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.

Lots of breeds have curly tails. Spitzes in particular but it's common in a lot of breeds

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.

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.
