yeah it isnt illegal to have a dog with cropped ears because they can be imported like it,ive seen dobermans round my area with there ears cropped and they was imported from usa.

nice presa canarios,what are there temprements like?are they like bullmastiffs,big daft things but are very protective?

right im gonna start an argument here I expect, but whats bad about cropping their ears? if its done by a trained vet with the correct after care surely its a painless experience for the dog, I would rather have my ears trimmed than my nuts chopped off.

i agree,some breeds i like to see with there ears cropped like dobermans,pitbulls,shnautzers,presas.anything else looks silly.i think it would hurt the dog about the same as having theer nuts off.i think its just down to the owners choice how they want there dog to look cosmeticly.

because after a dogs ears are cropped it has to go through the pain of them healing and usually a horrible metal frame attached to their heads all through their puppyhood solely for the purpose of cosmetics!
the way i see it, if you dont like how the dog looks in the first place, dont get it.
and neutering is for things such as health and to stop unwanted puppies so not really the same thing. dogs dont care how they look, only humans.
i see ear cropping as a selfish act for someone to make their dog look "harder"
and i know its not illegal to import cropped dogs, its just illegal to crop a dog when its in the UK.
By the by, just my opinion, not wanting to start an argument. Everyone has their own opinion right?

I didnt know the process involved in having there ears clipped, I dont see why there should be pain healing though if done properly

Lovley looking dogs. I do prefer the cropped ear look, same with yorkies and docked tails, its just a shame their not born that way.
