She has been a joy since the day we adopted her from the local shelter. We were told she was a chocolate lab mix but they didn't know what the other mix was. We live in New England and she was what we refer to as a Dixie dog, a dog from the south. We have since been told by several people that she is a mix of Lab and Catahoula hound. She has the beautiful amber eyes and the question mark tail of the Catahoula hound. Her coloring is dark brown like a lab but her sisters at the shelter were brindle. She is so sweet, just loves people and other dogs. She has been very trainable. She rings the bells to go outside, sits, and stays. But, she is pretty stubborn and has a mind of her own. Walking her is a challenge. She pulls like crazy. Starting formal dog training tomorrow.
