We met Smouse whilst signing dogs up for this weekend’s Steri Drive 11.
With a young owner unaware that her ‘Uncle’ docking her new pups tail with scissors would lead to consequences, there were many tears and the SAPS involved in Smouse’s removal.
The South African Vet Council has ruled that tail docking is in contravention of the animals protection act, there’s no exclusion for breeders & vets face being struck off if they carry out the practice for cosmetic reasons!
Smouse is eight weeks old, a small to medium breed female, she’s fighting an infection from her amateur tail docking but is otherwise healthy.
