Sorry to break it to you, but I don't think there is a way to tell 100%. Post a picture of her though, and you can have an opinion. We have a large number of EB's on this board.

One of the EB owners is going to have to help you with this. You might try pming maryserratos or Bearsmom. Those are 2 that I can think of off the top of my head.

Yes, some EB's get wrinkles a little later than others. Some just don't get wrinkly. Look at the parents, that should give you an idea of how wrinkly your baby will be. I have never seen an purebred EB that had a nose at all. I am not saying they don't exist, I have just never seen one. They are bred to have no muzzle. I would love to see a pic though. I will give you my best opinion of what I think :D !!! I need LOTS AND LOTS of pics to do it though..LOL :wink:

Heck no!!! Tails are to be done between days 3-5. I wouldn't even consider that.

I would not do it only for cosmetic reasons. If she has trouble with it then you may need to. I know this because my females tail was not cropped. She does not have a long tail, but it is not a little nubby one either. I was not even concerned with it until she had trouble. I have to have it done, I have been putting it off but I have to do it now. When she poos, she can't lift her tail like most dogs. It sits too tight against the body so the poo gets stuck and begins to irritate the skin.

Like Amocat said, it should be done at 3-5 days. Do not risk putting her under for look. It is not worth it...

Still waiting for pics :wink:

yeah the vet i went to suggested i get it amputated because of tail injury but advised he would have to give her sleep medicines to do it because of tying of a vein. it all sounds risky as hell to me.ive fallen in love with her pure or not
but pics will be up tommorow

Post pics.

Also, a EB's tail shouldn't be docked. I'm lucky both Bear and Molly have the cute corkscrew tails. Bears is very tight against his butt and Molly's is more out and it likes like she wages it like a tinkerbell. It's sooooo cute.

Also, to answer your appearance questions, you could consult the bread standard written for EB's. You can find alot of information on www.thebca.org
