So you’re looking to adopt an Mountain Cur, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “The Mountain Cur is a fast, hard hunter that runs track with its head in the air. He can be open, semi-open, or silent on track and has a clear bark that can be heard a long distance. They will circle and drift on a cold track if a hot one is not available until they locate a hot track. They are courageous fighters when required and extremely intelligent, with strong treeing instincts, and can easily be trained to leave unwanted game. They respond best to training with a lot of human contact, and in addition to hunting, make great companions and watch dogs. Breed ContactName: Mandy MiddletonAddress: 417 N.
