The Curly Coated Retriever, also known as Curly or CCR, is a breed of dog originally bred in England. The Curly is an active, well-muscled dog bred for upland bird and waterfowl hunting. A well-bred Curly will appear slightly leggy but is actually slightly longer than tall. It is balanced and agile with a significant air of endurance, strength, and grace. The Curly Coated Retriever was originally developed as a gun dog and their temperament and conformation reflect this purpose.
