no offense but, the only way this would be true is if the person looking doesnt have the experience and knowledge to understand what they are looking at.
This is completely untrue. I know a good bit about Canine body language, and it takes more than a stiff body and raised hairs to tell what the dog is going trough. When the ears are cropped, especially the crop job that looks like little nubs of the ear is left, you cannot read the dogs ear signals. The ears are also unnaturally positioned upwards, and that is how they stay because of how the cartilage heals.
My statement is not "completely untrue" What first hand experience do you have to back up your argument or where is the scientific evidence that states what you are claiming?
