The topic arose when a fan asked a question on social media whether they are going to crop Porsha’s ears.
Ashgari answered, “a lot of you guys are asking if we’re gonna lip the ears, crop the ears, and the answer to that is absolutely no.” He continued, “the reason for that is, first of all, we love her floppy ears. Two, she’s a lover, not a fighter. She’s a protector. And three, it actually turns out that it’s pretty cruel to do that to Dobermans, or any dog.”
He further stated that ear cropping is done for cosmetic reasons for the most part of it was proven that ear cropping to prevent ear infections is just a myth.
He, however, accepts that ear cropping makes Dobermans look beautiful, superb, and aggressive like Batman. But, he also thinks that Porsha’s ears are very adorable.
Ear cropping is a procedure that cuts off the fluffy parts of the ears. It is then taped to a hard surface and left for several weeks until the ears stand upright. It is usually done on anesthetized dogs between 6 and 12 weeks of age.
