I have asked about this before and have been scouring the internet, I am going to call around to some vets tomorrow, but if anyone can help me here, I would appreciate it.
I am getting a puppy from a good breeder, she health tests, has been breeding for a long time, she raises the puppies in her home. The puppies are half golden retreiver(mom), half toy poodle. (please do not comment on the mix, I know, I know)
One of the puppies in a litter of five was born without a tail. she has everything else in working order and the breeder has not seen this before. The vet she works with says the puppy seems fine. I am totally fine with the no tail if that is the only problem. Are there other problems associated with this? The breeder is a few hours away, we are going next week to see the dogs and make our final decision between this one, or her sister. thanks, guys
