our new baby zeus
Hi, why are rottweilers tails cropped, as we have a ten week old pup and it's not done, do we need to have it done for any reason?
Zeus is adorable - a real little man!
If the tail is going to be cropped it's usually done at around 3 days old, it's not something you want to do later on.
Although tail-cropping has been part of the breed standard for quite some time, in Germany it's now no longer required and hopefully that practice will extend across the globe.
There is no physical reason to crop your pups' tail and although it is still required here in the US, in the UK the Kennel Club breed standard permits docked or undocked tails.
Zeus is just perfect the way he is :o)
