Cropped ears or not?
Should I have my pups ears cropped if entering a show? or does it even matter. I personally like my pup without her ears crop but thats just me.
There not suppose to look at the ear that hard, I like cropped ears, but i dont like getting them done. I only crop ears when they have big ol floppy hound dog ears, most of the time i leave them to.
As you can see it all your choice
12.Ears- no preference should be given to cropped or uncropped ears, except to enhance the overall attractiveness of the
EARS - Ears are high set and may be natural or cropped without preference. If natural, semi-prick or rose are preferred. Prick or flat, wide ears are not desired.

Great source Hero. Thanks
thanks for that..i love my pups ears and my breeder is trying to tell me if i show him i'll want to crop them ...nice to hear i dont have too
Dont let them talk you into doing anything that you dont want to do. I love cropped ears. I think bulldogs look sharp with cropped ears, but i just think "damn thats gotta hurt" So i dont do it that often. Also they lose there "cuteness", and look more "bad$#@!" with cropped ears.
Before very cute (did not scare my mother in law)
after Still a beautifull dog but not as cute (scared my mother in law)
If i had to do it again i would not have cut her ears.
Here are two dogs that are show champions with natural ears
