    Hey Lucky are you splinting the tail...I did a splint on a newfie baby tail and it healed perfect.

    I use velband, which is soft cotton like stuff, comes in a roll and I used horse vetwrap ( all the stuff we use for wrapping our horses legs when we go cutting or do Polo)....not tight. It stayed on and had to be replaced when it slid a little. But i got the bandaging down to a fine art and it stayed..that dog went on to show. Mind you newfie tails are a little hairier, but we could not feel a bump

    Lucky Lady, my friend breeds Australian Bull Dogs. They had a magnificent Stud, and bought their Dam cheaply, as her tail was broken in whelping box like your pup. They have gone on to have 4 beautiful litters in past 10 yrs, I know that they got the Dam cheaper coz of the kinked tail, (ended up like a curly pig tail) but had the letter your vet suggests, so not that much cheaper! Seriously, $500 cheaper. That was all. As they could still breed fantastic pups with great lineage from her.

    Do DDB ever get docked tails, historically at all?

    no docked tails..
    I was hoping the vet would just dock his tail but
    the vet said it could just fix itself..

    I read up I should put a bit of a paddle pop stick in the bandage
    to keep it in place ??
    I would have to watch pup real careful cause mum
    takes everything off the pups I put on..
    Collars / nail polish ect .....

    I reckon you'd need some sort of rod - like a paddle pop stick or bit of fibreglass tent pole or maybe a piece of ruler, and you'd apply a layer of bandage then the splint - something stiff to hold it straight and some more layers of bandage.

    But you're right, it would be really hard to stop the rest of them "fixing" it for you.

    I don't see why a tail damaged by someone else - should mean he needs to go on limited register. Ie it's not genetic that someone broke his tail - we hope.
