Yorkshire Terrier Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 9/1/2007
My 8-year-old daughter wants to know why Yorkies usually have their tales docked.

10/8/07 Yorkies are adventurous little terriers. They were originally bred in England to hunt small game and go down varmint holes. So their long tails would have been a problem if a critter caught them. I think they are docked as they were traditionally, to help them when hunting. Lisa
