I read a dodgy sounding for sale add in my local rag for Cane Corso puppies and it got me wondering about them so i did a bit of reading up.
What gets me is the actual Breed standard seems to be saying the tail should be docked at the 4th vertabrae........but it never says why ?? They say the ears can be left as natural......but no mention of leaving the tail on.
I understand if a pup has a knotted or deformed tail at birth. But are these breeds prone to tail issues at a later age ??
I'm not trying to start a tail docking debate...even though i think its disgusting if not done for medical reasons....i'm just wondering about this certain breed.
