Are you going to have your show prospect docked?

Ooooh, I'm so excited for you, even if it may be over a year away.  They are gorgeous dogs!!

What happens if Serbia bans docking in the meantime?  It says in the standard that "An undocked tail should be severely penalized." -  seems like that would make it hard for an undocked import to go very far unless his other qualities were too stunning to ignore.

Each requirement (breeding code of ethics) is different according to each boxer club, I got a LONG explanation on why too!!  It boils down to Politics with the German Boxer Club.

I plan on showing it with Natural Ears, docked tail.

I have to see what the rules are on the docking when I get the pup.  If there is a ban, then I would have to get one with a tail, and then find a vet that would do an "anputation".   :eek:  Don't freak, if that is the case, then we may have to pass on the pup.   We shall cross that bridge when it gets here.  All things to take into consideration.

If we get one with a tail, and there is nothing to do, then hey, we will love it as a pet pup, and be proud of him!   Maybe not do show, and train in other working categories!

I think they have some good-looking dogs.  Good choice!

The Atibox is held in Serbia this year, and they have 7 dogs from their Kennel entering.
