  4. Good afternoon to tod@s. I am looking for a bobtail to my child. Not long ago our of old woman died us; had a long name of these pedigree and such, but for the family it was fog. We bought it a few breeders of Cadiz, that after 12 logical years we lost contact details. My child misses her and take her birthday to bring you another “Fog”. If anyone has any information on puppies I would appreciate it.. It is not to raise, not working, not for competition. Is that you grew up with my child as one of the family. My email is jfina.lopez@gmail.com . Many thanks and regards.

  7. A very interesting book in my opinion is the new book of the BOBTAIL, written by Rosa Maria Suarez, THE JOWERS bobtail breeder.This book is very enlightening about the introduction of the bobtail in Spain, their breeders,maintenance etc.

  8. It is a very good contribution, Fran, especially if it comes from a person that is dedicated to the race, so I'll take it into account for editing. We are editing all entries page… Because we have seen in several errors, Although not fat…, errors of ignorance.

    So any contribution is well received.! Now I have to go, but then I will edit the piece speaks of the tail, here, and I will take into account, in the edition of the race entry.

    Thanks a lot, and good afternoon!

  9. An Ivana appreciation, and do not take it amiss , the BoBtail generally born with tail, not without it, at a time amputo you for two reasons, the first a canon or payment that is avoided(taxes) and the second who before the fight with any predatory Wolf, avoid being eganchados and torn apart by the anus.

    • Not always. Some are born without it. There are so many generations by cutting the tail that is transmitted genetically (I guess this is why) and are born without it.

      • That makes no sense…having a part of your body cut off doesn't change your genes. If it is true that some are born without a tail, it sure is not because they are cut, that has no scientific basis

  10. Thank you for the information, Fran. You dedicate yourself to the breeding of this breed? If so, would you like me to add you to the list??


    • Good evening I am interested in buying a female bobtail..I already had one and I adore that breed .. I live and Huesca, I leave you my email in case you are so kind to contact me ... thank you very much,,bobtail2000@hotmail.com..un saludo..
