Curly Coated Retriever
The Curly-Coated Retriever is a strong, smart, upstanding dog showing activity, endurance and intelligence. Their body is covered with a tightly curled coat which does not need trimming, supposedly descended from the Poodle. They are medium to large sized dogs, the size of any Labrador retriever, with a muscular body and strong fore and hind limbs. Their entire body except for their face and paws (and lower legs) are covered in tightly curled ringlets, which make it an exceptional water dog as their fur does not need drying after a jump in the lake. They have dark, almond shaped eyes and ringlet-covered drop ears. They have deep chests, long tails and big hearts. Curly-Coated Retrievers have an excellent nose and a good memory. Bred for retrieving quail and waterfowl, they are superb swimmers with great stamina and they know how to carry dead or wounded animals gently in their mouth. Curly-Coated Retrievers have also been known to work over difficult terrain, quite often in the Australian outback or wilds of New Zealand. They are even tempered, immensely alert when at work, and very determined in what they do. They can be playful, energetic, and adaptable to their owner's temperament. Although slightly reserved with strangers, they remain loyal and friendly to friends and family.
