I think if you wanted to have a cropped/docked pup, you could adopt it & take it to a trusted vet to be done, depending on the age of the pup, but that would be extra money added.
I really really prefer the cropped/docked look & if they ban it in the US before I can get one, it may just sway me to get my next favorite breed. That said, I do have a liking for natural & all natural too, but if I were to get natural in any shape or form, it would have to be a very good representation of the breed standard, meaning I probably wouldn't rescue. If my dobe has natural ears I love the pendulant ears, not the ones that you see sometimes flop back like rose ears, not light boned like some, & must have the strong cat like feet, but yeah, I've seen some really nice natural looking dobes, but I am picky.
