Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

We recently adopted a husky from a divorcing family. She's sweet and beautiful, but has a short tail. It looks like a docked tail..maybe eight inches long. The previous owners said that she was bitten as a puppy, but the vet seemed to think this unlikely. Any ideas, or anyone seen this before? Just curious. Also, thanks for this forum...it's been a lot of help as we adjust to our new family member...including affirming my suspicion that my daily runs with her are the key to her fabulous behavior!!

Pictures would help as i've seen some Siberians with just naturally shorter tails. Congrats on your new Husky!

Claudia's dog storm, who is a large scale husky, has a really short tail, especially for his size. I would say 8 or 9 inches is probably about what it is?

I think longer than that - it just look that short because he's big! But he can't curl his tail like all other huskies!

Here's Storm, and this is about as much as he can curl his tail.

Here's another picture for reference.
It may be more like 12 inches long, but Storm is tall and long...I think his height measurement is 25-26 inches tall, and length is 34-35 inches from base of neck to base of tail.

I was figuring it's a little bit less than half as long as him from shoulder to ground.. now you have to measure when you get home!

No pics convenient to put up, but 8 inches was a poor guess. It's more like 4-5. The upside is not having to deal with a tail knocking things (like our toddler!) over Smile
