Siberian Black Mouth Cur Breed History

The Siberian Black Mouth Cur is a rare hybrid dog breed. In order to understand the origins of the Siberian Black Mouth Cur, it is important to study the origins of the parent breeds. The Siberian Husky's ancestor originated among the Chukchi, native nomads to Siberia. DNA  confirms that the Husky is one of the oldest dog breeds. Not only did the dogs provide transportation for their owners, but they also slept inside with the families, providing warmth for children especially. The Husky was brought to Alaska in 1908 where they became sled dogs. The Siberian Husky was a part of the All-Alaskan Sweepstakes, a race that is much like the Iditarod. He was also used to pull sleds through the deep snows of the Klondike during the Gold Rush. The Black Mouth Cur is a truly American dog. The Black Mouth Cur originated in the southern United States; in 1964, L.H. Ladner shared his breeding records, which indicated that his family had developed the dog that would become as the Black Mouth Cur. His extensive records mapped out the origin of the Black Cur bloodline. It is unknown exactly what breeds were combined before the Ladner family opened up their breeding program records to create the modern Black Mouth Cur.

Siberian Black Mouth Cur Breed Appearance

The Siberian Black Mouth Cur will be a large dog. He may be a cream or yellow color, a nod to his Black Mouth Cur parentage. Conversely, he may be a dark brown or gray (perhaps black) like the Siberian Husky parent. Eye color is also varied. He may have brown eyes like the Black Mouth Cur parent breed, or he may have a "glass" eye (one brown and one blue) - a trait he may inherit from the Siberian Husky parent breed. His coat is also likely to be influenced by the dominant parent breed. He may inherit the short, smooth coat of the Black Mouth Cur. Conversely, he may inherit the slightly longer, dense double coat of the Siberian Husky parent breed. His tail will curl over his back, and his ears will be erect.

Siberian Black Mouth Cur Breed Maintenance

The maintenance level of the Siberian Black Mouth Cur will largely depend upon the dominant parent breed. Should he inherit the short, straight coat of the Black Mouth Cur parent breed, the Siberian Black Mouth Cur will require little in the way of maintenance. He can be brushed weekly to remove any excess hair, bathe him only when necessary. Should he inherit the dense double coat of the Siberian parent breed, you will need to brush him two or three times a week to rid his coat of excess hair. Expect him to "blow" his coat twice a year. During the spring and fall, you will need to brush him daily. Brush his teeth two or three times a week to prevent the build-up of tartar on his teeth and bad breath. To prevent tooth decay, brush his teeth daily. Note: You will need to establish a grooming routine with him early in his life. The Siberian Husky parent breed can be sensitive to touch. Wipe out his ears with a cotton ball once a week to remove excess dirt; also, check his ears for redness and odors. Trim his nails every other week unless he wears them down naturally.

Siberian Black Mouth Cur Temperament

The Siberian Black Mouth Cur is a rather serious dog. He takes some time to warm up to strangers. This, however, makes him a good watchdog. He is not likely to be standoffish with his family. He is highly intelligent, though housebreaking may take a little more time with the Siberian Black Mouth Cur than with other breeds. However, start training him at an early age and reinforce good behavior with praise and treats. He will not respond to punishment as a deterrent to bad behavior. He is not one to bark a great deal, but he will let you know if anything is amiss within his territory. Certainly, once he bonds to his family, he is very affectionate with them. He can be good with other dogs, but he must be socialized at an early age in order to successfully spend time with other animals.

Siberian Black Mouth Cur Activity Requirements

The Siberian Black Mouth Cur has the propensity to be rather active; however, if left to his own devices, he will become lazy and begin to put on weight. To keep him healthy, it is best to provide him with ample play and exercise time. He will fit into the activities of an active family, such as long walks and hiking. In fact, you will likely tire before he will on the hiking trail. Should you allow him time inside a fenced-in yard to play, be sure that the fence is at least six feet in height and that it is anchored at least 10 inches in the ground. Both parent breeds have a tendency to climb over fences and dig their way out of them as well. He will enjoy a trip to the dog park as well, but wait until he is fully trained. Remember, he is a hunter at heart, and he may be prone to wandering off when not on a leash or inside a properly-built fence.
