My name is Annie. I was born on December 14, 2001. I was adopted from a shelter when I was just 7 months old. I live with two people and two cats. I am a Catahoula. What is a Catahoula you ask? We are know as the Leopard dog, with a pedigree stretching back to the Spanish explorers. The state of Louisiana is cited as the point of origin, particularly the area of Catahoula. Hence the name, Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog. In 1979, the breed was designated the state dog of Louisiana. Some of us have a thicker coat than others and some have more spots. We are known for our striking blue eyes (called \”Glass Eyes\”), but we may have other eye colors as well. I have \”Glass Eyes\” or I should say \”Glass Eye\”. I lost my left eye 3 years ago, due to Glaucoma. I have to get 3 different eye drops in my right eye every day. This helps keep the pressure down on my eye. Too much pressure gives me a headache. I get along great with just one eye. I got use to it real quick, Sometimes I turn to the left to close to things and bump my nose. I can\’t catch the frisbee as good as I once used to either. All in all, I have a good life and I love my family I live with.
