Have you been looking at Mountain Cur puppies when trying to discover which dog would be the best fit for you?

Here’s everything you need to know about them to help you decide!

Where To Get Mountain Cur Puppies

f you’re committed to adopting, it can be hard to balance that with your ideal purebred dog. Purebred dogs don’t usually end up in shelters because they’re highly desirable. However, you might have more luck with a Mountain Cur since this isn’t considered a designer breed! It’s also quite easy to find a Mountain Cur mix, though the shelter won’t be able to DNA test the dog for you to be sure. However, it’s worth calling around shelters to ask. George…

The other route you can go to find your Mountain Cur companion is to look at breeders. While there’s nothing wrong with this, there are a few things to bear in mind.

The most important thing is to pick a good breeder. Unethical breeders, otherwise known as “backyard breeders”, will have puppies that have various health and temperament problems because they didn’t put much effort into their program. The parents may not have been chosen well or health-tested. This can result in a lot of vet and training bills down the line!

When researching a breeder, make sure they don’t let the puppies go home before they’re eight weeks old, provide registry papers and shot records, are open to any questions you may have, and have a spay/neuter contract in place. These are all signs of a responsible breeder. Laureno…

The Cost

For a purebred dog, a Mountain Cur isn’t too expensive. You can expect them to cost anywhere between $500 and $1000.

Appearance

This large dog can grow to be up to 26 inches tall and weigh up to 60 pounds. This pup has a smooth, short coat that can come in a handful of colors and markings.

Temperament

If you’re looking for a pup that’s more independent than velcro-dog, this might be the one for you. Although they love their family, they aren’t very cuddly and tend to be especially reserved with strangers. You can help this by socializing them when they’re young and ensuring all experiences with strangers are good ones, but they’ll never be the most social of dogs. They may not be tolerant of kids or other dogs either. Iroh…

They’re very intelligent dogs, but may not be the best choice for first-time owners as they can be stubborn. If this dog doesn’t want to do something, they might simply choose not to! That can make training a challenge. You could hire a professional trainer to help with this but most of all, you should stay calm and only use positive reinforcement.

If you choose to use aversive methods, you risk damaging your relationship with your dog and making them fearful and aggressive. Patience is key with a Mountain Cur!

Mountain Cur Puppies – Veterinary Needs

For the most part, the Mountain Cur is pretty healthy. They are prone to skin and eye infections, however, so you should keep an eye out for that.

Otherwise, their veterinary needs will be the same as any other dog. They’ll need a series of shots beginning when they’re around eight weeks old and ending when they’re sixteen to eighteen weeks. If you get your dog from a breeder, they mat start these early. This series protects against distemper, parvovirus, and other nasty diseases, so don’t bring your dog around other dogs until they’ve had them. They’ll also need a rabies shot at the end of this.

These will be boosted roughly once a year, when they should also get a check-up. You should take your dog to the vet if you do notice those eye and skin problems popping up, however.

Don’t forget to keep your dog up to date on flea and heartworm medicine. This is important and is usually a pill given to them once a month.

Diet

It’s the big debate between dog owners: kibble or raw?

Kibble is convenient, but you should still ensure you pick a good brand for your dog and not just grab the least expensive off the shelf. Some cheap stuff is full of fillers and doesn’t have a lot of nutrients in it. You should also avoid grain-free food, which has been linked to heart disease. Marvel…

Mountain Cur Puppies

Raw food is a great choice if prepared by a professional subscription service. Some will even deliver right to your door. Dogs are omnivores who need more than just meat, so don’t try to prepare this food yourself.

Grooming

The Mountain Cur has a short coat, so brushing them once a week should be sufficient to keep it in good shape.

Otherwise, you should take care of their ears, teeth, and nails.

Their nails should be trimmed around every six to eight weeks, though it really depends on the dog. Some dogs aren’t a fan of nail care time, so be sure to equip yourself with patience and treats!
