About Spoon River Blackmouths

      Blackmouth Curs for hunting, companionship or just about anything you can think of. We love them and will have puppies ready for new homes around June 2014.

Our Lucy was a very, very early starting tree dog and is a pleasure to hunt squirrels and raccoons with. I also use her for coyote decoy work and she is a great protector of our property and a companion to my children.

We will be crossing Lucy and Super Trooper again next spring. Puppies will be available next summer 2014. We love to talk Blackmouths so call for details or to reserve a puppy.

We are so proud of Andrew and his family. We first got to know Andrew and his family about 2yrs. ago. When they purchased Lucy as a puppy from us. Lucy is a product of our breeding program. She is out of Knierim's Yeller Duke and Hobbs C.J. To give you just a little idea of the kind of stock Lucy comes from. The 1st. year of Duke's hunting career, he treed 105 by himself his 1st. season. He then went on to produce some truly amazing dogs. Hobb's C.J. is a exceptional coon and squirrel dog. She scent hunts, she runs with her nose in the wind like a bird-dog. C.J. screens the trees and limbs, looking from game. She has been and is one of the greatest building blocks of our breeding program.
Now Lucy is carrying on a new generation of these great dogs. We knew Lucy was special when she caught and killed her 1st. squirrel at the young age of 10 weeks old. She is doing what comes natural to her. Running, catching, treeing and killing all kinds of game. Not only is Lucy a tremedous hunting dog, she is also a loving and protective family dog. She has even foiled a attempted burglary on the Bottrell family. Help the jail two wanted felons. Lucy truly is the total package. And as for the daddy(Knierim's Super Trooper), he is simply a game-getter deluxe. Trooper is now passing his wonderful traits on to his puppies. If you have any questions, about the parents--grandparents and even great grandparents of these puppies. Please feel free to give me a call (217)536-9999 or (217)690-2900 cell. I'll help you in anyway that I can. I just don't think you could go wrong with this combination of (Andrew Bottrell) A wonderful Christian young man. and his dogs who love to hunt. Bro. Kevin Knierim
