Energetic, fearless, and strong, the Black Mouth Cur is valued as an all-around working dog bred to help farmers and hunters in the rugged terrain of the southeastern United States. The breed can herd livestock, protect the home, and track game, though they also has a sensitive side that doesn’t respond well to harsh rebukes or punishment. The Black Mouth Cur loves being around humans and family and is great with children. Although, their high exercise needs make this breed a poor choice for novice owners or those who can’t keep up with a demanding energy level, and their tendency to play rough may not be best for very young children. Black Mouth Curs mostly live in the United States and are a bit rare in other parts of the world.
