Jackson is a very playful and fun loving, friendly boy! Would be great for an active family! Very athletic and sweet! The Mountain Cur, a type of working dog, is intelligent and easily trained. They tend to be very energetic. Curs, of which there are several varieties, are members of the Hound group,They are known to please their masters. Curs were bred to work, and if deprived of the opportunity, they will grow bored. When they have a job to do (or get some daily exercise), they are generally happy and obedient and able to get along well with people and other pets. Get acquainted with this dog off leash in one of our family run areas. Most dogs will need to run off some energy before they settle down and get acquainted with you. Thanks!
