Hey there! I was wondering if you’ve ever encountered a German Shepherd with a short/docked tail? My family got my shepherd a little over a year ago and she’s an amazing dog, incredibly loyal and playful. The only odd thing about her is that she doesn’t have a tail. The woman that we bought her from didn’t speak much English and I wasn’t going to reject my baby because she didn’t have a tail. We saw both parents and they had tails but idk if it was just a mutation or they cut it… thoughts?

It’s possible that it’s a mutation, or that the dog had happy tail and needed amputation, or that there was some injury or cancer associated with it. Who knows!
