What Breed Is This

353 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Tim Martens
Someone over on the Leerburg site is asking about a GSD with a docked tail. I have seen a few pictures from various countries (France & Great Britain come to mind) of what looks like a GSD but has no tail. In most of the pictures I have seen, the dogs seem to be working police dogs. Does anyone know what this breed is? If they are GSDs, does anyone know why the tails are docked?

So its not dogs who have either injured their tail or chewed it off?

Grim has one that is missing the last, I guess. 3 inhces or so from an injury but I have seen others with just a tuft - once they hurt it they tend to bother it / not leave it alone.

I recall a Malinois at a nearby police department was self destructive-mainly when he was in the police car waiting for action.
