Default Picture updates on the new puppy (Surgery tomorrow!)

So our doberman is almost 13 weeks old and he goes to get his ears cropped tomorrow. So there are his last floopy-eared pictures. He's growing up so fast! ):

What a gorgeous pup!

I honestly would not recognized him as a Doberman (don't know much about the breed) with his ears floppy. Sending good vibes for surgery tomorrow

Good luck. I hope you have a good cropper doing it, since you're having it done so late. Just wondering, why didn't his breeder have him cropped? I love dilutes, by the way.

wow - I didn't know cropping was still done. I'm used to seeing European Dobermann with natural ears and long tail - Rottweiler's with long tails.

Natural ears are adorable, we adopted out a natural ear/natural tail last year and she's gorgeous.
She looks Dobie
Our vets won't do cropping, one of them said she was tired of getting phone calls in the middle of the night where the pups were crying in pain.
I hope your vet uses good pain control

PS. Here's the girl with her new people. Ruffwear donated a jacket to her, and passed her info around and lo and behold, a couple who works for Ruffwear adopted her!
Isn't she a beauty! http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...type=3&theater

Hope everything goes well Post some pictures when it's all done!

In Australia it's not legal crop ears or dock tails.

The vet who did my fiances last dobermans ears is doing it and he did a fantastic job last time. Not sure why the breeder didn't do it. She did tails and the claws. Maybe because she wanted it to be up to whoever purchased a pup? I'll post pictures after hes healed.

Personally I like the cropped ears better. Bit that's just me.

@msvette2u- I wish I could see that picture, but I do not have a Facebook.

Awww, poor puppy dog. I don't really like the idea of cropping anything, but i won't judge someone for doing it. I think cropped ears look nice on Dobermans, but i couldn't do it.
