Charlie is a black mouth cur, though she is often mistaken for an Anatolian shepherd or a Rhodesian ridgeback.

Curs hail from the southern U.S. and have historically been used to tree game from squirrels to bears or to hunt hogs.

The perfect hound, Charlie’s favorite thing in the world to do is sniff. She put her expert nose to good use this week by discovering the location of an equally exploration-minded group, who this weekend will be learning how to find treasure using a smartphone app.
