Foster comments: Black Mouth Cur’s are my favorite breed. We had BMC’s growing up because my grandfather hunted ducks. I can guarantee King’s story is this: he was the cutest puppy ever, then started to grow up and because a whirling dervish with teeth and then was dropped off at the shelter. BMC’s are a working breed. They need a tremendous amount of exercise and mental stimulation. In my experience, they are the most intelligent and loyal breed. That being said, this “puppy” is going to eat a couch or a hole in wall without a strong handler. King is a lot of dog and needs an owner who gets that they are getting an incredibly powerful breed that must have guidance. Especially this guy, he is already 8 months and has no training base.

Meet King! King is a 8 month old, 45lb, Black Mouth Cur. And though King is only 45lbs now, he is going to get much bigger. Male Black Mouth Cur’s can reach weights of 60-80lbs. A very popular breed in the South, Black Mouth Cur’s are not well known in other regions. These are magnificent dogs! A working breed, they have high energy requirements, but unlike many working breeds BMC’s are incredibly loyal and highly intuitive. Old Yeller (in the novel) is a BMC. With the proper training, that’s the kind of performance you can expect from King. He’s going to work hard to please you and is the type of dog that will run into a burning building to save you. At the moment he is a giant, adorable puppy who is just learning how to be trained.
