Question: what breeds of dogs have nubby tails?
Answer: There are only a couple of breeds that have naturally occurring bob tails. The rest of the breeds we see with short tails such as Boxers, Doberman Pinschers and Rottweilers, have all had their tails Docked. Docking is the surgical removal of the tail to conform to breed standard in a pure bred dog. While this practice is common in the United States for cosmetic reasons, it has been banned in many other countries (including the United Kingdom, France, Hungary,Belgium and many many more) as the practice is done purely for cosmetic reasons in most cases and has been ruled to be cruel and painful. In some of these countries, working dogs are an exception to these bans. They could sustain damage to themselves in the field, thus they are allowed to undergo the surgery for their own wellbeing.
