Various Cur Breed Standards
With Regards To Tail Length

Most of the Cur breeds have and are allowed a natural bobtail within their various standards.  The following is a list of many of the breeds.

Black Mouth Cur

The tail can be quite lengthy. Many are born with a short tail or have a docked tail.
The tail is set on low and may be any length.

Canadian Cur

The tail is set low and either naturally bobbed or of any length.

Kemmer Stock Mountain Cur

Preferred natural bob or bobbed but full length with high carriage is permitted

History tells us that there are have been short tail dogs in Georgia since Oglethorp brought his jailed  criminals to settle there. When settlers moved down the Appalachian Mts. they found these natural short tail dogs. They have been around ever since.

Although there are some breeds of cur dogs that have long tails. This in no way makes a dog better or worse. Our breed standard says that tail length should be natural bob or bobbed but full length not objectionable. Breed for ability first and always.

Leopard Cur

The tail is set on low and may be any length.

Mountain View Cur

Natural bob or docked preferred. Docking should leave enough tail to have a handle when grown.

Mountain Cur

The tail is set low and either naturally bobbed or of medium length.
