Springer Spaniel question

If you are wondering what is the right dog for you, this is the place to be. In this introductory forum we talk about topics such as breed vs. mix, size, age, grooming, breeders, shelters, rescues as well as requirements for exercise, space and care. No question is too silly here. This particular forum is for getting and giving helpful, nice advice. It is definitely not a forum for criticizing someone else's opinion, knowledge or advice. This forum is all about tail wagging and learning.

What do their tails look like if they're not docked? I googled, but couldn't find any "natural" pics.

My friend adopted a dog that the shelter thought was a border collie/springer mix, but she has a short curly tail, kinda like a chow's. We were wondering if that's what a springer spaniel's tail looks like if it's not docked.

we'll try to get some shots but they do look like a thinner version of a chows, i'm afraid mine was docked so I can't show you mine but i'll look for some and we know there's ones about with tails.

I'm a cocker spaniel, not a springer spaniel, but I'm pretty sure our tails naturally look very similar. Mine was never docked, so check out the pictures on my page.

I have my tail. It's real hairy at the end. But I'm not a purebred either.

Rudy your chin kinda has that wrinkly thing that my chin has. My human wishes that I was smaller like you.

Wow, thanks guys! Her tail doesn't look anything like those pictures. I don't have pictures of her tail, but you can see her on the last pic on my page playing tug. I think she must have some chow in her cuz she's got such a square muzzle.

Well, I was a lot of Springer and my tail doesn't look anything like a Springer tail, either.

The pound said Beagle/Springer, but My Girl jokes that I had Akita in me.
