Beans has been mutilated. You wouldn't happen to be responsible for that now, right?

Unless they were Beans' parents' owners, no.

Corgis tend to get docked within the first week after birth, and few people will part with a pup before 8 weeks.

This. Also, I think this was at one time a functional thing. To those who do not know, Corgis, believe it or not, are herding dogs. I had no idea they were herding dogs until I adopted a 7 month old pure bred Pembrok Welsh Corgi. The functionality is them not getting their tail stomped while herding. And their herding instinct is strong. Nothing gets past this little dog.

Dwarfism for corgis is also a functional trait - being so low to the ground meant that cattle would have difficulties kicking them in the face (which they evolved to do against predators that notably did not have short legs, putting their hooves at perfect head-kicking height).

Of course, when they aren't herding animals and therefore not are risking a hoof to the skull, dwarfism comes with its own set of problems that they otherwise wouldn't have.

Yea, he was already docked by the time I first saw him.

I never understand how there are so many docked tails still. It's been illegal for years. Who is doing it?

People who care more about being pretentious and image than the welfare of their pets.

Some Pembroke Corgis are born without tails, but most have them docked since it is part of the breed standard.

It's only a "breed standard" because obnoxious humans made it so. I bet if that dog could talk at the moment of mutilation it would tell the dumbass holding the knife to back the fuck off.

Very compelling with the lil tail nub wagging! 10/10 good dog!

Does the comment section know Welsh Corgi Pembrokes can be born without a tail I wonder? It's illegal to dock the tail in most countries and you still see Pembrokes without tails, half-tails and full tails. Cardigans always have full tails. The distant cousin to the Welsh Corgi, The Swedish Vallhund, can also be born with or without a tail.

Okay well beans is pretty much the fuckin’ best.

Saw this posted a day or so ago with a different title, and mutilating your dogs for "aaaawwwwwws" was just as asinine then as it is now.
