Hi everyone:). So we just got a new pup, 11wk old male black and rust. His name is Bane. The breeder we got him from said his tail and ears were done at the same time.  His ears are healing great and still in tape training. His tail however is worrisome to me. It is still bleeding a bit and resembles to the best I can explain, chicken skin. He is licking it a lot and so is our older male.

He's should had that done around two to five days of age :/ if I were you I would get him to the vet asap so it doesn't become infected.

I would get him in today if you can.... If that gets infected it's bad news and you don't want a sick puppy when you don't have to have a sick puppy.

Ya we are realizing that this was more if a rescue then an adoption.  He is adjusting soooo fast!  He is a bit timid of guys but I wouldn't say scared. And absolutely loves to chew socks!! On a foot or not. I'll keep posted

I hope you got him to the vet to make sure he's alright lol my lil man is the same way 

sometimes tails are redocked when ears are done - this can be for various reasons.... usually because they were docked too long at first.  Or they had scar tissue that needed to be removed. If this is done later, there is usually a shaved area.  A better picture of the tail itself would help determine if it is a problem or not.

Sorry puppy's make for a lot less cpu time!!! Bane did awesome at the vet :) I have now decided that his "breeder" shall never be mentioned in my home again! We found that despite he "worming him twice" he still has worms. Does anyone know about safeguard? Vet sais it's more of a anyone can order online.  His tail was infected, said a granuloma. Got some spray and its looking amazing!! He also has an ear infection witch has stopped the training of his ears, however they are standing awesome! The vet agreed that there was definitly someone mean in his life and he seems like we are the only people he gas ever really socialized with.  Thanks for all the advice guys! This is a great place to be!

Fitzmar- I must say you have some amazing looking dobies!!!  Vet did say that because from birth till we got him, bane was always in the same "outbuilding" with all his siblings that the tail never got the chance to heal correctly.
