See below...Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought it looks like the puppy is newly cropped, with ears folded over the top of the head and taped down.
It could indeed be from the place you mentioned, tho.
Thanks everyone for your help.
She is from European bloodlines and came from a breeder out west. We were told she had a few white hairs between her shoulders and we were fine with that. But, when we took her out of the kennel at the airport, she had more than a few. The picture posted was taken MOnday night and she is covered.
We contacted the breeder within a day of having her and he was less than helpful and a bit rude. I spent a lot of time researching breeders and would have expected more from a breeder of this calibre.
Our ear crop vet used to breed Dobes and also has 6 of them. She said in 40 years as a vet, she has never seen this. we have had her to 2 other vets and it is a mystery to all.
We are feeding Royal Canine without any issues. She eats well and is without any bowel or bladder issues. She loves to play and is healthy from all other acounts.
Any input is apprciated
