The Natural Ear
While I personally like the alert and ready-to-defend look of the cropped-eared Dobe on alert, some of you may prefer the European or softer look. a Dobe who has not had its ears cropped.
This too would be the way to alter the aggressive look of the Dobe a bit if public acceptance is your goal. Just let us know before your pup is weaned and we will leave the ears natural.
Note: all guarantees are void if you have the Hoytt Dobe cropped after placement with one exception: those who themselves are Veterinarians and want to show off their own crop design but with one exception to date those who are practicing veterinarians prefer the kid be done by those who know the end development appearance of the Dobe being acquired.
