About almost two weeks ago, I picked up an Australian shepherd puppy from a breeder. She is almost ten weeks now.

Now, I have noticed something strange about Lily's tail, that I didn't notice before (it was docked). What is left of her tail, is only about an inch, and there is barely any hair on it. Just some short fuzz. It is basically just a little bone. Also, there is a flap of skin above it.

I am not happy that the breeder didn't inform me of this.

I need some answers, and would be very grateful if someone could give me some. If a picture is needed, let me know!
