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.

Do you think a Lab mixed with Cur would be a good smart family dog?

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, 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.

I have a pregnant Black Mouth Cur. What is the average size of litter for this breed?

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.

I have a mixed Black Mouth Cur/Austrilian Cattle resuced dog. They estimate her to be 4 years old. We have had her for a few days. We have noticed that she does not bark. Why?

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!
