We were talking about the number of amputations done on working police K9's at the Sch club the other day. Apparently it is more common than you are lead to believe. I think tail injuries in hunting and working dogs happen frequently, and that is why many breeds are docked.
As for cropping, it is aesthetic. That being said I prefer cropped. I have not seen puppies have issues after cropping and do not think it is cruel. I would say it is much more painful and invasive to do a spay than an ear crop. Yet, I still advocate spaying pet bitches.
Maybe after they stop circumcision without pain killers on human babies, or even piercing babies' ears.. then we can move on as to whether cropping and docking dogs is inhumane.
