I agree with you...plus with uncropped ears Dobies look like Labs - who are very cute but not Dobermans, who are Handsome!. I’ve had 2 and can’t imagine having another breed.
More buttinsky $%#& from the left. They just can’t keep out of people’s business.
I have found the same people who object to ear and tail cropping, support getting a dog neutered or spayed. Both are for health reason IMHO. Our Dobie also had his dew-claws (sp?) removed. I’ve had dogs with them removed and without... far better for the dog (and me trimming the nails) when that pesky weird nail is done. As usual... it is all about control.
