Sadie was my first catahoula. Steve Young and I got her in 1996 and she soon became my dog to train. She was my foundation catahoula and one of the most well-put-together catahoulas I have seen. It took her a little over one year to get her first conformation championship with NALC, which is very difficult. Sadie has a 1st place and a High Point or Reserve in every NALC working event except Treeing demonstrating what an amazing and versatile dog she was. Sadie was a very focused dog and was known to bay a still hog for five minutes in her day. She is hip certified (PennHIP & OFA) and BAER and CERF tested. Sadie lived to an amazing 17 + years of age.
