Overview
Often referred to as the "pioneer dogs of the Southern mountains", this versatile breed is steeped in tradition. Mountain Cur's are highly respected for their ability as hunter, protector, guardian, and farm worker.
Character
The Mountain Cur is muscular, rugged, and stocky. They are exceedingly fearless and squarely-built. They possess expressive eyes, great stamina, and are very agile.

Does your Mountain Cur bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Mountain Cur breed is an excellent hunting companion of small to large game. Their rough nature does not make them suitable for homes with children. They do not do well with dogs they do not know and are not recommended for homes with non-canine pets. The Mountain Cur is wary and suspicious of strangers and will not hesitate to protect their family and property.
Care
Occasional brushing is recommended to remove loose and dead hair. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary. Due to their skin being easily irritated only a mild shampoo should be used. There are no known genetic health issues associated with the Mountain Cur breed.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Mountain Cur is a double coat breed. The outer coat is short and may be rough or smooth in texture. The under coat is fine, soft, and dense.
Training
The Mountain Cur is intelligent but is not submissive. They typically will only respond to their hunting master. Early socialization and basic obedience is recommended. The Mountain Cur will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Mountain Cur puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Mountain Cur breed is not recommended for city or apartment living. The Mountain Cur requires an inordinate amount of physical exercise. They do best in a rural setting with work to do and ample room to safely roam and run. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

I have a rescue dog. Shipped from the ArkLaTex area. The rescue named her Pixie. we kept it. She's almost 7 mo, about 19" tall & my guess 35- 40 lbs. (She was 30 lbs in mid July @ vet visit. ) She looks very much like your dog here in this pict. she tested as 50% pit bull and 25% mutt and 25% pure bred Catahoula Leopard dog. My question is : Do they breed Catahoula with Pit and is a Mountain Cur the Same thing as a Catahoula ? she is SOOOoo lovable... when we first saw her... she climbed into my lap ( 5 months old and almost 20 lbs... they thought she was some kind of small terrier mix. ) now... she's almost as big as our lab boy... and she Still wants to sit in my lap ! lolol Also we have a 16 month yellow lab/ hound mix boy ( neutered of course) In June he weighed 52 lbs at his vet visit and he's about 25" tall.) and she seems to keep licking his doohickey, every time we turn around. Is that normal in fixed dogs ?? any one else have that problem ??

The Mountain Curr is a breed unto itself, so for your first question; no the Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog is not a Mountain Curr. However, because the Mountain Curr and the Lousiana Catahoula Leopard Dog were bred/created in the same area it is not uncommon for them to look like each other. Since the L.C.L.D can have so many different colors and combos to their coat. A lot of rescue dogs will develop the habit of wanting to be as close to their owners as possible because of the lack of affection/touch they got while either as a stray or in the rescue itself. It's natural, as the Mountain Curr tends to attach itself to one or two in the family and become very bonded with them. As for your female licking your male dogs genitals, it is a normal social behavior that young dogs will display. Some of what they can discover about another dog via this type of investigation is: age, gender, over-all health, sexual readiness, status within pack and where the other has been in the last few days (what have they been ingesting). Tasting is not uncommon, although most adult dogs will only tolerate a moment or two of this level of investigation. Younger dogs tend to linger longer, and typically when they do this to an older dog, the older dog will stop them after a moment, and this is how the younger dog learns the limit for such behavior. If you dislike the behavior, interrupt it after about 10 - 15 seconds by calling your girl away from your boy and distracting her with a treat or toy. She will learn as time goes on the social-doggy etiquette as time goes on. At only 5 months old she is just starting to enter puberty herself and so her hormones are changing and she is learning about the opposite gender of her species.

No, that's not correct. There is an actual breed called a Black Mouth Cur. It's a breed unto itself. Any other mixed breed can be referred to as a "cur" or mutt.

Do the Mountain Curs have black "spots" on the top of their tongues, and under their tongues? Do they also have webbed feet?

I have a Mountain Cur, her tongue on the top does have the spots, not sure underneath. She does not have webbed feet. :)

I work at a vet clinic and a client surrendered a female 6 month old Mountain Cur - I am thinking about adopting her, I don't hunt, but I do long distance horse riding 8-22 mile training rides. I live in a subdivision but have a fairly big yard, and daily walks already with my other dog. Would she be a good fit? And would she stay with me when I ride if she's not trained to hunt or is it a natural instinct?

I have owned four Mountain Curs over the past 30 years. Each has had their own personalities with some that would not leave my sight and others that would not stay with me outside. All have been house raised from young pups and have been very good pets. Keep in mind these are one person dogs that will love a whole family but only obey one person.

We got a dog from our local SPCA. They told us he was a Lab mix, but he was so pretty he had a Brindle coat nice shine, big dog like 80lbs. We had people tell us he was Lab and Pit Bull, but he has no Pit Bull features except the coat and he is so gentle and well behaved and very smart. I'd say he is the best dog I have ever owned. We were told he was running loose in town after 2 weeks nobody claimed him he had limes disease, but not bad he is fine. We had him treated and got all his shots. We found a picture of a Mountain Cur and I knew that was our Chesty. He loves to root up moles and he can smell a deer like a bloodhound. He is very obeying. When we got him, he was afraid of loud noise and didn't like vehicles, now he is very calm and rides with me every day in my old truck. Everybody here on the Island loves him and he loves the ladies and little kids. Best dog I ever had.

I adopted a dog a few months ago and the pound didn't know what breed she was. I did some research and I think she looks like a Mountain Cur, but I need a second opinion. She's medium sized, brindle, her ears are up high, her chest and paws are white, she's fast, jumps high, listens well. Here's a picture of her http://i1239.photobucket.com/albums/ff502/kateoz32095/lily.jpg

We have a pure bred Mountain Cur and your Lily looks very much like a Mountain Cur. The only thing that gives away she is a mix is her tail. Pure breds have a 3/4 naturally docked tail that acts much like a "handle" when hunting. When I pulled up your picture, my daughter asked if it was our Dixie. Hope this helps.
