I am up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
This is my little sweetheart is only 7 weeks old and looks like a tri border collie, quite fluffy! She looks like a little furball! Her story is one of the greatest horrors I have seen with my own eyes. Her Mom was left in a shelter that is forced to kill 3 out of every 4 dogs that come in. Puppies rarely survive. Mom originally had 7 puppies, when we were there I noticed her and asked about her puppies. When we went in to take a look at the puppies, there were only 4 and a half. Yes a half. The mother was eating them. Her stress level was above what she could handle and that is what she was doing. That part of the shelter is very cold, always under about 3 inches of water and extremely noisy with large dogs barking. They were dry in their igloo but the stress was too much on Mom. The puppies were quite ill, one had pneumonia and we had to have her put down on the spot, the other 3 we got out. We went straight to our vet who gave them little chance. But we put them on meds, bottle fed them every 2 hours….and MAGICALLY they turned around. My vet says that these are miracle puppies!!!
Their Mom’s tail is docked indicating that she is a pure bred mountain cur. They are super sweet babies. Meiko is quiet until she’s hungry then she will let you know or if she wants attention she is now quite used to having me at her beck and call. If your home needs a miracle, here she is! Final note, with our taking her babies, Mom was able to be altered and put on the adoption floor at the shelter where we hear she is doing very well.
A little breed history lesson here, "Cur's" were the first American settlers dogs. By the 1950's only few yellow curs survived in the remote mountain ans swamp regions of South America. Recently breeders have formed organizations to revive the breed. Another tidbit, the dog in Old Yeller is portrayed in the movie as being a yellow lab, however in the book the dog is a Cur!
Their country of origin is the United States making them our countries first true breed. Their weight range is 35-70lbs and height is 18-23 inches.
