The pug is a wrinkly-faced teddy bear dog that has curly tails. This article looks into what causes the curled tail and how to care for it.

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.
