I was wondering if a Mountain Cur is a good dog for petting as I have wanted a dog since my childhood, but never had one. But I want to ask about few things from people who have this dog as their pet. What are some good and bad things about Mountain Cur? Which gender is better to handle, male or female? Are they easy to house train? How long can I leave them locked up if I am not around? Are they good with kids? Which time is best to get them as a pet? Is it when they are puppy or as an adult? What do you guys think? Waiting for some useful replies.
