Overview
Originating in the Southern region of the United States, the Black Mouth Cur breed was developed to be an all-purpose working dog that contributed to the family. Highly regarded for their hunting skills of squirrel, raccoon, bear, boar, and mountain lion, they were also utilized for herding cattle and as guard dogs. Although the Black Mouth Cur is a fine companion, they are first and foremost a working breed.
Character
The Black Mouth Cur is muscular, well-balanced, tenacious, and courageous. This breed is built for power, speed, and agility. Black Mouth Cur's are rugged, sturdy, and relentless. They are highly proficient at swimming, tracking, treeing, and baying.
Temperament
The Black Mouth Cur is loyal, active, and even-tempered. They do best in a home with older children due to their propensity to herd. Black Mouth Cur's do well with other dogs provided they are not classified as a Toy breed. They are not recommended for homes with non-canine pets. The Black Mouth Cur is highly protective of their family, home, and territory and will fight to the death to defend those they love. This breed is exceptionally affectionate to women.
Care
The Black Mouth Cur breed requires occasional brushing with a firm bristle brush will minimize loose and dead hair. Bathe only when necessary using a mild shampoo to prevent drying of the skin. It is important to regularly check the ears for debris and remove excess hair. The nails must be regularly clipped. This breed has no known health issues.
Coat
The coat of the Black Mouth Cur is short, straight, smooth, and fine. This breed sheds little to no hair.
Training
The Black Mouth Cur is extremely sensitive and intelligent. Obedience and socialization training are recommended. However, this breed does not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Black Mouth Cur's do best with short and varied sessions to prevent boredom. Training must be done with fairness, respect, and consistency.
Activity
The Black Mouth Cur is not recommended for apartment or city living. As a working and hunting breed they require an inordinate amount of mental and physical activity. This breed does best in a rural setting or a home with a large securely fenced yard.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Black Mouth Cur puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Cost of Black Mouth Cur's How much does a Black Mouth Cur cost?

1 Comment

The cost of a Black Mouth Cur really depends on the area you are in. They can be as low as $400.00 each to as high as $1400.00 each. Going to a reputable, responsible, and knowledgeable breeder is your main concern when getting a dog, not the price.

The conditions of a 'family' or 'companion' dog all depend on the family itself. If your family is up for the challenge of a smart, but can be stubborn dog then the mixture is fine. The Black Mouth Cur and the Labrador Retriever both need an average of 2 hours of hard running exercise a day, so as long as the dog's exercise needs are met then he/she can be a great family companion.

The average size of the litter is 8 puppies. Please note that breeding a dog that is not in the hands of a reputable breeder is dangerous. For the health of your dog, spaying her after the puppies are born is the best thing.

Every dog is different. She may have been taught not to bark if she lived in a city environment. Play with her and allow her to express herself the way she chooses. If she does bark, praise her if you wish her to bark. If she does not, then be happy to have a dog that will not bother your neighbors!

My BMC is very quiet and means total business. He will only bark when the prey is treed. I had a cougar following me and my two dogs (only one is a BMC). My mixed dog barked and hid behind me and my BMC quietly ran away and circled around behind the cougar and surprised him from the rear.... cat ran away... These dogs are absolutely fearless and extremely intelligent and loyal. Remember to never treat a BMC harshly; the only thing they are afraid of is disappointing you!

Black Mouth Curs have varied historical documentation dependent upon region. Among them are the Ladner Yellow Black Mouth Cur from Mississippi, Southern Black Mouth Cur from Alabama, Weatherford's Ben Black Mouth Cur from Texas, and the Florida Black Mouth Cur. The first Black Mouth Curs registered with a national kennel registry, were Ladner Black Mouth Curs through the National Kennel Club in April 1964. (Although, Southern Black Mouth Curs were already on file in Howardtown, Alabama. This was the first kennel registry flor the Black Mouth Cur.) Mr L.H. Ladner had such extensive written documentation of his family's breeding that the NKC recognized the breed.

He chews on everything, climbs in and out of the fence at will, digs holes, rolls in manure and somehow I still love him. I need help on the chewing though. He weighed 47 pounds Christmas and now he weighs 74. He's a little chunky and I think by his proportions at his full height. I buy chew bones, toys, and have cut up a 2 by 4 but he still chews on the house if I forget to renew the bitter apple spray. Any more ideas on the chewing? Is this common with this breed?

You have to get on them like a child and tell them no. You might go to wal-mart and look for a green rubber duck and see if he takes to it.

run him a lot, a lot, a lot. morning, afternoon, night, long runs. he'll stop, and eventually he'll stop for good and forget he ever used to chew on the house. my BMC also chewed up everything. i kennel trained him and now he loves his kennel, especially when im gone, it also keeps him out of trouble.

When I first got my black mouth cur puppy he chewed everything including the garden hose in equal lengths. But as he got older and I trained him that chewing things that isn't his toys is bad. He stopped doing it. Plus taking him on long runs helps too. They need to use up all that energy. So try keeping your puppy busy it will help

No, BMC's are not. However, it is best you watch for allergies and go from there. If anything, take your Black Mouth Cur to the vet and have them tested.

I have a cur that is very friendly but it sounds like a socialization issue. Buy some training treats and let your son start slowly making friends with your Cur. She probably has a trust issue but with some attention from your son and a few peace making treats she will probably come around.

