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.

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.

The 'rare' coloration of the Black Mouth Cur is thought to be a dog mixed with a Blue Lacy. A true Black Mouth Cur is tan to red in color with the classic black mouth.

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!

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.

I have a female Black Mouth Cur that is 18 months old. She does love to run and I once saw her almost run a deer down until it jumped through brush. She is very active in her running.

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.

He is uaually sweet but he has bitten a couple of people for going over his head to pet him. He crowls at me when I tell him good night and he shows me all of his teeth. He has snapped at neighborhood kids. He usually is very sweet but now we know how to act with him around. Is there anyway to cure this aggressiveness? I hate to get rid of him.

My Black Mouth Cur does not drool at all. Even after a long fast, and I mean fast run, he may pant but hardly any saliva will hit the floor If you want a smart dog, good pet and a loyal friend GET ONE.
