Buyers and their Pups

"Gunner is an amazing family dog"


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.

"Our farm's Greatest dog we have ever owned- that is saying a LOT!"













Hi Toni and family, 

We remember you good folks and your pup. We would love to have another of our Catahoulas in your care. 

The Elvis X Blue Eyes litter is sold out.  The Bosco X Fleet Litter of 4 females may or may not be taken by the “next litter” reservation buyers... 4 nice leopard females. 

However, we have other litters coming fairly soon.  Big Joe (son of Bosco) X Julia and maybe our Ally conceived to Elvis (a long shot situation).

When you know you want a pup the sooner your payment arrives the earlier your choice from a litter by date of payment will secure your place on the puppy reservation list.

You saying this is the “Greatest dog we ever owned-that is saying a LOT!” brings smiles to our faces.  As you know we take great pride in the quality of our wonderful Catahoulas.

Sargent Matt & his new Rancho Santiago Pup in California


Thanks Mr James, hes turning out to be a great dog, already knows his name and is 15 lbs, not to mention he gets along great with my other male.

Oh yea, he got hs first wiff of a mountain lion 2 days ago when myself and my cousin Jake had our dogs out.The cat was I would say 150 lbs and healthy, he led our dogs on a run but shook them off.I guess that's why they call them catty.

Mr Bobby is an awesome man I felt like I had known him for a long time.You folks have been really nice to me and I wont forget this.

I plan on telling my dog friends of your wonderful dogs and Im seriously thinking about a mule.

I hope next time im that way I can stay a bit longer and get to visit with you and yours.

Thanks again you and Mr Bobby are true gentlemen and that's hard to come by these days.

Sincerely your friend, Matt Machet


Really appreciate the note.  What an adventure for a young pup.
Please send us a picture or you two for the web site.
