Cur Dogs

Types of Curs in the Cur Family

Cur dogs are specialized multipurpose working/hunting dogs from the southern USA. Each Cur breed or type is unique. Curs are usually not recognized as show dogs, but developed solely for their hunting ability. As a result, most of the Cur breeds are types rather than breeds, i.e. one of these dogs can be recognized as a certain type of Cur but the appearance standard is extremely flexible, enough so that a complete breed appearance standard is difficult to create. The name "Cur" means a mongrel dog, and since Curs were developed from a large variety of dogs, that is how they got their name. Cur dogs are not the result of random cross breeding. You cannot "make" a Cur dog. Curs are specialized working dogs bred for ability by breeding the best to the best, based on individual performance and usually regardless of the actual breed. Several kennel clubs do however, register various Cur breeds based on their ancestry (bloodlines), and several lines are recognized within each breed. The United Kennel Club has an active registration program and competition hunting program for these dogs. This is a list of Cur breeds and types that have developed over the years.
