True McNabs are born with both long tails and naturally bobbed where they will have a few vertebrate at the tailhead. Sometimes you don't get a choice, but preferentially some ranchers like the tail as dogs communicate with their tail. Others because of the danger of doing close-up work with cattle where a tail can get stepped on prefer a docked or naturally bobbed tail. More importantly would be finding the pup that is well-socialized, raised on proper nutrition and also while in the womb. Purchasing a pup with solid genetics and a good hybrid vigor really matter when it comes to the life of your dog. Remember you are investing in a companion that you will hopefully have on average a life of 14-15 years.
