full name would have been ankylosing spondylitis -- actually quite a bit written about it SPONDYLOSIS DEFORMANS

Unfortunately some of the Hooligans have been diagnosed with CES ... JR and his two offspring Ringer and Honey were all three diagnosed with CES. Currently I have Slider (JR's great/great/great grandson) who was recently diagnosed with it.

I'm not sure I can answer your questions but I can try.

This is an example. The litter had 7 males 3 females. All the females tails are normal. I think about 4 of the males tails look funny. In the photo, the back pups tail is just a little short however it is very obvious that the pup up front has almost a docked tail. Even if these pups are mixed, what would cause the tails to be of different lengths?

did the mother nip the tail while cleaning the pup - the loss of blood to the tail tip would have had it whither and fall off within days .
other than that a pedigree would be helpful

We weren't with her when she had the pups she had them sometime that early morning. I unfortunately do not have a pedigree for her.

ankylosing spondylitis is a degenerative disease --you wouldn't have it at birth .

Being mixed with a breed that can have naturally docked tails. In your other thread, you said another dog may have gotten to the female and the puppies may be mixed- well there ya go.