This an old post but the dog should have gotten all of her food and high value possesions from your son. It would also including her "learning to earn" her dinner, toys, etc. With a little work to establish trust, she could turn into his best friend for a very long time to come. I hope things worked out.

We do not hunt our BMC and live on an acre. We just play ball with him, and he's in good shape. Has never destroyed anything out of boredom, however he will hunt anything that moves in the backyard. That seems to keep him happy.

I have a 6 month old daughter and the dog seems to meet our requirements. I'm worried though, because I'm afraid about when my daughter gets a bit older and starts to pull it's tail and hit it on the nose and stuff? I'm afraid it will attack her. Also, it will be outside quite a bit, in a LARGE fenced in yard, but will be played with quite a bit each day. Will it dig out of a fence?

When our BMC was a pup he did snap at the kids once. I was there and corrected the situation immediately, and he never did it again. We still watch him closely around non-family members kids. He has never snapped at a kid in 6 years.. so so far so good.

If you establish the dogs pecking order in the family (pack) he will know how to act around the kids. They will play rough if they are allowed. I have two teenage boys and a 1 1/2 yr old cur and he plays rough when they get rough. He likes little kids but I have to get after him once in awhile because he wants to play and he is big enough to knock them over. Be firm with the dog and he will learn to behave and be patient with the little ones.

I too have an 18 month old cur and she can and will play rough. She use to jump on me so I got that corrected. Now she will jump at me and flip her body to bump me. As for the digging, line a foot wide fence wire of some sort around your fence laying flat on the ground butted up against the fence.

i just recently learned about black mouth curs because a man at the dog park recognized mine as one- we adopted her when she was 8 mos old with little known about her other than she was a rhodesian- boxer mix- after seeing the websites about BMC- im not sure- she doesn't have black on her tongue but the roof of her mouth is black. She is a grat dog- walks about40 min every morning and does well inside the rest of the day til evening walks. Gentle but retreats if children are noisy or approach too fast- she backs into me. She is a wonderful dog

Sorry, but there is no such thing as a pure bred BMC..so if you're told that the dog is a pure bred someone is trying to pull the wool over your eyes. I have 4 curr dogs and they all have different colorations in their coats. Because no curr is pure. Dogs have genes that mutate over years and its causes different traits from earlier generations or new ones that just formed..so you may have a dog with a black tongue, black roof of the mouth, black spots on the tongue, or a black tongue. But any dog can have spots in their mouth, currs I've seen over the years have had it more often than other breeds though.

I disagree with the person that said there are no pure bred BMCs. There are indeed! To answer your question tho'----a pure Black Mouth Cur, of which there are seven types, always has a totally black roof of the mouth, black cheeks and black lips. The only thing in the BMCs mouth that ISN'T black is the TONGUE! Also, most BMCs have webbed feet, but not all. You need to research the breed more. There is a lot of information available on the Black Mouth Cur. And don't let anyone tell you that they aren't pure bred. Some, like the "Ladner" line are registered and very expensive. Wonderful dogs! I've had several. Interestingly, they can live a very long life, with few health problems, which is rare for a large dog.

One is an intact male, the other is a neutered male. The 2 Labs were having an argument last night and she jumped into it and was tearing at the neutered male's skin like she was going to rip him apart. This is the first time she has done this, now I fear that she may do this when we are not around to stop her. Any recommendations on how to this behavior so she gets along with the dogs that are already here and only attacks what is not supposed to be here?

The trigger was the other two dogs having an argument. If you deal with those two fighting she will not have a need to jump into it. As far as attacking things that are not supposed to be there, why would you need that? You need to get a real trainer out to the house to teach you about the pack dynamics. Your Black Mouth Cur bitch is not trying to be dominant, she is trying to deal with a very upset pack.

Lol the gyp is going to establish dominance if she is a dominant dog thats just it the end. dogs have a pack mentality and if you dont establish the order as you being the alpha and they being the subordinates then your pack will establish its own. and as for her attacking the other dogs she didnt choose which one to attack she most likely just jumped into it to try to prove she could be alpha..also when a HUNTING dog hears or sees a fight going on they are naturally curious because they are bred to take down prey and predator animals. you dont need a trainer be firm with the dog dont let it get away with one behavior you dont like and you'll have a perfect pack no need to waste money on a trainer you dont need

Black mouth curs are not so selectively bred, therefore there is some variety in size and coloring, but a much better health profile than dogs that are so standardized. They live longer and have fewer health problems associated with the breed. Just don't expect them to be a good hang around the house pet. They are smart and active !!! They need a job to do.

The AKC only recognizes breeds that ask them to recognize them. The Black Mouth Cur parent club would have to want this first. Once they apply for recognition, then they would need a standard as well an established breeding program that breeds true. It takes a while to become approved and lots of breeds do not care to be recognized.

My Cur was raised with a cat that it loved, but also loved to chase. She has difficulty adjusting to other cats but it's not impossible as she is very well trained and heeds my word well. Curs are stubborn and will assume alpha position if not established by the owner, so if you're considering introducing a cat to even an early cur, be sure it knows who is boss. i even go so far as to not let my cur walk in front of me on walks, always at my side.

Whenever a cat comes into my backyard, the only way it comes back out is in a garbage bag and there is very little left. So in short if your dogs are trained to hunt or come from a excellent hunting bloodline then chances are your cat's days are numbered. Black Mouth Cur dogs are breed for the hunt and will not hesitate to kill a coon of boar. I have seen this dog swallow and entire squirl in 30 seconds.
