  • You can crop it if you want if the look of its tail bothers you i will also fix her because the traits will be passed on to the pups

    • I did a breeding with a correct Pocket Daxline female to an exotic male with no tail and she yielded 11 pups all full tails, A friend of mine did a breeding that same year to Marcelo and Remy Blood and two dogs came out exotic looking and screw tails. I think if within the peds there was any type of outcrosses it will eventually show in future breeding!!
  • A curly tail isn’t like curly hair-a simple variant trait that is not particularly notable or distinctive, and a curled tail actually occurs due to a distinctive deviation from the norm in the development of the spine. It is important to remember that the tail of the dog contains bone and cartilage and is an extension of the spine itself, and not just something that is stuck onto the back as an afterthought!

    The term used for the deviation that causes a curled tail is hemivertebrae, and it is a congenital anomaly that causes vertebrae to develop in a wedge-shape and affect the angle of the spin, its spacing, and consequently the shape of the tail. This condition can lead to neurological problems when it occurs further up the spine, but generally and in dogs where the curled tail is considered a desirable breed trait, only affects the tail.
