I have been to many kennel sites, and this trend runs rampant within bully contracts..

"..Dog must be kept in good health, ears MUST be cropped......."

I think there is an obsession in the bully world with a cropped ear, or maybe it's just the idea that a dog has to have a big head with small, pointy ears. I see this a lot and wonder why people can't have their own opinion.

Crops shouldn't be done at this age, however a laser crop is pretty painless and not nearly as traumatizing as a normal crop. If that is something you really have your heart set on, just remember that the procedure is purely aesthetic and for looks only. She's a bully, and without papers, it won't matter wether one registry prefers crop over natural, because she can't do conformation. With that said, you have to really make up your mind if you really want to go through with it.

A lot of people will tell you that it is too old, but every dog is different, and different dogs react differently to certain procedures, scenarios, etc. She may become headshy, not allowing you to pet her ears, or she might become anxious when you touch the top of her head. This is the ONLY thing I would be concerned about. Other than that, the choice is yours, as it is to begin with when you pick your puppy out.

Don't let others influence you as far as what you want to do with your dog. I know youre on here for advice but the most important part of doing it early is reducing the "trauma" on your pup, as they get older they remember more and become more aware of pain..

You and I share one thing in common. I think a female looks better with Natural Ears. A man is always supposed to be rugged, and he might have long or short hair, but rugged is key. With a female, they dress up to look cute, so I think the natural ear gives them a friendlier appearance. Not that I would be intimidated by a dog with a crop, but you do turn more heads when the crop is done. The decision of wether you want to crop or not could also result in people thinking your dog is either mean/ or cuddly. What people don't know could fill up the sears tower 10 times.

The best decision is always the one with your dog in mind

Bat ears don't make her mixed, although she may be anyway. I know a UKC CH who has fully pricked ears. As for cropping, if you're not going to show her (which you can't without papers), I'd leave it be.
