I'm back

Some of you may remember me from a few years back with Maximus. He was my heart dog and an amazing breed ambassador. I now have a staffie named Apollo, and he is quite a character and I plan on continuing maximus legacy with Apollo and see where this little guy takes me.

Re: OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

I am a first time pitbull owner and i do like the way that this breed looks with their ears cropped. Im not a fan of the healing process and do feel for the dog but i am against the tails being cropped. I have heard from a few people and other websites that tails being cropped will effect the dogs ...

i didn't say they cannot communicate normally, but rather that they seem to be less expressive.



Based on what? Your opinion?

Re: OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

Ok, for the folks who think cropping is cruel, useless, and for cosmetics. That's fine for me, and it doesn't bother me. That is your opinion and you are entitled to it. What bothers me is, the clueless folks that make comments like, cropped ears are prone to dog fights and dogs lose communication. ...

Re: OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

You don't need to explain to me how a dog communicates. I understand it very well. My question to your reply was, what are the differences in ear expressions between a cropped and uncropped dog?

Re: OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

The funny thing is most people wouldn't understand how to communicate with a dog if it spoke in words never mind communicating through body language! I would like to know exactly what expressions you are losing with cropped ears?

Re: OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

My dog never has nor will ever play with or need to communicate with other dogs. That goes for my future dogs as well of any breed . My dog communicates with me fine with cropped ears and we have never gotten into a fight.

Re: APBTs and ACL Tears

I agree with misskiwi, if you understand how the knee works and the ligaments attached to it than you would know its not a genetic predisposition. If your worried how intense your dog is with chasing a ball you could always have him retrieve a dead ball. Which is putting the dog in a stay, throwing ...
