The ears are fine, I can totally get used to that. That skinny, sighthoundish tail? Nope.

Gorgeous dogs, though. I love the look of the European Dobes.

I'm used to seeing dobes without cropped ears, but i didn't realise their tails curled. I like them.

I like dobes who are cropped and docked.

Rotties look horrible with natural tails. My opinion by the way.

I like boxers that are all natural. I love their long tail and floppy ears.

natural ears to me are adorable but i'm never going to get used to undocked tails. After years of having two aussies i'm used to having dogs that don't knock you or anything else with their tails

I prefer dobes with natural ears and docked tails, rotties docked, and boxers docked but not cropped. I can't stand the cropped look on boxers for some reason.

No offense, but the Rotties with tails look like lab mixes. I can deal with Dobies with uncropped ears but the tail, no way. Its so long and curvy, looks weird. Boxers look cute with floppy ears bit the tail just doesn't look right. Just my opinion, don't want to start a fight.

You are right. Natural rotties look like huge lab mixes.

I personally like to see the ears cropped and tails docked for Dobes..
but, I also grew up on the "show scene" and have RARELY seen uncropped ears for a dobe and actually have never met a long tailed dobe, unless it was in the pound and a cross with something else..

The GSP pic you posted is from New Zealand where docking is mostly illegal, the same with Australia. I would love my GSP either way, tail or no tail, but for the breed as a whole docking is for the best.

I actually like the Rott with the tail. But I could either way on that one. The Dobe, I definetely prefer docked and cropped. Boxers, I prefer docked, not cropped.
