The Vet told me NOT to doc the tail on a mixed breed it was unnessary for the dog to have it done. They are 6 weeks old and real cute but I think I should have done it anyways. Any thought on tails... good or bad
Thanks Ann

I was asking to you think I made a good decision on NOT getting the tails docked because they are a mixed breed. I know at 3 -5 days old they get the tails and dew claws done. Thanks for chewing me out... Later
