    Basic History On The Blackmouth Cur

    Blackmouth Curs have varied historical documentation dependent upon region. Among them are the Ladner Yellow Blackmouth Cur from Mississippi, the Red Blackmouth Cur from Alabama, and Weatherford's Ben line of Blackmouth Cur from Texas, and not forgetting the Florida Blackmouth Cur.

    The first Blackmouth Curs registered were the Ladner Blackmouth Curs through the National Kennel Club in April 1964. Mr L.H. Ladner had such extensive written documentation of his family's breeding that the NKC recognized the breed. These curs are used to tree squirrel, raccoon, bobcat, mountain lion, and bear. They are used for hunting hogs and feral cattle.

    The Weatherford's Ben Texas Blackmouth Cur comes from a line of cur well-documented in the book Big Thicket Legacy. They were primarily used for herding cattle.

    The Red Alabama Blackmouth Cur is believed to have originated in Alabama, though there are Red Blackmouth Cur in Florida and Tennessee. These cur were supposedly registered as property in the courthouses around Howardtown about 40 miles north of Mobile and nearby Tibbie in the 1940s.

    They were used as multipurpose pioneer dogs that would hunt, protect the home, and gather in the cattle and pigs at slaughter time. Several breeders in Alabama, Mrs Murphy among them, continue to work toward retaining and improving the Red Blackmouth Cur. Through the efforts of several Blackmouth Cur breeders, the United Kennel Club later recognized the breed, featuring Howard Carnathan's Bruno, a Red Blackmouth Cur, in their standard photograph.

    Blackmouth Curs now range from the east to the west coast, and as far north as Canada. The Ladner Blackmouth Curs are also known to be in Mexico, Argentina, Haiti, Russia, India, and throughout Europe.

    Basic History On The Black Mouth Cur (BMC)
    First off, the “black mouth” refers to the inside roof of the mouth and not the black mask that appears on some Black Mouth Curs. Their colors can vary widely from pale yellow almost white to black with brindle and various shade of red and yellow included in the spectrum. They are mainly bred for their working ability.

    Black Mouth Curs have varied historical documentation dependent upon region. Among them are the most well known lines are Ladner Yellow BMCs from Mississippi, the Howard BMCs from Alabama, and Weatherford's Ben line of BMCs from Texas.

    The first Black Mouth Curs registered were the Ladner Black Mouth Curs through the National Kennel Club (NKC) in April 1964. Mr. L. H. Ladner had such extensive written documentation of his family's breeding that the NKC recognized the breed. These curs excel at treeing game. They are the most popular BMCs in the United States.

    The Howard Black Mouth Cur line originated in Alabama. The history of Howardtown indicates in 1875, a cur dog was being used on cattle, goats, sheep, and hogs during the day and for hunting at night on various animals. They were used on trap lines and squirrels. These were dogs that lived and worked in the woods. In the past, BMCs and other breeds of Washington County were recorded at the county seat, the same as earmarks on hogs and brands on cattle. Good working dogs were stolen back then, and the records helped to establish ownership.

    The Weatherford's Ben line of BMCs comes from the Taylor line of curs. Ricky Driver gave the Henry dog (Taylor line) and Henry’s sister to Ben Jordon in the late ‘70s or the early ‘80s. Rickey obtained his dogs from the Taylors. The Taylors had moved into the area around Groesbeck, Texas with their yellow dogs. At the time the people in the area were using leopard curs (cur dogs marked like the Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Curs). After the locals saw how well Taylor’s dogs worked livestock and other jobs, the ranchers switched over to Taylor’s yellow curs. Mr. Taylor later moved to south Texas and went to work on a huge ranch where he lived, bred cur dogs and worked until his retirement and departure from this world. Ben Jordan is a respected cattleman and when others saw how well Henry worked they were convinced this was a line they wanted to have. Henry is the grandfather of the Weatherford’s Ben dog. The Ben line is known for their strong windmill on cattle, their talent for tracking, and flair for finessing big game.

    The Ross line of Black Mouth Curs comes from the cur dogs well-documented in the book Big Thicket Legacy. They were an all-purpose, ranch and farm, family dogs. The same dogs were used to herd livestock, protect the homestead, hunt meat, and play with the children.
    Curs were used as multipurpose pioneer dogs that would hunt, protect the home, and gather in the cattle and pigs at slaughter time. The Black Mouth Cur was recognized by UKC on November 1, 1998 using Fieldstone Flower in their breed standard photograph. Later Flower’s picture was replaced with a artist’s sketch of the ideal BMC.

    UKC, Breed Standard Black Mouth Cur

    Black mouth Curs now range from the east to the west coast, and as far north as Canada. The BMCs are also known to be in Australia, Mexico, Argentina, Haiti, Russia, India, and throughout Europe.

    There are other great lines of BMCs like the Carnathan line, the Nolan line, the Ford line, etc.…, but space is limited so only the most popular lines were mentioned. There are also lines established by blending some the the old bloods together, like the Murphy line and the Hutson BMCs. The main point is, when selecting a BMC pup or dog, talk to the breeder and find out what his breeding plan was when he bred the parents.

    Also very closely related to the Black Mouth Cur is the Florida Cracker Cur, the Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Cur, and the Mountain Cur.
