If you own a ranch or need a hunting dog, a good breed choice is the Black Mouth Cur. It was a popular dog among early settlers in the southern U.S. When they moved west, the dogs did too. The colonists liked how the breed easily adapted for work and how they were confident, protective, and loyal. The Black Mouth Cur's outstanding qualities make it an excellent choice for outdoor people, but they can also make excellent family dogs.
