Subject: Possible Mountain Curr (male, fixed)

Hi Friends,

We as a family have decided, after years of trying to make it work, that our best friend is not happy with us. When we thought it through and took the point of view of Artimus, we realized we would want to live somewhere else, if we were him.

He is a good dog, a great dog. He is eager to learn and to please. He's very affectionate and excited to meet new people. He likes fetch ok, but his favorite is tug and playing with other dogs, and especially running. He's a great walker and a great trail runner, after a block or so he's very soft on the leash and very responsive. ( Those first few blocks are just too exciting to not pull some) In just a few runs we had left and right as commands for when the trails split, though it's been awhile since we did that.

Thing is, he's a runner and a fence climber and we have dished out hundreds on radio collars and fence additions, and we still chase him around about once a week. He needs either a very disciplined owner who can keep him in and take him out for runs, or a piece of land he can run around on, with no real fences. Something more woodsy or country.

This isn't us giving up, but us realizing we can't give him what he needs, and we are worried he's depressed, especially when he's stuck inside all day or.... On a chain. (We know, it sucks.)

We believe he's a Mountain Curr, which is an actual breed of dog, so if you know anyone who wants an enthusiastic hunting dog, I believe, based on his behavior and his breed, he would be perfect. When he picks up a trail he's tenacious and very persistent.

No we don't want to drop him at Mckamey or pet placement center, we have already talked to them, they don't need the extra work.


If you could help in anyway by taking him or know someone who would like to have him, we would appreciate it.
