch. Please keep Northern Queensland in your thoughts and prayers tonight.
(We are on the northern end of the Gold Coast in South-east Queensland and have not been affected by any of these three events. Thankyou so much to all of our Catahoula friends for your concern).
