I have heard that it is quite difficult to find an Aussie who has not had their tail docked (as it is usually done at such a young age). I am looking to get a female Aussie in the near future and was wondering if anyone had some suggestions of how I might go about getting one that does not have its tail docked. Is the only solution speaking to a breeder before the puppies are born?
Also, is there any known problems with an Aussie having a full tail (apart from getting waste stuck in it from time to time)?
