    What are some breeds with curly tails?

    I've seen quite a few mixed breeds lately with curled tails...more off to one side than curled straight up over the back or held like a sickle. Besides the Chow and the Shar Pei what are some other breeds that carry their tails in a natural curl?

    Most spitz breeds do, right? Malamutes and huskies...etc.

    do you mean curly tails that are fluffy? Bushy? Thin? Never can be straightened? There are many possibilities. It depends, are you thinking of a mutt? Because a mutt can have 2 different curly-tailed dogs and end up having a combination of the two.

    Lhasa apsos have curly tails. :-) Kind of a corkscrew to the side.

    I'm not sure what you mean by curly, but alot of Bostons are born with a corkscrew tail. Similar to a pig actually only covered in fur.

    Malamutes do, huskies do not.
    Some huskies do actually carry their tails in a curl. It's not a disqualifying fault, but it's a fault nonetheless. They shouldn't have curls, but many do!

    Coton de Tulear

    Their tails curl when raised, but are straight at rest or when down. When really excited/aroused - the tail can curl to a circle shape.
