celticpitbulls wrote:Cropped ears, there was many reasons for this, for breeds such as the doby, the Doberman was bred to be a personal protector, cropped ear's is less of a "handle" for an attacker to hang out of just like their tails. for other breeds the original intention of ear cropping was to reduce injury to dogs who would engage in battle with other dogs, animals, or humans by giving the opponent less to grab onto also. It also decreased the risk of a hunting dog's ear being torn when running through underbrush etc.
ear cropping has being encouraged by the show crowd to keep certon looks of working dogs even though they are not worked today, just like the intention of tail docking.
unfortunately some bad bloodsports still exist today such as dog fighting, cropped ears would be more associated to that bloodsport within the pit bull/bully breeds. This would be 1 of the main reasons i would discourage the cropping of any pet dogs as it is understandable when you come across so many fearful people looking at your dog like he/she is "one of them dogs" and makes it that little bit harder to enplane how friendly he/she is than a dog with ears!


I think at the end of the day weather its legal or not people are going to do it still if this is what they want, we would be best to try advise against it due to the reasons of this forum, our forum is here to educate not dictate, if this is a decision mad by you nobody here can tell any1 what to do but what i will say is if your mind can't be changed about it than at least take this advice, always remember its about what you want and that its not essential, always remember that if the fear the general public have of the bully breeds and that just as we see our dogs as cute bears sleeping in our beds others may not see them that way "IF we want to make a change we must change", and most of all always remember go to a professional vet if there is 1 out there willing to do this if that's what you choose to do and NEVER get some1 to do it coz you heard they can, this is where dogs are suffering being hacked to death and left in horrific pain.

I think cropped ears are more associated with show dogs than any other type
a dog involved in bloodsports with cropped ears would be more susceptible to serious damage on the thicker cartilage at the base of the ear, as opposed to the thin part of a whole ear

it is only possible to show dogs with cropped ears at international shows, there are only 2 international shows in Ireland every year
the show dog must have proof that the ears were cropped in a country of origin where it is legal to crop ears

cropping ears in Ireland is illegal and anyone found doing it is liable to prosecution

I personally like the look of cropped ears, but I think it is pointless in this country since been made illegal
if a dog warden wanted he/she could easily make a case against anyone found to have a dog whose ears were cropped here in Ireland

I have a show dog whose ears were cropped in her country of origin where it is LEGAL to crop ears, unfortunately it restricts the no. of shows I can attend
New legislation is due in europe which will prevent any dog with cropped ears from being shown at F.C.I. and affiliated shows

JMO

the top part of that post was copied i should have mentioned, the 2nd was from me. yeah have to agree the the historical men would rather the dog with the ears, i think its more of a certain look people want of their dog, i have said before i think it can look nice on some dogs but only if its done by a pro, there was a horrific case in galway 1 time where these tics hacked the ears off 2 pups, it was rite down to the bud by the time the scum were finished with them and they were just left to run around the streets, seen that can give ya a big turn off. i wasn't sure if it was illegal or not do the garda or wardens ever comment on ether of yours that have their dogs ears done???
