I was hoping some of you might have some insight you could add on this subject.
We have a deposit on second pick yellow female in a litter and there is only two girls.
The problem is one has a kink in it's tail. Since we have the second pick it looks like the one with the kink in it's tail is our only option.
We did some research and could find very little information on this type of a fault in Labs.
We are waiting for pictures from the breeder to see how bad it really is but we are seriously thinking about not taking this pup.
I talked to a couple Breeders and they said tail kinks are very rare in Labs.
We had thought of breeding this female down the road but we would not even think about breeding her with this kind of a fault. I'm not sure if it's genetic or if mom accidentally stepped on it.
What would you do? Would you get your deposit back and look for another pup or is a tail fault normal?
The breeders were willing to reduce the price 100.00 but for the money we are paying for this pup I want one that has no defects at all.
Are we blowing this out of proportion or is there indeed a reason for concern here?
