The Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog is not an Australian Cattle Dog with a docked tail.  There are major structural differences in breed type between the two breeds of Cattle Dogs.  Stumpy Tail Cattle Dogs are a natural bob-tail breed. Some Stumpy Tail pups are born with long tails and should not be discarded from a breeding program if they are of structural quality, and bred back to quality natural bob tails.
