Hello everyone, my first post! I was recently given an English bulldog (I hope) from a friend of mine. He has a straight long tail, which I have never seen, at least here in the US. The puppy’s parents both had a short screw tail. Anyone else have one with a long straight tail? I was kind of turned off by it st first, but now I love seeing it wag when he is happy! Doesn’t look normal lol but it gives him character. Anyone have info on the tail? I’ve noticed a good amount from UK actually have a straight tail as well.

That's a long tail for sure but I think he's just a lucky bulldog, you too.

WOW... he is gorgeous! Look at those paws!! Tail, what tail?? :giggle:

It is better for it to be long, less tail pocket issues ... it is more common in UK

:welcome3: to EBN

I have tail pocket issues with Nyala, trust me I would definitely no worry if she had such a tail!

And yes.... what a beautiful furball.

Looks like the proximal half is a screw tail. I agree with the others... less/no issues with keeping a tailpocket clean! Chomper is a great looking boy and those paws! How old is he?

Thank you all for the kind words! Really puts me at ease with his tail, since I’m not use to seeing it. Chomper is about to be 3 months! Full of energy ��

001.JPG [MENTION=18183]Danielj23[/MENTION] As you can see, Maude has a "half a tail". I call it her happy tail, because she can wag it, as opposed to her full sister, who has a small crook, and can barely move it! Sometimes when an EBD is born with a tail like Maude's or your beautiful boy Chomper, a "breeder" will dock the tail. There are more born with tails, than we know!

He is gorgeous, and his tail is unique! Like you said, it's cute when he wags it!

This is Tucker's tail:

This is Sophie's tail. Poor girl had it cut off too close as a baby. She doesn't even have a nub. She shakes her whole butt to make up for it!
