Bay Dogs - Curs and Cur Breeds
The word "cur" dates from the Middle English of the 13th century derives from the word "curren", meaning "to growl" - when saying word "Cur" actually sounds like a growl. Many Curs and Cur Breeds have been given the encompassing title of Bay Dogs. A cur dog is a non specific or a mixture of different breeds of dogs. Bay dogs are popular in America and Australia and the different types were descended from European dogs brought over by immigrants. These cross breeds of dogs were then mixed with the native dogs with the intention of producing the qualities of hunting dogs and to some extent herding dogs combining features of speed, power, and endurance. Curs often have a wide chest and very little body fat.
