Breeding Plans

 We wish we could tell a prospective buyer when a new litter will arrive. There is no way Rancho Santiago Catahoulas can tell a buyer when the next planned litter will be available for sale for several reasons that are out of our control:

 

  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 one of our top quality bitches is planned by Rancho Santiago.

  3. After the breeding, there is a thirty-day wait to see if there was conception... because every breeding is not successful.

  4. After conception, 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 and certifies each pup’s normal growth, health, hearing, and eyesight at six weeks of age.

  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 is made in the order of the date of receipt of payment to reserve of a pup from a litter. Puppies not reserved are offered to buyers 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… it all depends on the bitch’s heat cycle and conception.

Dr. Jim,  

 

 

 

 

 These "3 look outs" litter sold quickly.

          Want to reserve your puppy from a specific

               breeding pair or the "next avaliable litter"? 

                              Here is how to do it.

1. We will breed a bitch to our choice of stud dog, either Bosco or Clyde, 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. If you prefer to reserve a pup from the next available Rancho Santiago litter you may reserve a pup without choosing a specific breeding. This is the fastest method of getting a puppy.  Date of receipt of payment puts you on the next litter whelped listing. 

4. Pup price is listed with breeding pair.

5. How to make payment method information is emailed 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.

RESERVATION DEPOSIT PAID FOR A PUP IS NOT REFUNDABLE!

  3. After the breeder's choice, the first buyer listed on the reserved litter list by date of receipt of payment then chooses their pup male or female, from the litter at 4 weeks of age. Then #2 chooses etc.     

 4. A buyer making a full payment reservation selects their choice of a pup before a buyer paying a 1/2 deposit to reserve a pup.

 5. When a Buyer elects to move their choice to another litter that choice from that next litter is in the order of the date their payment was received. 

 6. Puppy reservation deposits are not refundable.

 C;yde and Ally love their families and the kids.  They are also tough family, home and kid protectors.

 Pup Price: $900.00 total.                                (Total price includes 50.00 Vet. health inspection fee & health cetrificate.)

(Red leopards $1,250.00 and up)

Current information to pup buyers:
We have invested more than $2,000 in vet care for Ally since she lost her last litter of 14 pups last year from snake bite. At this time, Ally is looking great, active, eating healthy, bright eyed and happy.  Last week our Veterinarian told us “she may be able to conceive puppies or she may not be able to produce puppies”.  
 
We did not find that news of “breed Ally next time she comes into heat and see what happens” very comforting, but at least there appears a chance that she can produce more of her magnificent pups with our Clyde stud Catahoula.
 
Ally will be bed to Clyde on her next heat cycle. ALLY IS VERY HEALTHY AND HAPPY!
 
As a back up to our breeding program, we have purchased a two year old daughter of Ally’s.

       A buyer or seller does not want to get bit on the butt. 

    Rancho Santiago's Pup Guarntee:

The individual picture is at the top of the pup'x health certificate to ensure document accuracy. This seller’s guarantee is that the 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 before it leaves our kennel. 

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.

Please be aware that our Catahoula breeding stock is NALC registered.  Our breeding paper work will be submitted to the NALC. We cannot depend on the NALC to supply the pup papers in a timely manner.  October 19th we received litter papers that we had been submitted to the NALC 11 months ago with another set of litter papers we submitted 4 months previously!  

 

 

We offer our buyers the same guarantee offered to us when we buy a Catahoula.

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     

                  

 

 

Rancho Santiago is a NALC Certified Breeder.  

All of our breeding stock is NALC registered.  

All Pups are elgible for registration with the NALC.

Please be aware that our Catahoula breeding stock is NALC registered.  Our breeding paper work will be submitted to the NALC. We cannot depend on the NALC to return the pup litter papers in a timely manner.  October 19th we received litter papers that we had been submitted to the NALC 11 months ago with another set of litter papers we submitted 4 months previously!  

     When the NALC sends papers to Rancho Santiago Catahoulas we will forward the paper to you.

*** NOTE: it often takes many months to receive a response or paper work from the National Association of Louisiana Catahoulas to register a pup ! IT TOOK ONE YEAR FOR US TO GET OUR SIRE "BOSCO'S" PAPERS!

    Care of Your New Catahoula Puppy
 
 
                              
                             Rancho Santiago's great Catahoula Genetics 
                 plus the best food build bone, muscle and health
 
Food:
 
We experience excellent results using this “Ultra 24” Milk Replacer purchased at Gebos. Flood the dog kibbles in the liquid milk replacer and feed the pup all it can eat of Purina Puppy Chow in a 24 hour period Proper feeding is super important for the pup’s growth & development.  Milk supplement price at the ranch is $35.00 per sack (we haul it 170 miles) or at Gebo's for around $28.00. We will be glad to sell you a sack or two if it will make getting the supplement more convenient for you.
 
Rancho Santiago feeds PURINA CHOW dog food & PURINA CHOW PUPPY FOOD. WE are members of the Purina Dog Food Pro Plan.
 
Dr. Jim recently saw a new dog food brand on TV touting organic vegetables, alvacado and dried blue berries in their dog food ... well heck! ... dogs are carnivores not blue berry eaters, what a scam. A lot of dog food is sold on the basis of appealing to the owners emotions and not to its nutritional value to dogs. .
 
Water & Housing:
 
Keep fresh clean water available at all times for the pup. Pups need protection from the cold or overly hot weather. These baby pups need careful care as does any baby.
 
Veterinarian Care & Vaccinations: *** Always follow your local vet’s recommendations for your area!
 
Your pup has been dewormed using Panacur, 1/2 cc for 3 consecutive days. Ask your vet. when it will need deworming again.
 
We do not endorse the use of ivomec for deworming dogs because if the dosage is not absolutely correct according to the dog’s weight then liver and kidney damage may occur.
 
We vaccinate for “Parvo” at 5 weeks of age.
 
The pup will need revaccinated for both “Distemper & Parvo” at 8 weeks of age. Check with the veterinarian in your area for a schedule of vaccinations. For our area it is recommended to vacc. for Parvo at 5 weeks, Distemper & Parvo at 8 weeks of age and at 11 weeks, 14 weeks, & 17  weeks. Ask yor vet.about a rabies vaccination.

Dr. Jim's says "it is not the dog's coat color or eye color that is most important ... it is the Catahoula's work performance and personality ... "a good reliable working dog is always the right color'."

Our carefully bred line of Catahoulas are top of the line reliable, hog & big game hunting, calttle working, home protection and companion dogs!

Due to health reasons, I am selling my personal protection bulldog used in hog hunting.  

          

 

Speck's job is to walk with me and take care of a fast developing dangerous situation if a crisis pops up during a hog hunt. Since my beard and hair turned grey and time flew by as I moved past my 70th birthday several years ago I do not run as quite as fast as I did. 

 

It is Speck's job to say with me on a leash as we follow the Catahoulas running a hog, catching a hog and hold it  as I work my way over to where the hog hs been shut down... we want all of our Catahoula adult hunters catch.

If some unpredictable crisis happens.... like a boar geting loose & charging me... all I have to do is turn Speck loose.  Without hesitation Speck will attack the boar, take hold and will not turn loose while I move to safety.  

THANKS SPECK for the fun, good times and safety.

Sometimes a breeder / hunter has to do what a hog hunter has to do…. even if it is done very reluctantly so Speck is for sale for another hunter to enjoy.

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 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.

 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.
