"Augen, pronounced Owe-gen, which is German for "eyes", is a Catahoula Leopard Dog / Whippet mix and was 4 years old at the time of the picture. Adopted from a shelter for being ’too energetic around their 3-year-old daughter’, he is now my therapy dog and goes to nursing homes and hospitals with me."Photo courtesy of Triple "L" Dog Training
The Catahoula Whippet is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Whippet and the Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
