Hello! I brought my little girl home from Germany and over there the tails are kept! Oh my ... I always wanted a boxer and was not sure about the long tail. I went to the Boxer Klub for many weekends before getting use to it. My little girl kept hers...even when I got back to the US! Does anyone else have a long tail? I have heard that they can not be shown in the AKC with a long tail... but I kept her natural just like her family! *smile* Just wondering. The tip is white... and wow! What power those tails have. I now know why they docked em!
