Here are some pictures of my dog, Schnapps.

Her full name is Skansen's Schnapps Von Ziegfried.

She is a giant schnauzer from skansen.com breeders.

At attention but still a puppy.

Yup the breeder cropped them and docked the tail. I was aksed if I wanted to crop the ears and I said I did. I think it makes her look great. Her ears are so expressive.

I have seen the uncropped Giants and tehy look great also.

but a dogs tail and ears are probably their 2 main body language tools and they are ruined by cropping and docking.

if the floppy eared dogs look great also, then why crop her ears???

oh. I am sure that its painful. How can getting your ears chopped off and your tail cut not be painful. But teh pain goes away, and now she feels nothing, and looks great.
