Rescue & Adoption: Why Adult Black Mouth Curs Make Better Pets

By By Adopt-a-Pet.com's Pia Salk

<p><strong>So, you want to adopt a Black Mouth Cur, huh? Great idea! Want to hear an even better idea?</strong> Rescue an adult Black Mouth Cur. No pooch is too old for puppy love and puppies are only puppies for a few months after all, right? Oh, you have your heart set on a cute little Black Mouth Cur puppy? Have you been looking at Black Mouth Cur puppies for sale, checking out Black Mouth Cur puppy breeders? OK, here's some food for thought if you have your heart set on a puppy, and a few reasons why adopting an adult might be your better option:</p>

<h3>What It Takes to Housebreak a Puppy</h3>
<p>Before you adopt a Black Mouth Cur, consider how much time your new family member will spend alone. Remember, a puppy requires constant attention. The key to successful housebreaking is consistency; preventing "accidents" is key. Once a puppy soils the carpeting, it becomes much more difficult to train them out of that behavior. Here's a good rule of thumb to consider: a puppy can hold his bladder just one hour for every month they've been alive. For instance, a 3-month-old puppy will need to empty his bladder every three hours! Before you adopt a Black Mouth Cur puppy, ask yourself if you are available to walk your dog several times throughout the day, and if you have the patience and commitment to wake up and take him out first thing every morning at the same time, and stick to a strict schedule. Of course, before you can walk him at all, you will need to train him to walk on a leash, which is a project in itself.</p>

<p>On the other hand, an adult dog's bladder is already fully developed. Shelter dogs are often already housetrained and Black Mouth Cur rescue groups can tell you if their adult dogs for adoption are housebroken before they go into your home. You also have the advantage of knowing that your dog is physically able to "hold it" for several hours at a stretch. In most cases, adult dogs are by far easier to housebreak than puppies. You can teach an old dog new tricks!</p>


<h3>Puppy Behavior Sometimes Isn’t Pleasant</h3>
<p>Sure, Black Mouth Cur puppies are super-cute, but simply put, puppies can be adorable, relentless machines of destruction. Even the most well-behaved puppy will destroy shoes, clothing, paper, remote controls, telephones, leashes, dog beds, carpeting…anything and everything. More rambunctious pups have been known to obliterate sofas, car seats, Venetian blinds, electrical cords, door frames…you name it, they can eat it or shred it. And when they're teething, look out! Cute puppies have very sharp teeth, and they are happy to use your hands, feet, nose, hair, etc, as a chew toy. Ouch! Needless to say, a teething Black Mouth Cur puppy and a small child do NOT make good companions! To keep the puppy from hurting himself, and to prevent the destructive behavior from becoming a bad habit, you will need to spend every waking moment supervising his every move. Do you have that kind of time?</p>

<p>Many Black Mouth Cur dogs in shelters or with rescue groups are already trained and ready to go! Adults have a much longer attention span than puppies, too, which means they're easier and faster to teach. Adult dogs already have recognizable personality traits, so you'll be able to select one who is great with children. Many Black Mouth Cur rescue groups use foster homes to make sure each Black Mouth Curs for adoption is trained to be well-behaved indoors. Although all dogs need attention and playtime, an adult dog's needs are far less demanding than a puppy's.</p>


<h3>You Won’t Know a Puppy’s Personality for Sometime</h3>
<p>With an adult Black Mouth Cur, what you see is what you get. Their personality is already developed, and you'll be able to spot the characteristics you're looking for much more easily than with a puppy Black Mouth Cur. Shelters and rescue groups are able to assess the personality of each Black Mouth Cur for adoption, and carefully match you up with the right dog for your lifestyle. When you adopt a puppy, there is a lot more guesswork involved.</p>

