Ok in the US show scene does the boxer's ears really have to be cropped? I met a lady here locally who purchased an imported dog from England and the lady who shows boxers said something about the contract does not allow the dog to have her ears cropped because the dog was from England. I think she was going to try and show her but the dog was to help her breeding program as well. I'm curious because I might consider purchasing a show dog in a few years, but I really prefer the floppy ears if I could get away with it. I really know very little about showing but I'm starting to think about it because I enjoy the breed so much and am concerned about ensuring good temperments so less dogs end up put down due to temperment issues or other general health issues. My Rufus and Roxy are both docked and floppy rescues and not even close to show quality but they are what made me love boxers.
