agree with deco,it's pointless, purely aesthetic and serves no purpose other than to make a dog look "tough"..

it's illegal to dock any dog's tail now because it's considered inhumane and cruel to the animal,ear cropping and tail docking are both unnecessary and purely aesthetic some people claim ear cropping can prevent some ear problems but in most cases it's just done for the look...

i thinks if your born with it then its meant to be there, i do agree with it being cruel when its done by a joe soap hacking the ears off poor dogs and not even knowing how to look after them let alone do it, but i have to say when its done by a "professional vet" i have seen some nice jobs done on some dogs although i wouldn't go out and get my pup done if i had the chance.

Yes I Agree,Just Anyone Can't Do It.Ive Seen Some Pics On Another Pitty Forum & There Is Some Bad Jobs!
Like Boxers I Think They Look Way Better With Their Tail Docked. Some People Think Pitty's Look Nicer With Their Ears Cropped.

we've actually already had appointment with a vet over in Poland when we baught our male dog.
(it was already illigal 6 yrs ago, but you could easilly find a vet who would do it for extra cash)
but after a nice talk with a breeder we baught the boy from, we've changed our mind.
his parents had normal ears, still show dogs, but his grandparents had to have their ears cropped,
And like she said, if she wanted to be a professional breeder when she started, she had to show her dogs off on the shows, her dogs had to win few prices, and after that she could to become a breeder.
anyway back then it was the only way pitbulls/amstaffs looked like.so she had no choice.
dogs with ears cropped looks taugher, but i don't think is necessery.
i love my dogs ears, and our daughter has something to pull off.
But like you all propably know, in Poland, most of the dogs has their ears cropped,
People over there think pit/amstaff with ears is not a real pit=bullshit.
and i think what inside it counts.

If i were to be given the opportunity I would have it done I think it makes them look more clean-cut, makes them more defined which i like.

as i said although i have seen nice jobs the ears wouldn't be the making of a dog to me, i look more at their shape, condition etc..

I think its a macho look, its more of a trend n fashion statement. If you are into that style, i wont argue. After all everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Each trainned fighting Pitbull, Staffy etc has its own style and technique of fighting. You can get hind leg dogs, ear dogs etc. Either way, its all Prehistoric and should be kept that way. Cropped ears could be for different reasons, sum dogs are born with full drop ears. Longer than normal ears, some owners dont like them. So they gget cosmetic surgery on the poor dogs. Others show them, so most would prefer cropped ears. Just like the Am Staff, a show version of the Pitbull.

just a little advice nika, you really shouldn't let the little 1 pull out of the dogs ears, even the most stable of dogs can snap when they get their ears pulled, its the most sensitive part of their body and unfortunately dogs know no other way to retaliate other than using their mouth.

i think some pit bulls are suited to the croped look and some arn't i can see how its cruel but if its done by a proper vet and the dog is reallly well looked after then why not, i personally wouldn't do it to my pit as people will be even worse when they see the dog as i do agree it looks more vicious even tho there as harmful as a fly.

also in america pit bulls, boxers, doberman, great danes, dogo argentino etc get there ears cropped it there used for hunting bores, it stops the bore been able to bite the dogs ear and thats one less chance of getting ur dog hurt

another reason i wouldn't do it is because you can tell a lot about a dogs behavior by their ears and tail etc, and ill still say if their born with it i suppose they should be able to keep it Surprised
