Seriously? Who told you that? There have been many natural earred UKC champions and grands. Even loads more natural earred ADBA/AADR CH and GRCH's.

The breeder Ryker came from believed that garbage too and he's cropped because of it. Lyric made UKC CH with natural sillies.



And so totally OT, but it was cute....

I've heard from lots of people that believe it. Some simple research would be enough to lay the myth to rest, but some people like using it as an excuse as to why it HAD to be done.

Lyric is beautiful! I love natural ears. Don't care how floppy, or whatever, they are.

I also don't promote cosmetic surgeries, or causing unneeded pain to make a creature (human, or other) look "better".

I thought about getting Loki's done my boyfriend wanted me to and he still bugs me about it lol but his ears are just soo pretty to me I couldn't bear to lose them I love how they have all 3 of his colors.




Plus I'm still not sure if he's full or a mixed breed or what, and I didn't know if certain mixes interfered with cropping them somehow...

But if you're ok with cleaning your pups ears and tuning out the crying, then go for it.

Now this all depends on the vet that you choose. Some will wrap the ears, and you won't have to deal with much after care, but if the vet is like my vet, he had me cleaning the scabs off daily (after the 1st 3 days) with hydrogen peroxide.
When I got my dogs ears cropped, I was told NOT to touch them at all. There was no cleaning, no blood, just leave them alone for 10 days until the stitches come out. They were taped up. Also, hydrogen peroxide kills germs but also living cells, so from what I know, it would be damaging to use. Something like chlorhexadine might be better IMO.

I have known of some dogs who got their ears cropped and were bothered by it and ripped out the stitches, had to get re-stitched, sounds like a nightmare to me. I think a good crop looks great, but a bad crop looks TERRIBLE, so if you do decide, find the best vet you can for crops and do not price-shop. If you can't find a really good vet for crops then just leave them be. Also request pain meds, IMO it's cruel to not give pain meds after surgeries. Studies show dogs will heal faster with pain meds.
