I've started seeing more and more chihuahuas with short tails...
I've been seeing more and more chihuahuas with short tails. I know some are docked or amputated, but I've also heard that some are born with the "Bobtail" gene, in which they have a naturally short tail.
Why are people having them docked, though? I know it's not the dog's fault. Whoever had it docked is at fault. Yes, it may look "Cute", but it doesn't look like a chihuahua! If you want a dog with a "Cute" tail, then why cut the tail off of a chihuahua, which should have a long tail? Why not get a min pin or corgi?
I don't have anything against the owners of docked chihuahuas, but i do have a problem with whoever is doing it to the dog. And again, there's nothing wrong with the dog. He or She probably would've preferred to keep his or her tail.
Again, if you think a short tail looks cute, than don't dock a chihuahua, get a min pin or corgi! The standards of these dogs is a docked tail!
