Pet name:
Black Mouth Cur, Terrier, Mixed
Meet Goldie, a 5 month old Black Mouth Cur mix. Her breed refers to the dark pigmentation around her lips and the inside of her mouth. She has a short tan coat and weighs about 30 pounds. When full grown she is expected to be around 75 pounds. As to the rest of her mix, that is unknown. Her straight up ears and soulful dark eyes makes you wonder what else she is. A Black Mouth Cur is a southern dog known for their loyalty and energy. They love to run (she might be a good jogging partner when she is an adult) and have a playful nature. They were often used in the past as working dogs, particularly on farms. They love to be around people and family. Goldie was rescued from a high kill shelter because someone saw that she has the potential to be a wonderful family companion. She does well with other dogs and children but has not been introduced to a cat.  Little is known about Goldie’s previous life but puppies have lots of potential, and since she seems to be smart and friendly, she can grow to be a wonderful companion in the right home.She will need an owner who has has experience and/or knowledge of working with puppies. Using the right guidance with consistency and patience, will help her with the skills she needs to master. Cheerful praise and lots of treats will go a long way in helping her master those skills. It will take time and energy but the result will be worth it. Since we do not know if Goldie has had any training, it would be best to start at the beginning with house, crate, and leash training. Curs are known to be smart, so she may be a quick learner once routines are established. Daily short walks (under thirty minutes) will be a good opportunity to work on leash skills as well as socialization skills. It will be a new world to her with all the new sights, smells, sounds, and people along his walk. Please note: She may not be a running companion until at least age one when her growth plate closes.She will also appreciate free time in the back yard or at a local dog park to burn off her energy. Keeping her mind active with activities that provide physical and mental stimulation will prevent boredom. Could she be a future frisbee player? A ball catcher perhaps? Goldie is a loving pup. She will want to be with a family that will give lots of affection and attention to her. In return, she will give her love and devotion.Are you willing to commit to the time and energy needed to raise this puppy so that she can reach her full potential of being a loving, loyal companion? If yes, read on.Her adoption fee is $450. That includes the cost of spaying, up to date vaccinations, rescue, shelter, and transport fees.
