I don't mind cropping in a breed like dobies where they're being shown and the cropping has or once has served a purpose.

Cropping an APBT ears is dumb, especially if it's not being shown or working.

I think pits look best natural though I have seen some stunning Am Staffs with nice crop jobs. It's a breed I could take either way. If I had one, it'd most likely be natural.

My opinion on this is that I am scared that someone needs to crop a dog ear's for the reason that natural ears look "sissy". Especially with a bully breed.

I like the natural look on ALL breeds, the only crops I like I've seen on here are Ilsa and Ronin's crops and the WW2 Dobe crops.
I would never crop my dogs ears

i really appreciate that more and more people are taking natural-eared pit bulls into the show ring. kudos to them for bucking the trend.

I mush prefer the natural look, it makes them look more goofy and fun IMO.

I really only kind of like crops on Dobies and Briards and even then there are a lot of dogs natrual looks good on. Even then I like natural ears best.

Pit bulls, I think, look bad 98***37; of the time with crops. They just don't have the right build to pull it off.
