I know and she expressed her opinion of dislike in tails outside of the stubby look. That was her reason for this. But again this was just conversation. I do remember one time that a friend of mine took her 9mth old poodle to the vet and he actually cut it down to a stub and omg that little girl was in so much pain not to mention that it got infected. Now the vet said that was an unusual request however he did do it. But the owner (new) to the puppy did not like that it was a poodle with a long tail. I felt bad for the puppy but the new owner was happy once healed. People do the craziest things to make an animal look what they believe to be normal.
I was on vacation with family and we met this lady while at the hotel. My nephew said that is sooooooooooo mean to the lady and she gave him the lecture of how puppies do not feel pain like a older dog would as long as it is done in the first three days of their life.
How do they not feel pain as a baby?? Must cause their only a few days old doesn't mean they don't have feelings I wouldn't be able to alter my animals for looks only altering done here is spay or neuter poor babies

tail pocket issues - like if the pocket is especially deep. My vet told me that he cuts at least one bully tail every month due to the owner not cleaning them properly
Matilda was from a breeder and has her tail. The breeder stressed pocket-cleanliness, so it hasn't been an issue. But I can definitely understand why a breeder would just cut them - not everyone is as responsible as we are and it's such a hard area to keep clean.
EDIT: I've never heard of anyone cutting a BULLY's tail for looks... just the tail-pocket issue!
Some breed of dogs have "docked" tails. If the tails are not naturally docked, meaning born short, then the tails will be docked at birth. We used to raise Australian Shepherds many years ago when I was a child. While many of the pups would be born with short tails, if one wasn't then my dad would dock it. The pup would cry a bit, but not too bad so I don't think it was too terrible. I had heard of the string method before, too. While it does work, it seems much worse to me. I suppose tail docking a pup is similar to circumcising a baby. It does hurt, but they don't remember it - sorry, but that's kind of the best comparison I can think of. Now, as far as the EB breed, according to our breeder, all tails are naturally docked but can be different lengths or types and should not be altered in any way, even if long. As an adult dog, their tails may be surgically removed if there is a real problem keeping their tail pockets clean and healthy.

Olde English Bulldogges normally get their tails docked when they are 2 or 3 days old. Normally it is docked to a two and a half inch to 3 inch "pump handle". We are getting an OEB puppy and would have to select that puppy when it is still at the rodent stage to avoid docking. If the puppy is born with a short straight tail which rarely happens with OEBs, then the breeder won't have it docked. I was offended by this docking practice and talked with 3 breeders about it. They all do it automatically.
Omg u can not judge the length of their tails as a baby litterally Porkchops tail was like 8 inches long as a puppy n looked retarded but she's grown into it n it's perfect for her now
