A lot of dogs these days undergo cosmetic surgery early in life. You may or may not realize it but many dogs don't generally have pointed (or at least as pointed) ears or missing tails. Tons of dogs have their ears and/or tails "cropped" when they are around 12 weeks old. This is pretty standard in the US at least, although ear cropping is actually outlawed in England. So what are your thoughts? These cosmetic mods don't really hurt the dogs (in the long run), and it's how we are used to seeing certain breeds. What are your thoughts?
