WHAT??? I hope I am reading this wrong... Your breeder puts a rubber band on the dogs tail, then waits for it to "fall off"? If that is what she meant, I can see why so many people have issues with tail docking. That is NOT the way a dogs tail should be docked, a puppy should be taken to the vet (within the very first days of it's life) and the vet will dock it.
For the Original questions, some are born with natural bobs and the rest are docked.
