Breeding Plans

We wish we could tell a prospective buyer exactly when a new litter will arrive. There is no way Rancho Santiago Catahoulas can determine when the next planned litter will be available for sale for several reasons listed below.

 

1. The time to breed is determined when the bitch’s natural hormones trigger her heat cycle. Nature makes this breeding time decision over which we have no control.

2. The selection of which of our top Catahoula stud dogs to breed one of our top quality bitches is planned by Rancho Santiago.

3. Every breeding is not successful so after  breeding there is a thirty-day wait to see if there was conception.

4. A bitch is pregnant 62-63 days before whelping (birth). At birth the puppies are closely inspected for health. Each pup’s growth and development is watched closely. Any pup with a problem is culled to keep the breed unblemished.

5. Our veterinarian examines certifies each pup’s normal growth, health, hearing, and eyesight at six weeks of age.  If a pup has a problem it is culled to protect the breed. 

6. After meeting our strict standards for quality a pup is offered for sale first to buyers who have paid for a reservation of a pup. Buyer selection of a pup from the litter is made in the order of the date of receipt of their payment. Puppies not reserved are offered to the public on a first come basis.

7. Rancho Santiago wants our buyers to be fully aware the waiting time to receive a reserved pup can often  takes up to 6 months or more.

        How to reserve your puppy from a

            Choice from a Specfic Breeding Pair

                  

1.We will breed a bitch to our choice of stud dog according to Rancho Santiago breeding plans.

2.To reserve a puppy from a future litter of your choice of breeding pair just tell us which breeding pair from which you want your pup.

3. Date of receipt of payment is the order in which a buyer reserving a pup from a specific pair is determined.

4. Pup price is listed with breeding pair.

5. How to make payment method information is emailed to a buyer upon request.

6. Order of picking your pup from a litter is always by date of receipt of payment in the ranch office.

7. When the litter arrives, if the puppy a buyer has in mind is not in that litter, they may elect to pass to that pair's next litter or move their choice to another litter.  

8. If buyer elects not to make a choice from a litter, the next buyer on the waiting list will have the opportunity to first choose from the remaining puppies. This process continues until all puppies are selected from the litter.

9. Puppies that are not chosen through buyer reservation will be offered for sale to the general public on a first come first served basis.

Pup reservation made by paying deposit for this specific pair's future litter.       

 





                                                                  

ELVIS & ALLY HAVE two of the most outstanding heads within the Catahoula breed in our humble opinion.

 

 

Elvis bred to Ally... 
do you think their pups will have drive & be gritty enough?

OH YEAH!

 

 Elvis X Ally Litter

Clyde X Ally  pups are elgible for NALC registration.

PROBLEM IS THAT THE NALC HAS NOT TRANSFERED ALLY'S OWNERSHIP TO RANCHO SANTIAGO.... IT HAS BEEN OVER ONE YEAR.  

 

 Pup Price: $900.00.                                

(Red leopards $1,250.00 and up)

Current information to pup buyers:
 
We have invested more than $5,000 in vet care for Ally since she lost her last litter of 14 pups last year due to snake bite.
 
At this time Ally is looking great, active, eating healthy, bright eyed and happy. Last week our Veterinarian told us “she should be able to conceive puppies. 
 
At least there appears a chance that she can produce more of her magnificent pups with our Clyde stud Catahoula.
 
As a back up for  our breeding program, we have purchased a two year old daughter of Ally’s named "Emma".

          Rancho Santiago's Pup Guarantee:           

                                

 

We offer our buyers more of a guarantee than we hve received when we buy a Catahoula. Actually, the Catahoula adults and pups we have purchased came without any Vet. check and zero guarantee.

Rancho Santiago's guarantee to a buyer is that their pup has passed a Veterinarian health examination at five to six weeks of age and is free of blindness, deafness, and is physically sound of health according to the Vet's evaluation before it leaves our kennel. The pup’s individual picture is at the top of the Vet's health certificate to ensure document accuracy.

The buyer or their representative should always read the Vet. Health certificate and closely inspect the individual Catahoula for soundness before leaving Rancho Santiago.

If there is concern about the health or physical soundness of a pup or adult dog, do not take possession of the dog.

After the dog passes through the Rancho Santiago gates, it no longer is under our direct supervision, care and control, therefore, we cannot continue to be responsible for that dog’s physical health, emotional state, behavior or how it responds to training.

When the buyer, their representative or transporter takes possession of the dog that person becomes responsible concerning the dog’s health, safety and well-being.

Dr. Jim

 

 

Line- Breeding  In- Breeding  Out- Breeding

 

We proudly display the NALC registration papers of our Catahoula breeding stock under the individual sire or dam's picture section on our web site for every one to read and study our Catahoulas' blood lines.  

Line-breeding is essentially breeding cousins in a planned breeding effort to produce Catahoulas with similar excellent qualities.  Strict culling is a part of this program. We line breed from time to time. 

In-breeding is brother to sister, father to daughter, son to mother is not done at Ranch Santiago.  We have no dogs or bitches with the same parents therefore we cannot in-breed and do not want to.

Out-breeding is to breed to a blood line with no relationship. We out breed from time to time. 

Our puppy’s superior performance, quality, health, drive, inborn grit & courage tells all of our Catahooulas total story ever needed. 

Dr. Jim

                                        Dr. Jim's "Speck"

 

 

 

 

 

So here is my confession of my thoughts about pit bulldogs.  I don't like Pits and think man has taken a good dog and made it into a breed too dangerous to live with...... BUT THEN I MET SPECK.  

Speck is a people loving, people friendly, happy, serious hog hunter that works well alone with me or with the pack of hunting dogs. He rides in the dog box unrestrained

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                 

Dr. Jim & Maria's 13 year old granddaughter liked to handle speck on a hunt. 

 

 

Specks red kevlar vest goes with him to his new home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

      

 Speck was bred, raised, trained and hunted by David Hise.  David is a respected long time dog breeder, trainer and hog hunter out of Roswell, NM. 

SPECK is a castrated male.  7 - 8 years old and at the top of his hunting game.  Esttamate 55-60# and STRONG!.

I ask David about the brown speckels and brown markings around his tail because those markings seemed familiar to me.  

David replied "well Speck is 1/4 German Shorthair Pointer".  I ask "so why in the world did you breed like that for?"  Without hesitation, David said "to give the blooming Pit a brain!".

Well Speck certainly has a brain that functions. He is responsive to my commands, wants to please, he is courageous, gritty and is an all around good dog guy.

Comes when called, stands still to vest and collar up and jumps into the dog box with a "load up". 

I later learned that the German Shorthair"s are known as the toughest of the bird dog breeds.  His breeding and working results make sense.

Dr. Jim   

 

 

 PERSONALITY.... GREAT.

Speck gets along with our other adult dogs and puppies. Speck does not fight with our other dogs.  He minds his own business, takes care of hunting business and does what he is told to do.    

          

                          Strong, Athletic, Smart, Gritty.

How do we get him to let go of a subdued or dead hog when his bulldog jaws are locked down on a hogs nose?..... NOT A PROBLEM.  

Dr. Jim taps him on the head with a forefinger and says "out" and Speck lets go and steps back.  YES HE DOES!

No pry sticks and wrestling around with this really good bulldog.
