Because of the location and nature of some kinks, because the tail vertebrae are "fused" in that position, it's much easier to cause an injury, especially in a working dog. He's actually staying and we're going to start him and then put him in a working/hunting home, not a "just pet" home, but we figured that would be the case (why we didn't cull this pup was his spunk from birth and he hasn't let up yet
