Although it is a rather barbaric act, some owners choose to cut their dog’s tail. Fortunately, this is something punishable by law, unless it is done for therapeutic purposes. And for those who absolutely want dogs without a tail, there are dog breeds that are born naturally without this attribute. So here are 8 dog breeds that are naturally tailless, or more specifically, have a tail so short it looks like they don’t.
8. The Boston Terrier
The Boston Terrier has been a very popular tailless breed since its inception just over a century ago. They were originally bred to be fighting dogs, but today they are gentle and loving companions. This breed is also known for inspiring many dog tuxedo brands, earning them the nickname “American Gentleman.”
