My baby's tail

So my pug is about 4 months old, and I have noticed that his tail isn't very curly.  It's usually extended with a slight curl, now I'm just wondering if you guys have any ideas on whether or not it will curl with age, or if he will just have a naturally straighter-than-normal tail.  He is pure-bred, that's just why I was curious.  Anyways, thanks for your time!

all pugs' tails are different, some have a tight double curl, some have just a loose curl. my rosie has a tight single curl but mikey's tail is much more open. thier tails will also straighten out when they are relaxed, doing the pugtona, and sometimes even if they are concentrating like chewing on a bone. if my guys are upset or not feeling well their tail will uncurl. as long as your baby is acting normally, i would worry about his tail.

yeah i have noticed the same thing with my lil frances,, she has got a tight single curl tail but if she is feeling ill or in one of her sooky moods her tail straightens out..

Our pugs both have double curls, but they do straighten out from time to time. Usually when they're tired, sleeping, concentration on a toy, hot/uncomfortable or not feeling well.

Sulynns tail goes straight sometimes. And not all pug tails are the same. As said above.  China Rose's tail started out a double curl to the left side, and now at age 4 yrs. it rides high up over her back at times, and others back to the side. I think she likes to changer her styles at times. HA!

Yes, their tails are a sign of their mood! LOL. Desi has a tight double curled tail he holds on his right hip. Bella has a single loose curled tail she carries in the middle of her back. But both straighten when resting, chewing and doing the Pugtona! LOL. Their tails are like a thumb print, no two are the same!

~ Zuji's tail has become more tightly curled over the past several months.

When he has a wee pup, his tail semi-curled.

Now it's a decent Pug-type curl.
