How to Purchase your Rancho Santiago Catahoula.


"Sold" v.s "Choice"

A Catahoula is "Sold" when money changes hands & the check clears the bank.  Please do not just dream about your pup and not send money & then it gets sold while you wait & dream about your pup......  sadly, it happens!

Rancho Santiago Catahoulas is a labor of love of the breed and a business.  If a buyer says they want or "choose" a pup and they do not send the money, that is NOT A SALE.

If a buyer sends their payment for a pup, it is sold to that buyer.  Rancho Santiago will not sell your pup to someone else who offers a higher price. That just is not right. "Do unto others... " is the ancient saying. A Deal is a deal.

The rather crude, but the old true saying among cowboys about a person "going to buy" versus a sale is that "MONEY TALKS AND B.S. WALKS".

    How to Reserve Your Rancho Santiago Catahoula Pup

Conact the Rancho Santiago Office by email at to receive information concerning how to make your puppy reservation.

Rancho Santiago’s buyer “Reservation Waiting List” system is an effort to be fair to our buyers. Buyers paying to resere their pup choice from a litter to make sure they get to choose their puppy from a litter before that litter sells out. 

Order of a buyer's pick from a litter is made in the order of the date your payment is received in the ranch office. 

Some buyers prefer to make no reservation & take their chances on a litter not being all sold out.  Pups not reserved are for sale to the public on a first come and first buy basis.

Upon request, payment options & suggestions are sent to a potential buyer by email.  Buyers making a full payment choose from a litter before buyers making ½ payment. Full payment needs to be made before picking up your pup.  The full base payment at this time is $850.00...... rare red leopards more expensive. 


 When a litter arrives, if the puppy you dream about is not in that litter, you may elect to pass to the next available litter to make your puppy choice. Puppies not chosen will be offered to the public on a first come first served basis.

After weaning at 5+ weeks and passing a pup Veterinarian health certification the pups in the litter are ready to be picked. We notify the #1reserved buyer to select or pass their pup choice to the next litter.  The next buyer listed by date of receipt of payment moves into the selection position to make their choice... this process continues down the reservation list by date of receipt of payment.
