I have looked through the photos of giant schnauzers breeders in Australia and I’ve noticed a few really beautiful dogs on their web site. The most beautiful dogs were those with the cropped ears and docked tails. They look gorgeous!
Unfortunately tail docking is prohibited in Australia so I am thinking of importing the schnauzer puppy from New Zealand where tail docking is legal. The reason why this is important to me is that certain breeds with undocked tail look really different and not very attractive (for example German boxer or German schnauzer).
Don’t take me wrong, I am against animal cruelty and tail docking with garden shears but I fully support this if it’s done by veterinarian and with anaesthetic. I know that there are many people who think the opposite, but my argument is: How ethical is to remove the animal’s reproductive organs but not tail?
Is tail docking illegal in Western Australia as well? Any suggestion (except NZ) where to buy a giant schnauzer puppy with legally docked tail?
