Puppy Tail

Hello,
I'm new to this forum so forgive me if I've posted this thread in the wrong place. My 7 week old black german shepherd walks around with a curled tail 95% of the time unless he is eating or laying down of course. He is pure bread and I was wondering if this tail would eventually take proper position and begin to uncurl as he gets older? Has anybody else had a gsd with a curled tail? Did it straighten out?
Thanks

I have same problem. But minw walks around with it mostly curled and sometimes uncurled. He is 9 weeks and it wasn't like that before.

He is also pure. Might just be a "gay tail"

Did your puppy's tail look like mine when he was around 7 weeks or did his just get worst?

No, it just kinda popped up. Or maybe I didn't notice. But now he holds it in lots of weird positions. But mostly curled. They might just grow out of it.
