Ear cropping, when done by a liscenced vet, is no more or less harmful or risky than any other surgery. Barring complications, the dogs don't seem to care that it's even done. If they did they would become head shy to an extent, as that is the result of a dog that is afraid due to injury or abuse.
Ear cropping has no medical benefits or risks (past the inherent risks of surgery). A dog with cropped ears is no more or less likely to have ear infections or other problems.
Ear cropping is not only done by 'fighters'. Infact, the ears were more commonly left natural to help prevent fang injury to the ear canal.
Ear cropping done at home is barbaric not to mention illegal. I own a dog with a home crop and her ears are pretty bad.
Ear cropping is a purely cosmetic procedure, done for looks and looks only. I'm ok with that. My dog came cropped. I wish she had her ears, but she doesn't. If I had been thinking when I had her spayed I would have had them re-cropped so that they look better.
