Hi there,

My puppy was born with a short stumpy tail. I am wondering if anybody else has a staff pup the same? He is pure bred, in fact, very well bred. I am wondering if this is unusal?

Thanks, would appreciate any comments

i had a friend with one like that and the vet said it was something to do with the placenta bursting and sealing round the tail basicaly docking it while in the womb. i wonder if this is what happened to your little one

I think it's a genetic throwback to the bull dog.

I have a staff with the same sort of tail, he's a very handsome boy and he knows it, and he gets many a comment that he could be a show dog. According to our vet it's not unusual for staff's to be born with little
tails. Staffie's are still the best dogs in the world no matter how long the tail!!!
