Why are Pugs Tails Curled?

Pug puppies are born with curly tails. However, most pugs will have their tails curled by the time they are 6 months old. This is because of the way that their tail muscles work and how they use them to walk. The muscle in a dog’s tail is controlled by nerves that send signals to the spinal cord. These signals tell the spinal cord when to contract or relax which causes the muscles in a dog’s tail to curl up or down. Read more in detail here: pug puppy tail not curled.
