Mountain Cur History

Mountain Curs originated in the mountains of Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee, but you can find different “Cur” types throughout the country. Dependable and hardy, they were used by pioneers to herd cattle, hunt wild boar and guard property. Though no one knows their exact lineage, Mountain Curs are believed to descend from European Cur-type dogs brought to the U.S. by immigrants.
