About Mountain Cur
Country of Origin, History of the breed
The word "cur"
describes a dog of uncertain origin. As far
as is known, these terrier-type dogs were
brought to America from Europe by the settlers
of the Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee mountains
to guard the family and property, for hunting
game and treeing. Here these dogs mated with
the native curs. The Mountain View Cur is
believed to have originated in the Ohio River
Valley, but is used all around the South as
a traditional hunting dog. The Mountain Cur
Breeders Association has been registering
the breed since the late 1950s. Today they
are being divided into various types, such
as the Treeing Tennessee Brindle, Stephens
Stock, and the Mountain View Cur.

A General Description
of the Breed
The Mountain Cur is stocky, rugged,
muscular, wide and powerful with a short but heavy
coat and a soft fine undercoat. Coat colors include
yellow, brindle, black, brindle & black, often
with white points. This Cur has a strong, wide head,
with folded-over, tightly controlled ears set high.
The eyes are usually dark brown and expressive,
the muzzle heavy. The chest is deep, the body is
long, the back and forelegs straight. The back legs
have slightly bent hocks. The feet are oval, muscled
and feline-like. Dew-claws on hind feet should be
removed. About 50% of all Mountain Curs are born
Height: Mountain Cur are 18-26
inches (46-66 cm.)
Weight: 30-60 pounds (16-29 kg.)
Temperament of the Breed
The Mountain Cur is a fierce,
tough, agile, alert, decisive and dauntless dog.
This breed is definitely not shy, vicious, submissive
or easygoing. Usually silent on the trail, they
make consistent guard dogs. It retains a high degree
of ancestral instincts such as running a track with
the head in the air.
Trailing ability varies with strains,
but they have enough nose to follow game and many
exhibit amazing treeing instincts. This hunting
dog will catch a mad bull head-on in the nose and
will hold his ground even against a bear when threatened.
This breed is very possessive and
protective, sometimes overly so, of the property
and family, which is a trait unusual in hounds.
They make treasured watch-dogs.
Better suited to outdoor or indoor lifestyle?
The Mountain Cur is not suited
for apartments or small houses as it demands vigorous
exercise and hard work. Thus, it is not the ideal
pet or companion for families.
How active is the breed?
The Mountain Cur is a very active
working dog which needs vigorous exercise to give
vent to its immense energy. They need to be taken
on a daily, long, brisk walk or jog. In addition,
they will benefit from a large safe area (for example,
a fenced yard) where they can run around freely.
This breed is very enthusiastic about participating
in outdoor activities and sports. They respond well
The short hair of the Mountain
Cur is easy to groom. It should be occasionally
(once a week or so) combed and brushed to remove
dead and loose hair. A Mountain Cur should be bathed
only when necessary as bathing can dry out the skin,
causing skin problems. It is important to keep the
ear canal free of excess hair and the toenails clipped.
The Mountain Cur is not known to suffer from any
