My dog is a mixed breed but i am sure he has black mouth cur in him and so does his father and they both have black spots on their tongues.

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

My Cur is pure bred and has no black spots on his tongue but the roof of his mouth has black on it. I think the black has something to do with a gene trait rather than a certain breed trait.

I have a mix, BMC & rat terrier, she has black on the roof of her mouth & 3 black dots at the back of her tongue, as well as having her lips outlined in black & black on her muzzle.

They are called BMC b/c their mouths are outlined in black & they usually have a black muzzle, not b/c they have black inside their mouth, but some do have black spots on the tongue or the roof of the mouth is black.

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.
