In 2005, I bought my first Black Mouth Cur and in 2007 started Givens Blackmouth Cur. My breeding program is to produce a multitalented Black Mouth Cur, to preserve and improve temperament, health and intelligence. This has been accomplished by blending different lineages.
Most of my dogs have a sound temperament and will produce pups with a sound temperament. These pups, you must be the pack leader, when owning one of these pups. Bay, Rose and Madelynn have more of a submissive temperament. Their pups are excellent for those looking for only a companion or family pet. Any puppy out of our dogs, will make excellent tree dog, blood trail dog or ranch dog, Only two of my girls will put out pups gritty enough for hog hunting.
Givens Black Mouth Curs range in body style (broad and muscular, slim and muscular), weight,(60lbs-90lbs), and body height (24in-2in). Most of my dogs are yellowish-red in color with a few being more red and one tiger stripped. I have dogs with the black muzzle, black mask and one with a neither, called a plain face.
The Black Mouth Cur is territorial of their belongings, property, home and owner. Not all Black Mouth Curs, are going to be social with people outside your family. I've found that introducing them to many people and other dogs at an early age into adult years, will increase your chances of your BMC being more social. How well your puppy turns out, for what you are wanting it to be. Will entirely depend on the training and socializing a puppy gets from you or a personal trainer. The more time you spend with your puppy, the better it will be and will become a better dog. Training and socializing will always need to be a big part of your puppy's life, even into it's adult years. This breed isn’t for everyone, so be sure to do your research and ask questions before making a final decision.
The only time I offer dogs for sale, is if one can’t be bred or if one is being retired. References are available by request.
