Default Cropping Pittie Ears

My friend crops his pit bulls ears, because the floppy ears make them look ''sissy''. But personally though I think they look better with the floppy ears, and they look like cats to me when they have their ears crop. Whats your opinion on cropped ears on a pit vs natural ears?

I would personally never crop my dogs ears. Sissy looking or not, they were born with them. There is no real reason to crop them anymore other than to make them look meaner.

I strongly prefer the look of natural ears on APBTs. Ears give them so much more personality.

i much prefer the natural look.

the only breed in which i prefer the cropped look is dobes (and maybe briards. i'm on the fence there). but i would never ever crop a dog, as i don't believe in it.

I'm a fan of natural ears.
I never understood cropped ears on pit bulls, not that I'm against them, but you can read a LOT of a pit bulls emotions in his/her ears.
With pit bulls, if the owner crops the ears, they have to be careful to find a vet that does them REAL GOOD, or else the crop job can look REALLY bad.

I prefer the natural look on APBTs.. I think they are far too blocky (generally) to really pull the look off. (No offense to APBT owners!) Give me a Doberman with a show crop any day.
