Bobbed, Never Docked.

The Boston terrier is a bobbed breed, not a Docked breed.

That is, he is born with a short tail due to his genes, not because someone cut off any portion of his tail.

The Airedale gets along well with other dogs in his household, as long as he is properly socialized and trained. He can be aggressive, however, with strange dogs that he perceives as threatening.

Final Verdict. Pig ears in general are a lot better than rawhides. Rawhides do clean the teeth better, but the choking hazards of these outweigh those dental benefits. And pig ears are still a great treat to keep your pup's teeth and gums healthy!

The truth is, as long as they are fed responsibly, pig ears are a safe and healthy treat! Pig ears are a nutritious alternative to rawhide or other less than natural dog chews. Plus, they're a great source of protein and essential nutrients to compliment your dog's regular diet.

It's commonly believed that dogs wag their tails to convey that they are happy and friendly, but this isn't exactly true.

Dogs do use their tails to communicate, though a wagging tail doesn't always mean, "Come pet me!" Dogs have a kind of language that's based on the position and motion of their tails.

No problem. These dogs go without tails (or much of a tail, anyway), and they like it that way.

While many dog breeds have traditionally had their tails docked, these 7 breeds are born without a wagger.

They include the French bulldog, Boston terrier, Welsh corgi, and some lesser-known beauties, too.
