SOMEONE ASKED 👇
Does Anybody Have 0r Seen An English Mastiff With CROPPED EARS?!?!?!?
HERE THE ANSWERS 👇
The only dogs that should be cropped are the ones that is in the breed standard
What you have is a mutt and no reputable vet will crop for the sake of cropping
I am not against cropping as I breed boxers and all of mine whether they are shown in conformation or are simply pets, all have their ears cropped. Yet they are a breed which it is written within their breed standard although they can not be show with natural ears.
The is no standard for a mutt and there is no reason to crop the ears. Your finding a picture of what you described would slim to none. Even if you did find someone who was foolish enough to have found a vet that cropped a mutt mix that you are asking about, absolutely no 2 mutts regardless of the mix ever look alike. That is the difference between a pure breed versus a mixed breed mutt. Purebreds all follow the same standard thus knowing what they will look like, while having a mutt is like a crap shoot, you never know what it will end up looking like until they actually become adults.
If you want a dog with cropped ears then you buy a dog of which has a standard for the crop.
Also just some info on cropping….
Cropping costs upwards of $600
Cropped ears needs to be taken care of 2x daily for the first 10 days to prevent infection and scarring.
Cropped ears can take anywhere from 1 month to 12+ months of constant posting for the ears to stand. This cost $15 every 10 days from your vet.
Not all cropped ears stand regardless of how diligent you are at having the ears posted.
Lastly Mastiffs do NOT have cropped ears and honestly would just look ridiculously ugly.
Please explain as how you know the pup is 1/4 boxer? Did the BYB tell you that?
Very sad to have ruined two beautiful breeds
Again I am not against cropping but certainly it should only be done to dogs who are A breed that’s breed standard call for it. Mutts should be left as they are with natural ears.
Lastly as stated above your finding a reputable veterinarian that is experienced with doing crops willing to crop a mutt is slim to none.
English Mastiff Cropped Ears
You don’t crop Mastiff ears. The ears are not designed to be cropped. The cartilage will not support a crop. (it doesn’t matter if there is Boxer or any other breed that traditionally has cropped ears in the mix) Even among breeds that have traditional been cropepd breeds many have crop failures. You would be putting your dog through a croping procedure for nothing. Also cropping must be done before a puppy is 16 weeks old even in a cropped breed.
I own & show Great Danes and my current Show Danes are natural ear.Source(s): Vet tech for 38 years, have worked for vets in the past that cropped, owned traditionally cropped breeds (Dobermans, Great Danes) for years
Nope, I haven’t. There isn’t a single kennel club that would ever accept a Mastiff with cropped ears, so thankfully, I’ve not met anyone who wanted to needlessly mutilate their Mastiff’s ears even though doing so is expressly against the breed standard. So, yeah, you’re unlikely to find a picture of a purebred Mastiff with cropped ears. You should have no problem finding pictures of various other mastiffs with cropped ears, though, like the Boxer, Great Dane, Cane Corso and Neapolitan Mastiff. That should give you a fairly good idea of how it’ll look.
I have never personally seen a english mastiff with cropped ears. Since it is a mix you couldn’t show it in any breed classes so it doesn’t matter if the ears are cropped. Boxers are shown with cropped ears though. You can crop the ears if you want to there is not reason you can’t if you want to.
Cropped ears for an English mastiff is a ‘preference’ thing. the breeds standard does not include cropped ears. if they are cropped….it is probably for fighting purposes. Personally I haven’t seen one with cropped ears either though.
Never seen one…I would think a Mastiff’s ears would be too long and too large to crop, but what do I know? I have St. Bernard’s!! I would talk to your vet, they would know rather it can & should be done! Good Luck!!Source(s): St.Bernard owner 35+ years
That would look horrible. Plus, you will find it hard to find a Vet that will do it. Most have stopped cropping ears on dogs who’s standards don’t call for it.
That is a good way to screw up a dogs appearance.
sorry but i do have, a beautiful picture with an english mastiff naturally .i don’t have one with cropped ears, although it sounds a little cruel. if you cant get one or see one, you could consider getting one of these beautiful dogs with their natural look, or if not those two ideas you could maybe look for a similar dog with naturally cropped ears.
hope i helped!
hope you find a truly lovely dog.
why would you crop the ears of a mutt? it’s expensive and the aftercare is a pain in the a$$. having gone through it with a show dog I would never do it just because.
