    Just because a dog quits doesn't mean he's a cur.Bobby Hall said Bullyson quit but also said he considered him to be a very game animal.

    Well I'll be damned Limey, that's why people are spending their hard earned cash on cur bred dogs off the likes of this one.

    My mentor would be really pissed if I told him that I was going to breed to a dog that quit or one who's sire or dam had quit. Maybe if I tell him that we have been misinterpreting the cajun rule book, I can finally find a well bred cur to breed to.

    LOL @ therealjudge.. Curs are good for a couple of things. House pets, and losing... If someone is stupid enough not to pick up a dog in shock, or whatever, thats on the handler... Big difference between one that stops (or curs), opposed to one that cant go. Of course thats what I have read.

    Anyway, lets try and keep this thread on topic. I'm sure there are plenty of threads that define what a cur is.

    if the dog quits like you described he should have been picked up before he got that far behind . you have to know when to pick up and not let your pride get in the way it's called and push the dog more than it could go . it's called sportsmanship . what you describe is'nt sportsmanship .

    Sadly, money is more important to most than sportsmanship. Thats why some people will leave one down to long, they hope the other will quit on top.

    A dog that has been given a great life, great medical attention, great feed and a great keep and then quits is a cur. If you treat a dog like shit and expect it to go out deadgame it will most likely quit and that makes you a bad owner and a bad judge of weather or not the dog is game or cur as the same dog in better circumstances may have been 10 times more for someone else. Stop throwing the words Game and Cur around so loosley as most wouldn't know or have the experience to judge it based on their limited knowlege gained from textbook and internet dogging.

    So if a dog is taken to deeeep water and proves itself game, then comes out again and quits.....doing so from a beating by a better hog....is that deep game dog a cur....what if he was retired and no one ever knew he would quit....Lots of variables.


    Boils down to breed the best and gamest you got. However dont breed cold dog or rank curs.....Rank cur quits on top in my eyes. Cur stands the line.


    Interesting topic as it can be deeper then just words and simple meanings. Lots of things can happen and the old ad lib "Every dog has their day" holds true in most all performance dogs.

    To ask what ifs is pointless, thats like saying "What if I bred my dog 10 more times, maybe it would be a ROM" or "What if I would have had a better keep?", a retired dog should stay that way and prove itself in the broodpen alone. If a well kept dog quits at any time during its career it is a cur.

    If the dog quits for no other reason that just to quit, its a cur. That means the dog had proper handling, keep, its of age, and so forth. If it quits because of a shitty handler that doesnt follow those few things right, then someone pit side will most likely be able to tell the difference, and may "acquire" the dog for another day, or breeding purposes. If he retires a winner, never having quit, he cant be called a cur! most may speculate that the dog may be a cur, but oh well...
    May be a few variables, but thats where experience of the handler comes into play IMO of course...
