Arrival Story: Finnley was adopted at a shelter by another family who really wanted a Blue Heeler. She was merled and the shelter mistakenly determined she was part Australian Shepherd so they decided to get her. They quickly found a Blue Heeler puppy and advertised Finnley (Charlie then) on ebay pets. We found her then gradually tried to determine her actual lineage. We discovered the Catahoula Leopard Dog and every breed characteristic fits. We believe her to be a double merle Catahoula. She has glass eyes and does not seem to be hearing or vision impaired. It's possible she is maixed with something but with the double merle traits that narrows the possibilites. She is a family pet so it doesn't really matter!
