A bit of bobtail information:

The length of the naturally short tail varies from pup to pup
Generally it is about 2 inches long when the dog is adult, but can vary with tails up to about 4 inches long when adult (even in dogs from the same litter)

It is thought that the length of the short tail depends on the long tailed parent, as some bitches produce puppies with very short tails when bred
to a bobtail dog, while others when mated to the same dog, produce pups with tails that ultimately are about 4” long
A bobtail parent simply passes on the gene for the short tail, not for the length of the bobtail

Either way, pet owners aren’t bothered if the tail is 2” or 4” long, as long as they have a short tailed boxer
