Maybe I was just lucky. The only dobe I had that was cropped was my first big red. After the cropping, healing and stitches out, the support came off; his ears stood great and I never reposted. Actually, at that time I never even heard of all the reposting like is being done today. Maybe it's because of the long cuts now. My guys cut was between the European and current cut you see here. Fit him perfectly.
