Black Mouth Cur?

Postby Black and Good » Wed Apr 10, 2013 8:49 am

Hey everyone,Does anyone have or know much about this breed of dog? I was thinking of getting one, I was wanting to make it an Antler dog as well as a bloodtracking dog (Bow shot deer). And possible hunt some Squirrel? I've been told they are the most versitle dog breed there is?? My cows are so gentle I can't see me using it for herding at all. B&G :tiphat:

My father-in-law used to have one, and it was a super strong, aggressive, yet obedient to him. great to hunt with.
Here is some info on that breed : http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/blackmouthcur.htm

we've had alot of these dogs over the years. very loyal and gritty. they will catch anything that runs from them. we used them for yard dogs and to catch cows and hogs. I don't know if you could get one to herd or not. they make great trackers(deer) and have seen them catch a wounded deer and kill it. they are great dogs and I would have one now but we have a couple of yard/barn cats and they DO NOT PLAY WELL TOGETHER.

no i don't think it would be a problem finding them. the problem would be getting it back from them before the ate it. they will eat anything.

Not sure about the Black Mouth Cur, but I squirrel and coon hunted with Mountain Curs for years. Once you hunt behind a cur dog you wont go back to a hound. They are smart and quick learners, not hard headed like a hound. My curs would hunt squirrel during the day and coon at night. The only thing I found with most Curs is that they dont bark on the track. Only at the tree.

personal preference- I myself prefer gyps. they are a little smaller, better tempered, and don't pisz on everything and my experence the gyps bond better with male handlers

tell the owner not too feed them tell you get there to pick one out. use a couple of alum pie pans an put the food in it. it will slide around on the floor the smartest one will use his paw to hold the pan and eat. I've seen it done by an oldtimer years ago. He was always wanting the most aggressive puppy so its all a matter of preference.
