Yes, I would say so, or, to turn it around, curs and fiest as we know them today are included in the meaning accepted at the time. Remember most "breeds" are only a hundred or two years old. . Most of those breeds you mentioned,(except for those not usually docked?) descend from the Gaelic, Germanic, and Celtic breeds of shepherd, hunting, and defense type of dogs . In other words, items of value of the subject classes, easily identified and taxed.
I have been raising Busher bred curs around 15 years and can count on one hand the number of pups out of around 50 that aren't normally natural bob.
Boxers, Dobermans, Pits, American Bulls, Weimaraner 90% of them are born long tailed. Do people cut them to identify them as curs and feist by your original definition?
