Franklin's Mountain Cur Kennel

   Welcome to the Franklin's Mountain Cur website. 


   Here at Sarahsville, Ohio our aim is to continually improve our Original Mountain Curs.  We started out breeding with Thunder and females from the Tug-A-Jug ,Smith's Streak and Jukebox  line.   All three got some outstanding dogs , but Females from the Jukebox line crossed really well with Thunder.  This is where Franklin's ThunderSport, and Thunder's Lone Ranger came from. There is many more Great dogs out of all the many crosses we made out of Thunder
   We want our dogs to hunt fast and hard (not crazy), be outstanding tree dogs, using their eyes, ears, nose by winding sq that has never been on the ground.  They must be a family dog, a dog that wants to please you.  Basically, they are an all around dog.

  Franklin’s Original Mountain Cur Kennel will always be headed up by Franklin's Thunder breed Original Mountain Cur., They are all following in Thunders foot steps.

   ThunderSport has carried on the tradition of reproducing tree dogs. We we have gotten many World Champion Squirrel and Coon dogs out of ThunderSport.  ThunderSport is everything I was looking for in a Mountain Cur!

   Results are what counts and ThunderSport has won in the competition world everywhere.
   We invite you to look at our website to see our accomplishments, then stop by Sarahsville for a hunt or just to talk dogs. 
   If we are able to help in anyway, or if you have any questions email us, give us a call or stop by
