    *DO NOT AMPUTATE* Your bully has a beautiful tail, that some of us would die for. Gizmo had an INVERTED Corkscrew tail, (It was growing back INTO the body) that we HAD to have Amputated, I can NOT tell you how awful that surgery was (Necessary but STILL Awful) When we got the 'Puppy Bug' the 1st thing I was asking breeders - I want to see the tail ! because I never wanted to go through that again with another bully ! ! ! !

    Again... DO NOT AMPUTATE that tail as its not medically necessary. its an Awful Awful surgery.

    Oh please don't do anything to her tail. Dublin is about 90% white and she has a longer tail that goes into a point. Look at that face so sweet. Bullies have enough issues to deal with and putting them through surgery that they don't need is never good. I bet you will not get one post on here that will condone any tail shortening for cosmetic reasons.

    Actually you will be surprised to learn that your bully SHOULD have a tail according to the BCA standard. If I ever got into showing, one of the things I would look for is a nice tail! I have 6 bullies, 1 with tail (Ch Trimbull lines) 3 with stubs, and two corkscrews.

    Hey our bullys have sort of similar tails, I'm starting to believe its a "white" bulldog thing. Odd but that's usually where I see longer tails.

    I won't be removing it, you guys convinced me its not worth the hassle or trouble or pain for bully

    Ummm yeah bullies with a tail is a standard. Their tails are not supposed to be amputated ever. Some have natural corkscrew tails but some do not. Cutty has a perfect piggy tail and Miila has a long one, I love them both and seeing Miilas wiggle makes my heart melt. You would be nuts to not want that. Besides I HATE to see any dog with their tail amputated, never understood it, never will. Just mean and cruel for no reason.

    It is not a "white" bulldog thing. I have a white bull dog who has a cinnamon bun tail! It's just a genetic thing, color has nothing to do with it!!!!!!

    Stig, my mostly white bully, has a corkscrew tail. Punkin, who has red fur, has a 2-inch straight one. And it's always a delight seeing Punkin wag his short tail of his. Can't help but smile everytime you see it.

    Your bully has a beautiful tail. You'll learn to appreciate it soon enough.

    Thats a perfect Bully tail!!!
    This 100%, if you want a small tail for show reasons, then make sure you go with a breeder that has show bullies with the small tail. Leave their poor tails alone.
