Meet Hunter, a Black Mouth Cur Mix Dog for adoption by owner in Maple Valley WA. Just 2.5 years old and weighing 70 pounds, Hunter has been Neutered, Microchipped, Fully vaccinated, Crate Trained, and House Broken.
Hunter has an amazing personality. He is a very sweet and well-behaved dog in the home. Hunter’s ideal home will be with a family with active, older kids.
Black Mouth Cur dogs are an incredible breed of dog. Early settlers needed a dog that could suit all of their needs, rather than focusing on a specific task. They also needed a dog that would be a loyal and dedicated family companion so that it would protect the homestead. The Black Mouthed Cur has retained these traits to date, and Hunter is no exception.
Hunter has a huge heart and shows so much love for his family. He is also very protective of his home and family, and this has led to some issues when a family with small children moved in next door. Hunter doesn’t know what to make of them and has displayed
protective behaviors as a result (but only when they are on the other side of the fence, and yet is fine with them when they are playing in the owner’s yard). This isn’t his fault – it is in his breed to be this way.
As much as it kills them to do so, his family has had to make the difficult decision to rehome Hunter to a family who doesn’t have neighbors so close to them. Hunter is not a “dog park dog” because he is only good with confident bigger dogs who like to play rough. He went to dog park and played for an hour with three strong dogs well. But when he saw a small yapping dog, he did not do well. Hunter loves playing with his 45-pound rescue collie mix, Max.
Hunter also isn’t a dog that will walk passively on a leash when encountered by other dogs or people he has not met. Hunter is a dog that will be best suited to a country home, with a family that can give him all the love, kindness, care, and companionship that he needs and deserves
Hunter’s ideal home will be in a rural area. He needs a home with a large, secluded, and securely fenced backyard. In exchange, he will love you with every fiber of his being, and he will protect his home and family with his life.
If you have been looking for a great dog that takes protecting his home and family seriously, Hunter may be your dream dog. He is healthy, well trained, and has a loving personality. He loves to play keep-away, tug-o-war, fetch, go swimming and work on his kong treat toy. Hunter’s paws are webbed like most Black Mouth Curs and he is an excellent swimmer!
