Aden's Red Opie came to Rancho Santiago

                                  

                                   Aden's Red Opie

            Plan is to breed Opie starting in new year 2017

Opie is developing into a great dog... fun, smart, gritty, inventive, great conformation, super old style foundation boxy type head.... and he has good common sense because Maria is definitely his favorite person in the world.

Opie is responsive and works great for Dr. Jim,       however, Red Opie LOVES his Maria. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                

Our Marine Corps son, pilot Captain Chris, was home with his son, Ayan.  "Opie" and Ayan ran and played and played. Tough dog with that special great Catahoula kid loving protecting personality.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

                     

                                                         

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 Opie is one of our two gritty alert security Catahoulas at our home.      Opie amazes us with his noticible gear down shift of mood when he is around a child. On his own Opie naturally becomes very slow, quiet and soft in nature around a child.  Here is Opie & our Great grand daughter at Christmas 2016.

To acquire "Opie" for Rancho Santiago's breeding program we went back to the old foundation blood lines of the grandparents and great grandparents of our line of Catahoulas who decended from Mr. Aden's southern Mississippi Catahoulas. Those great Catahoulas are the genetic base blood of Rancho Santiago's top of the breed Catahoula Leopard dogs. We brought back to Texas Red Opie, Ida Red and Red Magnolia for our breeding program. 

                 Rancho Santiago keeps it foundation genitics!
