I cropped my Daisy's ears and almost lost her due to a reaction to the anesthesia. She actually flat lined twice but was brought back by my vet. Don't think I'll ever due it again. But the pointy ears do resemble horns which fit her personality

They won't stay exactly how they are right nowm but they will probably get a good prick to them though.

Its just a matter of personal taste. I have cropped all mine but I am going to keep the latest one natural. He has such a great prick already.

LOL Well I love natural ears so I vote for not cropping.

It is really a personal choice though. You have to decide what is best for you and the pup.

If you are concerned about the look of the ears and don't want to crop you have another option:
Here ya go one link on taping and one link on using glue ears

I'm not sure what you mean by "stay the way they are now" but I agree with bedlambully, they are already looking to not be much trouble with standing up nice.

For example, my boy's ears weren't symmetrical, but with some taping that the vet did, they managed to come out straight and even.

Notice his left ear folds forward, and his right ear to the right:



After the crop, his left ear is sunken in at the base of his head:



End result (sorry, not to great of a pic)

Also be prepared for the amount of work AFTER the crop is done. Its at least a month of healing, bandaging, pain meds, segregation (no play with other dogs, they will chew on the ears) and if they don't stand right its another month at least of taping and retaping to make them stand.

Not trying to disuade you its your choice, Just saying..be prepared!

Very true.

Nikki, pick your vet wisely. As far as my experience, it was no biggie and went very smooth. Only "meds" I had to give was Pet Tabs for calcium, since my vet said my boy was low on his pasterns, but I think there is also a theory that the calcium tablets help the cartilage get stronger faster.

So, if you or your husband aren't ready for the task of getting blood on you from cleaning off the scabs daily with hydrogen peroxide, then prepare yourself

I like the crop look but it's different with every dog. I just thought Zoe looked better with cropped ears. It is ALOT of work though. I didn't understand how much work until it was to late...lol. I believe it was worth it though....