<h3>Adult Black Mouth Cur Adoption = An Instant Friend for Life</h3>
<p>Ask anybody who has adopted an adult dog, and they'll swear their bond with their rescued pal is as deep as they come. When you open your heart and your home to a dog who needs help, they really do show their appreciation for the rest of their life! Dogs who have been uprooted from their homes, or have had difficult beginnings are likely to bond completely and deeply with their new human caretakers who they view as heroes. Black Mouth Curs who find themselves in the shelter or at a rescue group because of a death or other tragedy in their former human family usually go through a mourning period. Once they are adopted, however, they usually want nothing more than to please their new hero---YOU! No matter what circumstances brought them to the shelter or rescue group, most Black Mouth Cur dogs for adoption are exceptionally affectionate and attentive pets and extremely loyal companions. But first you have to adopt one!</p>

<h3>Adult Black Mouth Cur Adoption = Truly Saving a Life</h3>
<p>When you adopt an adult dog, you are doing the ultimate good deed. Let's face it: at first a lot of people think they want to find Black Mouth Cur puppies for sale, but not everyone is lining up to adopt the great adults! Some people might have the misconception that Black Mouth Curs in shelters have something wrong with them. In fact, most Black Mouth Curs for adoption end up in shelters not because of any problem with pet behavior or health issues, but because they were dropped off by someone who simply didn't have the time or money to care for the animals. In some cases pets are lost and never found by their owners. These animals are healthy and very eager to please. Did you know that every year, approximately 4 million adoptable animals are killed? A staggering 25% of those animals are purebreds, so you can bet there is a Black Mouth Cur in need of adoption.</p>

<p>With such a huge overpopulation problem, looking for a Black Mouth Cur dog for sale, or Black Mouth Cur puppies breeders, sadly contributes to this tragedy. Rescue groups that specialize in adoption work very, very hard to help adult dogs find good homes. Rescues are almost always made up of a group of volunteers. They often keep Black Mouth Curs for adoption in their own homes while they assess their health and personalities. If a dog needs basic training, often the rescuer will provide it. If a dog needs medical treatment, many dedicated dog rescuers pay for it out of their own pocket. These people are incredibly passionate about rescue, and they work tirelessly to make sure every dog finds a home. Nothing is as rewarding to these heroes as a successful adoption! Please help these healthy pets, before looking at a Black Mouth Cur puppies breeder, or a Black Mouth Cur puppy for sale search our Black Mouth Cur adoption database at this page!</p>

<h3>Adoption Means a Healthier Black Mouth Cur as You’re Pet</h3>
<p>Shelters have dogs of all breeds, including purebred Black Mouth Curs. These dogs sometimes end up in shelters because a Black Mouth Cur dog breeder, or someone who had Black Mouth Cur puppies sale was not able to find a home for all the dogs. These people are sometimes called "backyard" breeders. These are people who make some easy cash by breeding purebred Black Mouth Curs over and over then try to make easy cash by posting Black Mouth Curs puppies for sale in newspaper classified ads. Remember that most of these backyard Black Mouth Cur dog breeders don't know about breeding for favorable health and temperament qualities, and they don't know how to raise a properly socialized litter. Many of the Black Mouth Cur dog breeders wean litters from their mothers way too soon. Sometimes, a backyard Black Mouth Curs puppies breeder turns into small-time puppy mill to increase their supply so you can find Black Mouth Cur puppies for sale all the time in order for profits to grow.</p>

<p>What are puppy mills? A puppy mill is basically a purebred puppy factory farm where the puppies are just churned out as fast as they can in order to have, for example, as many Black Mouth Cur dogs for sale as possible. The dogs are kept in small cages and forced to breed at unhealthy rates… it's all about the money. Female dogs in puppy mills are made to have several litters per year, which is extremely dangerous and cruel. Usually Black Mouth Cur breeders pay little attention to the specific health and genetic diseases due to in-breeding, reluctantly they don’t inform whoever is looking for a Black Mouth Cur dog for sale about this problem. Genetic health testing is almost unheard of and mass-producing pets for profit is the bottom-line. In the worst puppy mills, horrifying conditions are the norm. How can you stop puppy mills? There is only one way. Take away their profits. Remember before you look for an a Black Mouth Cur sale, or Black Mouth Cur dogs for sale keep in mind that adoption is the most humane option!</p>
