Rescue Me ID: 17-07-24-00016Hercules (male)

Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hercules is a 2-year-old Mountain Cur Mix male; not neutered. He is high energy but seems to be very smart and easily trainable. He gets along well with my Siberian Husky. He's very strong as he's broken several dog chains until we got a small log type chain.(We have a leash law.) We are moving in a week and are unable to take him with us as they don't allow more than 2 animals. (We have four currently and are having to rehome two.) My son rescued him from an abusive owner a year and a half ago. He's a great dog but needs to be able to run around and get the attention he deserves.

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-19-00195Russell (male)

Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Russell would like you to know that he's a good boy! He's already house trained, crate trained and loves to play at the dog park with other dogs, and his favorite thing in the world (except his humans) is toys! He even has lived with a cat happily in the past. Russell is a 4.5 year old Mountain Cur mix who weighs around 50 pounds. He is looking for his number one hero in life to make all his dreams a reality. These are simple dreams; a nice comfy place to sleep, plenty of toys, playtime outside in a fenced yard, and lots of love, exercise, and attention. He really doesn't ask for much, as he puts his head on your knee and looks up with those ... (Read More)sweet brown eyes. He may need some help and guidance with his leash walking (he pulls and is just excited to get where he's going), but promises he will give you his all if you just give him the chance. Russell is a simple guy with a simple wish: a forever family of his own. He is an experienced house dog whose previous family could no longer care for him after their circumstances changed. Maybe you have felt like Russell and have had times that you've been down on your luck, and needed someone to help pick you back up? Be a hero today, and apply to give Russell the one thing he wants most: a home. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-11-00588Buster (male)

Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Buster is very energetic and loving, unfortunately he has had some aggression issues with other animals and growled at my husband and myself on rare occasion. We love Buster a lot but have a young child and another on the way and know that if he ever has any aggression towards them it could be devastating. we believe he would be great for someone who has time to work with him and space to run. I can give you more details if you are interested.

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-27-00352Solo (male)

Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Solo was born 03/21/16. He is full of energy and loves to run. His favorite things to do are play and snuggle. He goes to puppy daycare so he is well socialized and great with other dogs. Solo loves everyone, but it's better to not have him around small children since he doesn't care about personal space and is likely to knock them down. He does have separation anxiety and can not be kenneled. When left alone in the house he gets anxious and destructive. He knows basic commands like: sit, lay down, off, stay, and drop it. Solo needs a family with plenty of space for him to run and play.

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-22-00543Rocky (male)

Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Rocky is SUCH a sweet boy who gets along well with my female lab/border collie/grey hound mix, and is a very intelligent dog who loves to please his people! I have not seen any aggressions or dominating behaviors out of him, even when it comes to food and toys around my sassy gal. He does need lots of stimulation to keep his high energy at bay and to prevent distructive behavior due to boredom. We are currently working to potty train him via crate training and it seems to work well with him. This is the perfect pup for a large fenced in backyard or lots of acreage that he could run his little heart out in.. I do think he'd also be a ... (Read More)great hunting companion, as Mountain Currs were bred to do, but the lab in him also gives him an even temperament and does well with correction / praises once he gets it. And he loves to cuddle :-D (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Mountain Cur in Tennessee
    Mountain Cur Dogs can make good pets in Tennessee if they match your IifestyIe. The Mountain Cur is a brave, rugged hunting dog. Mountain Curs are protective guardians of their families bred from tough dogs of the pioneer days. Mountain Curs are best suited to life in the country with plenty of space to roam and a job to do. Mountain Curs are smart and trainable, but they do not make good indoor pets.
