I was wondering if anyone shows their dogs in the North Carolina, Virginia, South Carolina areas. If so, what do you think the chances are of finishing a dog with natural ears? Have there been many natural eared dogs entered in the area? I went to the show in Raleigh over Labor Day weekend, and I only saw one dog with natural ears. She wasn't even noticed. I love the look of natural ears. I don't feel that cropping ears is cruel or anything as long as an experience veterinary surgeon performs the surgery, I just love the way the floppy ears look. If the chances are really slim of finishing a natural eared dog, then I will have his ears done shortly after I get him. (He will be 8 weeks old when I get him.) Any opinions are appreciated.
