What you have is what they come with..... It should not have been altered.... And they have their own personality. I have a Mini Australian Shepherd. Steele- blue merle, if you search his name a this site, there is a picture of him. I wouldn't change him for the world!

Some aussies are born with naturally docked tails, however, most are not. Most aussies are born WITH a tail and the breeder will have them docked (along with dewclaws removed) at 3-5 days. After this time, it is no longer considered a docking but an amputation.

Most breeders will bob the tail just a few days after the birth. I have two Aussies and their tails are bobbed. I have only seen a few Aussie's that did not have the bobbed tail.

Enjoy your Aussie - they are the best dogs in the world!

tail docking - sad

Dogs communicate to other dogs and to us through their tails. It's really sad when they lose this means of communication.
