That is so sad to me...I have a Boxer and that is near and dear to my heart...I am a member of a Boxer forum and I have to stay away from the cropping and docking subjects b/c its cruel..We rescued our baby as a pup and he was already docked but we were able to save his beautiful floppy ears
I don't understand why everyone doesn't get fined for this...especially docking: two methods cutting with surgical scissors or the rubber band method and NO ANESTHESIA
Cropping is just as painful for the dog and who want to walk around with their ears tapped for weeks, months, maybe have multiple surgeries and still possibly not stand....
The European countries (and parts of Australia) have really started not to tolerate and have banned this inhumane act of docking/cropping
Duchess I am with you all the way...Animals are gifts in our lives not possessions to do whatever we please, we must respect and above all protect them.
