I am adopting a male 10 week old chihuahua puppy. When he was born his mother went way overboard with cleaning him; she chewed off his entire tail and the penis foreskin. There is nothing covering his penis. He is fine - goes potty with no problems. He never got any infection and seems fine. I don't have him yet and when I do I will take him to our vet, but has anyone heard of this before?

Yes, this happens commonly, more often with new mothers and it can be any breed of dog. Personally, I would not adopt this puppy. While he may not show any health problems now, he may in the future. It is not worth the risk. Vet visits are not free.
