NORWAY — Bentley is a male Black Mouth Cur that is just a year old. He is a good dog that is ready to become a great pet.

When Bentley is outside in the kennel, he does not bark, even when the other dogs around him are excited. His handler says he listens well and is very trainable.

This large dog is playful but is not a good choice for a family with small children because he is very muscular and powerful. He likes to ride in the car and he simply melts when his handler scratches his cheeks.

Black Mouth Curs are known to be rugged, dependable and kind-hearted. They are affectionate and very protective of family members.

The best home for Bentley is with active people who enjoy the outdoors. He needs lots of exercise and will be very happy joining in all adventures.
