True-further, multi-generation stub tail + stub tail breeding is in reality no different from one generation. there is no accumulative effect associated with the t-box mutation. stub tailed dogs only have one dose of the gene (heterozygous) irrespective of their parents, or grand-parents. nothing can change. there is no significant science to show that multigeneration breeding of only stub tails + stub tail dogs creates any negative outcomes for puppies. neither can multigeneration breeding of stub tail + stub tail pairings alter ratios of stub tail / tailed puppies in the litter.
