I've seen several people come to the forum and ask about getting a Doberman with natural ears. The response on this forum is that we have nothing against natural ears but no reputable breeder will let that happen. It should be up to the owner whether or not the ears are cropped. If you don't plan on showing your dobe this should not be a problem with the breeder or anyone else.
You have tried to have this discussion on this forum before, and I have warned you about this before. The crop/dock debate has been done to death.
I will refresh your memory: https://www.dobermantalk.com/ear-cro...-doberman.html
Again, we're simply stating that, in this country, the breed standard calls for a cropped ear, and a docked tail. Until that changes, it is difficult to find breeders who adhere to the standards we'd consider ethical in terms of breeding to the standard (in terms of the entire dog, which is important for function), doing appropriate health testing, breeding good temperaments, etc.
It CAN be done, but it requires being patient, waiting, seeking those breeders out....
This is NOT the place to have a crop/dock debate. More breeders may be willing to do it, but they are still few and far between.
