Bryce is an active boy that loves to chase the ball and play with toys. He's being well socialized and loves to give puppy kisses and play with his favorite squeaky toy. He is a wonderful little guy who loves to cuddle, but also knows how to play and have a good time He is sure to make your life complete with every puppy kiss and tail wag. Bryce is a Cur and is very responsive to kindness and are family-oriented but wary of strangers. They have an outstanding disposition and love kids. They are protective of the property and family, but not overly protective or aggressive. Basically, they have the sense to know when there's trouble and when there's not. People who have these dogs say owning a Cur is an enjoyable endeavor for the whole family. They will amaze you daily and will try to please you every way they physically can. As one owner said, he "believed they would cut wood for him if they could."
Yet another sweet and beautiful puppy running loose and scared on the street because someone could not take the time for a simple procedure of spaying/neutering. Bryce is 12 weeks old, an adorable Cur mix, who was rescued along with his brothers. Luckily they did not encounter any tragedy that would leave them hurt or scarred, except for being discarded and unwanted. They are young puppies, however, so they will not remember, and they will grow to be wonderful, loving companions.
Bryce is a spirited pup who can play hard but also cuddle up with you at the end of the day. He lives in a foster home with her siblings, who all serve as playmates. As with all puppies, supervision is still needed around the house - as a teething puppy, he might find your socks. Her favorite things to do is giving kisses, napping, and of course being a great friend.
Bryce currently spends his time playing with his siblings all day long. He is learning to trust humans. He is cautious when approached, but warming up nicely as the days go by. Like any puppy, he likes to frolic, chew and explore, and will need lots of puppy training, but his disposition is sweet and he seems very eager to learn. Now all he needs is a forever home; one that will keep him safe and love him unconditionally. Will you open your heart to Bryce?
We owe it to our dogs that the wonderful people who stand to be the last chapter of their rescue and the first chapter of their new forever lives deserve him. He is ready to slide right into your heart, do you have the requirements of a forever home of his own and endless love to celebrate his special qualities?

ABOUT THE BREED
Cur dogs are devoted to family, but may be wary of strangers. They are a medium size dog originating in southeastern Kentucky by the Stephen Family, developed from a strain of Mountain Cur, this breed is nicknamed "Darkie" for its dark, rich coat color.
CHILDREN & PETS
Cur dogs do well around other dogs, they are easy to train and get along with children. It's a happy and playful dog that loves to frolic and have a good time with kids. All dogs need plenty of opportunities for exercise each and every day.
BEHAVIOUR AND PERSONALITY
Cur is easy to train, are highly trainable and courageous. As with all dogs, humans should establish dominance in the relationship right away to avoid behavioral issues. This dog is smart and loves positive reinforcement with a kind and gentle demeanor.
Due to their high intelligence, we humans live with dogs, we become their pack. The entire pack cooperates under a single leader. Lines are clearly defined and rules are set. Humans MUST be higher up in the order than the dog. The humans must be the ones making the decisions, not the dogs. That way your relationship with your dog can be a complete success.
Many people have said that the Cur dogs will not get along with cats and other small animals which others have found that if you teach them from a young age they will respect all animals inside the home. At times he can be very precious and at other times very bold and brave. They loves games and seems to do well in a suburban setting with lots of exercise. They love daily walks and love to play fetch. They are shy around strangers, not aggressive but very submissive.
