Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered 

    Listed as a mixed breed since we're unsure but he has the looks & temperament of a purebred Cur. This fella is friendly, has a sweet disposition, is eager to please and responsive to training. He showed up at our farm, and followed us everywhere. He never threatened livestock (cows, chickens), kept us company when we were outside and stayed right outside the house when we were in. He is watchful and alerts when a car comes up the driveway or a deer crosses the yard but is otherwise quiet and didn't join in with the howls of a neighbor's hound dogs. He got along well with our 2 female house dogs and while we haven't seen him around kids, ... (Read More)cats or male dogs, he shows no signs of aggression so I expect he'd get along well with them too. We weren't able to keep him so he's now at the local shelter. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-24-00790Max (male)

Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    --Max was found him running down the middle of a busy country road, with cars swerving to avoid him. When my husband tried to get him, he ran to the side of the road and started rooting in some trash bags someone had left in the ditch.. He had no collar and it was clear he needed a decent meal - when we started feeding him he wolfed down his food for a couple days until he got secure that we would be feeding him regularly. --He LOVES walks. He's definitely a dog that couldn't be fulfilled without regular long walks and/or physical activity. We have several acres and my husband would take him for super long walks every night. He had to have ... (Read More)a stick in his mouth to carry and gathered a few favorites that he would pick up along his route, and looked so proud of himself to carry these around. He loved to sink down into mud puddles, and when we took him to our pond he immediately walked in and started paddling. He definitely seems to have some Labrador traits. --He seems to be a very sensitive/people-oriented dog. He looks into your eyes from time to time as you walk with him and seems to want to connect with you, not just do his own thing. He also likes to sit down from time to time during walks and survey his surroundings. --We didn't get to observe him around cats or children, so that is an unknown but we will test him with that before rehoming him in a family with that situation. --He was very good with our dogs. We have 4 - two smaller mutts, and 2 high-strung unneutered bird dogs. They would bark at him like crazy through the fence, but Max walked in calmly on his leash and let them swarm him. One of our bird dogs tried to dominate him a couple of times by standing over him with ears back, and Max ignored him. Our littlest dog snapped at Max when he came up to sniff her and again he just walked away not looking too offended. He tried to engage them in play, and all of our dogs acted kind of stand-offish, but he seemed to accept that and trot around our yard on his own. Max is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and heart wormed negative. He is housebroken and beginning leash training. Our foster feels he should go to a home with children 5 or older because of his energy level (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.
