OK, I am sorry you are in this situation and I do not want to sound like I am scolding you as the situation "is what it is."
However, I am hoping others that are looking for a puppy will read this and learn from your post. It cannot be repeated often enough that if you get your Doberman puppy from an experienced and conscientious breeder, THE EARS WILL ALREADY BE CROPPED AND THEY WILL TEACH AND MENTOR YOU HOW TO TAKE CARE OF THEM TO INSURE YOUR SUCCESS.
Best of Luck.
