Awww!! Puppies!! Everyone loves Puppies!
Must admit, I prefer my Rotties to be fully-tailed; thankfully here in the UK the whole snipping-bits-off-dogs-for-purely-cosmetic-reasons thing seems to be - at last - dying a death.
OK, I can kinda see that under some circumstances dew-claws can be a problem - but having spent time with a wolf whose tail had to be veterinarianly-shortened by about six inches following an injury - and seeing how even this reduced her full-speed cornering-capability... reinforced my philosophy that tails are there for a purpose!

I agree. The docking of tails might have been useful in the days when Rotts did more cattle herding, to keep their tails from being trampled, but nowadays it's not necessary. Rottie tails are coming back, as part of the standard even here in Canada and in the U.S. I think the full tails look wonderful. :)
