Black Mouth Cur Facts About Dogs:
The Black Mouth Cur (BMC) is a small dog breed with a distinctive black muzzle and white underbelly. They have a short coat, which they keep longer than other breeds.
Their coats vary from light to dark brown or even black. BMCs are very active dogs, but not too wild and adventurous like some of their relatives such as the dachshunds. They tend to be quiet and reserved. They do not bark much, but when they do, it’s usually a warning signal.
They are known for being good watchdogs and guard dogs. Some say that they make excellent family pets because they don’t need a lot of exercise and love attention.
A BMC may live up to 15 years if properly cared for!
Their size makes them ideal companions for children who enjoy playing with them.
They are very popular among owners who want a dog that will never growl at them.
How To Get A Black Mouth Cur?
There are several ways to get a black mouth cur. You could buy one from a breeder, or you could adopt one from an animal shelter. There are many reasons why someone might choose to adopt a black mouth cur instead of buying one, including cost, health concerns, and the fact that most shelters only take in neutered animals. Whatever the reason, there are many adult black mouth curs looking for a good home.
Black mouth curs are very intelligent and can easily pick up on training. They do not have strong herding instincts, but they tend to retain most of the training that they are given.
BMCs learn commands after only a few repetitions, which makes them ideal candidates for a pet or working dog. They tend to learn faster than other dogs, especially as pups.
If you are in the market to buy a black mouth cur, you should expect to spend anywhere from $800 to $2,000 for a pet quality dog. Show quality dogs can cost even more, sometimes as much as $5,000.
However, these higher prices exclude breeding rights, which can cost even more money.
Another reason why someone might choose to adopt a black mouth cur is that, being an uncommon breed, finding a BMC through traditional means can be very difficult.
The easiest way to find a black mouth cur is to contact a local breeder or visit an internet forum.
Finding a black mouth cur in an animal shelter is much more difficult, because they are not common in most parts of the country. In addition, black mouth curs are usually mixed with other breeds (such as the American pit bull terrier), making them even harder to find.
Black mouth cur cost is not usually a factor in adopting a dog, because shelters usually only charge a small fee or none at all.
However, many animal shelters will require that you meet certain criteria before they will let you adopt a dog. They may require that you:
Have a fenced-in yard
Have a certain ownership history (i.e.
no past animal abuse or neglect)
Pass a questionnaire
Take a pet knowledge test
Some shelters also have limitations on the number of pets you can own, so be prepared to say goodbye to your other pet if you fail to meet these criteria. A good thing to do is to find out what the adoption policies are before you go to the shelter.
Otherwise, you may be in for a long day of disappointment.
