Buyers and their Pups

Bosco X Fleet Pup home in California after great 17 hour trip

Jul 2 2015






You had a long wait until the right pup arrived for you.  I truly respect and value your working with us in total gentleman’s manners of good faith through the long wait to get your special pup. That kind of mutual respect and kindness is unfortunately becoming more rare these days. 

It was our pleasure to visit with you and daughter, Shea.  Always a reward to meet good folks. 

Laugh and be well also.

Just got home Doc. I must say, it was well worth the wait. Not only for the pup. Also to meet you and Maria.  Myself and Shea really enjoyed our visit with you all. We did a 17 hour push the first day and made it from Lubbock to Bakersfield. The pup was unreal!!! Never made a peep.  

What a great personality she has. Just how you described her. Athletic, intelligent ball of energy!

She took to our other hound like they have known each other for ever. Thanks again I will certainly keep in touch.

Be well.

                      "Adelle" holds her own... no back down. 




I literly laughed out loud with a smile of joy as I opened your wonderful picture of “Adelle” and her big brother.
It was fun seeing our Bosco X Fleet pup pick you out as her person.  You looked at other good pups, but "Adelle" would not leave you alone until you picked her out.   
Many thanks for sharing.  We really appreciate it.

"Gunner is an amazing family dog"

Jun 8 2015

As we say at Rancho Santiago, our Catahoulas love their family and will protect themselves, their property, their people and their kids.  

This 8 month old, sixty seven pound, "Gunner" pup is laying down the LAW to an intruder. 




Hi Jon and family,
We greatly appreciate the up date on “Gunner”.
These are great pictures of  your Clyde X Blue Eyes puppy.
We will share your opinions, experiences and pictures with the Catahoula world via the ranch web site. 
Many thanks.

Dr. Gamble,
It's been about 8 months since Gunner was born and I couldn't be more impressed with the line of Catahoulas you've developed.  Gunner is an amazing family dog and has become best friends with my son (7) and my daughter (5).  His natural hunting instinct is remarkable and has taken very little effort to develop.  I weighed him last week and he tipped the scale at 67 lbs!  This dude is a beast and is solid muscle.  He has the perfect head, a deep chest and broad shoulders.  I attached a few pics.  Some are a few months old and the one of him on the other side of the door is recent.  I can't thank you enough for your dedication to your dog's and what it has done for me and my family.
