Copper needs right dog (3)


I believe the answer is:


'dog' is the definition.
(both can mean a despicable person)

'copper needs right' is the wordplay.
'copper' becomes 'cu' (chemical symbol).
'needs' says to put letters next to each other.
'right' becomes 'r' (common abbreviation).

(Other definitions for cur that I've seen before include "Mongrel - cowardly person" , "Vicious dog" , "Vile dog" , "Worthless or bad-tempered dog" , "Wretch" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
