Ok I'm gunna chime in here as I'm am one of those people who have chunks of my own ears missing
I've owned dogs with both natural and crop. Personally I think they look good either way.
Ear cropping is not at all traumatic like you may think and from personal experience, it doesn't really hurt it just itches.

Your ignorance is amazing. I hope no one uneducated (besides yourself) reads this and thinks less of anyone on this forum for no reason.

To think you compare amputating a major limb or spaying to trimming an ear tip is quite astonishing.


I hope these kind folks don't frown upon cursing in reps like they do cursing on the main forum

Poor thing. What horrible, selfish person did that to you? I can't believe you have to walk around with people avoiding you for fear of aggression. You're obviously more aggressive with cropped ears. I hope you don't go to jail and your people get dirty looks because of it. Although it's comparible, I'm just glad you weren't amputated for the funsies.




Any pictures? I've never seen it done to a human, lol.

Word. More like extra ear, then, haha.

Mutilation is in the eye of the beholder. As far as I'm concerned, I'm the beholder of my dog and he's not mutilated, lol. I get fired up with a quickness about the subject. Just like it's your body. You find tattoos and piercings the bee's knees, then it's modifying, not mutilating. I don't find my tattoos mutilation, either

Lord I would look unnatural now if I did not at least have a couple of bruises on my legs from being whacked with my dog's tails...lol!!!!
My girl Faith loves to wag her tail and she knocks things over all the time. She gets under my bed and you can hear it knocking on the bottom of my bed and against the boxes that are under my bed. I have bruises on my legs too from her tail but I wouldn't have it any other way. It means that she is happy and that is what I want. She doesn't have her ears cropped either. She looks too cute because both of her ears lay to the same side. I have seen dogs with ears both ways and like every one says it is a personal choice.

I hate people who judge anyone for what choice others choose in what they are feeding. I have a problem with people who call them fades and do not have a licensed vet complete the surgery. People who do their research find a vet who cares about what they are doing should not be accused of abuse because you don't agree with it.

KG the worst pain I ever felt was getting my tattoo (I have never have a Kid lol) I will never get another. My friend had her ears pinned and was in constant pain for 3 months. I think it is safe to say some pups might feel it differently than other dogs. I also think, like you, pit bull type dogs may have a higher pain threshold than other breeds, but really who are we to say? Every dog is different wouldn't ya think?
