Do you have to cut their hair or do they shed?

It does not destroy your dogs body language. Rocky's ears stand naturally and his ears are actually VERY expressive.

If so, I guess you would want your sire to have the desired traits that other breeders are looking for. Most of the people on this board, however, just love dogs for being dogs. So, I hope you understand this stance. If I ever had a dobe, for instance, I'd want him floppy eared and long tailed!
I can't believe what people are saying. It's actually quite funny. I've met a very expressive Boxer with cropped ears and a docked tail... what's so wrong with it?

BigDog,
People just like to find something to complain about on this forum. Instead of just saying how pretty the dog is, they just had to jump straight to blessing this guy out for something that is done already. No, I don't really care for ear cropping or tail docking either. I have seen it done, and I don't like it. But, my god. People on here have their pants on too tight or something. Because lately, all I have seen is griping.

Personally, I never want to come back again. See ya all later Chazhound. This was the last straw. I am so tired of you guys finding everything you can wrong with another person as if you are so high and mighty to sit up on some throne and judge.
I will find another animal lover site where the people actually "like" humans too.

Sorry to add to the off-topic chatter here, but It is kind of crazy that some folks here would immediately put down a dog owner who has a cropped/docked breed.

My parents had a birthmark surgically removed from my back when i was an infant because they didn't think it would look good when i grew up although it posed no health concerns. I betcha that hurt like a son of a b*tch when that was coming off....you know, i think i should take them to court and fight for damages. You know what, they also circumcised me...lets ban that too!

Babyblue,gigant schnauzers are both black and salt and pepper but the ones salt and pepper are rare.
Standard schnazers I know that are salt and pepper and I don't know if there are also black..
And the mini schnauzers are salt and pepper, black, black and silver and white...


Siemens716 your schnauzer is GORGEOUS!!!I love her.And I admitt that I love them more with cropped years and tail off...but I also have to admitt that is a little torture for the dog...well..
I used to work for a vet, dog hair stylist and he breeds schnauzers.Before I met him I didn't care so much for schnauzers but now I really am inlove with this breed.I think they are great!!His dogs looks a lot like yours..I don't know maybe you know his dogs...taras is saying something to you?Well if you want more informations ask me.
Kiss Kiss
Nicco

PS: your dog is beautiful.Really!!!

Pro.....I don't think people were knocking each other.....they are giving opinions , which is their due. If the like the natural dogs, so be it. If they like the cropping, so be it !

I just don't like the unnecessary pain inflicted upon an animal. That's why I'm against it. Like I said before, if I had a dobie, he/she would be floppy earred and long tailed

I'm SO GLAD Rocky's beautiful ears stand at attention naturally! Congrats on your gorgeous pup who's a totally natural beauty.
