UKC Announces Changes in Co-Ownership Registration to begin April 15, 2013

Sole Signatory Registration will continue to be optional, if received by UKC on or before April 14, 2013. Beginning April 15, 2013, the Sole Signatory Registration will be mandatory, and a Sole Signatory will then be required for all litters and dogs registered to more than one individual. Any “and/or” partnerships established prior to April 15, 2013, will remain in effect and will continue to hold true for that dog until said dog’s UKC Registration Record is changed.

Previous Installments 

Curs were developed by early settlers in the southern and western United States as all-purpose dogs. Curs are excellent tree dogs, used to hunt squirrel, coon, mountain lion, and bear. They are used in Louisiana and Texas to hunt wild hogs. They also serve as outstanding stock dogs.

The Feist breeds are descended from the terriers brought over by English miners and other working class immigrants. These terriers probably included crosses between the Smooth Fox Terrier, the Manchester Terrier and the now extinct white English Terrier. Some of these dogs were crossed with Whippets or Italian Greyhounds (for speed) and Beagles (for hunting ability). Eventually, these tough little terriers evolved into today's squirrel hunting Feists.
