A Catahoula is “Sold” when money changes hands & the check clears the bank.
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 selects 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.
The old true saying among cowboys about a person “going to buy” versus a sale is that “MONEY TALKS AND B.S. WALKS”.
