    How strange. I never got this tag @desertskybulldogs!!! Linus has grown into his tail!! Altho it is still curly at the tip - like somebody made a question mark and stuck it on his bum!!!

    @Rural mystic well I don't know who your breeder is and don't want to know, but you DO NOT dock bully tails, period!

    A pump handle tail is the standard on an AmStaff, Staffy or APBT. I have seen them on some OEB's whose tails weren't docked. May be less common on EB's but I'm not sure

    A pump handle tail just means it resembles the old fashioned pump handle on a well.
    Somewhat short in comarison to length of dog and not curled or carried and held over the back

    On OEB's the standard is different for tails than an EB. On OEB's A pump handle is preffered as long as it is carried low and not over the back, but screw tails and docked tails are acceptable.

    On OEB's it seems like it depends on the organization doing the registration. Some allow for docked others consider it a fault and some a disqualification.

    How wonderful! Bulldogs run in your blood!

    I was reading your post from last year . I am getting a miniature English bulldog puppy from a reputable breeder . The puppy is healthy but was born without a tail . He said its not a problem . Is your bulldog doing OK without a tail ? Any worries on my behalf

    When I was looking for my bulldog that was always a no no for me if I saw tails docked I didn't even contact them. Yes they all have tails. But I've never seen one with a tail like any other dog. Usually shorter right?

    Hello,

    While all (most) puppies are born with tails, just like ears, there are preferred types as well as fault types. Check the BCA standards for what the breed is suppose to look like.

    Good Day~
