Question:

: they are the cuttest puppies evr!
: Well anyways the thing is do i clip or cut their tails?
: and if so when or what age?

Dear Carissa,

If tails are to be docked, three days is the optimum time. No later.
Do not do it yourself. Take them to a Vet.

However, these pups are entirely your own creation. There is no need to make them conform to the JRT breed standard, tail-wise.

Random, accidental breedings like this often contribute to the load of unwanted pups which go to poor homes, or wind up in SPCA's and get euthanized. I hope you take care not to have this happen again.

Best of luck with this litter.

Carol
