Could someone have bent my pomeranian's tail?

We bought our pom from a pet store about 5 1/2 years ago and when we bought him, we noticed that the tip of his tail was bent in a 90 degree angle. I was wondering if this could have been done to make his tale curl over his back. It makes me sad to think that someone could have done that. Then I wonder if my pom came from a puppy mill. I was clueless about puppy mills until recently.
I was just curious. Thanks.
Answers:
Pomeranians tails naturally curl over their backs in very tight circles. It's possible that your pup's tail was broken at one time or maybe got stuck in something like between a door & doorjam. He could have just been born with the crook in his tail. There really isn't any way too find out how it happened, so just love him how he is.

*BTW* I own an 11 month old pom. Aren't they just the greatest little dogs?
did it get caught in a door as it closed??
It really does sound like his tail was broken at some point. Poor little guy.
Maybe its tail got broke. I heard of people breaking cats tails it could of got broken at early age and healed wrong. I have Cat that cant meow the Doctor says the he can find anything wrong with it. so i think a little kid got ahold of it at the pet store and you know how little kids always hold a pet by the neck. so something like that could of happend at the pet store.
my dachshund has a bent tail it is just a birth defect, when they were born they came out at an angle which the tail got crushed.
Hey I bought my pom from a private breeder a good friend. My pom will be six in april 07 and her tail curls over her back.. I think your pom is fine..hope ur puppy didnt come from a puppy mill. Good luck on finding out
Sorry but If he came from a pet store he came from a puppy mill.
I have a pomeranian and her tale was always curved the same as your poms. That is natural for a pom.
I have a pom mix. your pom probubly was just born that way. So, you don't have to fell bad for her/him. And I don't think your pom came from a puppy mill or he/she would have more problems then just a bent tail.
My pom's tail can always curl over her back, and her head can turn almost 180 degree.
**LMAO**!!
It was BORN w/a KINK! It happens.

If you were foolish enough to buy from a PETSTORE.OF COURSE it's from a pup-factory! ONLY CRAP from CROOKS is EVER avaiable!

It's just a POS junk-dawg from a CROOK "breeder" that couldn't POSSIBLY care LESS how faulty it was!!
