    If you are looking for a docked dog, may be better that you go through rescue..

    You will struggle to get a docked puppy, since it was made illegal.

    Thanks for the link. I have been looking at rescues as i knew it would be hard to get a puppy docked uless it came from Ireland. Ive emailed some rescues but for some reason they dont seem to rush to get back to you x

    Sometimes they are just very busy, may be better if you gave them a ring and if engaged keep trying :)

    Surely the dog being responsibly breed from health and temperament tested parents, is far more important than whether or not it has a tail?

    Its now illegal, so people need to accept this fact, and not look at ways of getting around the law.

    But people buy certain breeds because they like the look of them - and a long tail makes the outline of the dog totally different. I like the look of Rotties and Pembroke Corgis with tails, but the undocked Boxers and Mini Schnauzers I have seen looked totally different and did not appeal for some reason.

    With the end to docking some breeds will become less fashionable, as happened when cropping was abolished over 100 years ago

    hi just wondered if you have found your rottie yet. if not does it really have to have a docked tail as there is a rottie with tail who is due to be put to sleep on tue would you not think about him to save him. if you want to see him he is on a thread named urgent can anyone help in the rescue section.

    I have always owned new york city sian escorts Newmar products, which I always enjoyed. My family took a year+ off from new york city asian escort RVing (sold the DSDP) and now realize we miss it and want to consider getting back in. I guess I am that guy no one ever claims exists... I am probably new york city escorts going to return to a gasser from the DP. For me, it simply comes down to expense. The DP was really nice, but as a family RV, it was just too expensive. The KS/W22 I owned was more the adequate for our needs (we are just vacation/campers). The new york city escort problem is, in the past year+, RVs have only gotten more expensive from Newmar. Even the nice gassers from Newmar are now very expensive
