I looking for a Boykin Spaniel, but do not want one with a docked tail. I have a friend with one that is undocked. Are there any breeders that would leave a pup undocked if the pup was already paid for in full?
I know it has no effect on the dog, but I just prefer undocked tails.

Not sure reputable breeders would do that since tails are docked very early. As a breeder I would want to evaluate the pups at 7 weeks …long after tails had been done.
Possible I suppose…ask and see. If the breeder is not breeding for show quality..they may do it.
Why undocked anyway…it sure doesn’t change their wonderful personalities and talent in the field!
