I have been looking for a dog that doesn't grow but looks more mascaline at the same time so I am about to try to buy a french bulldog but the only problem is I dont like how their ears stand straight up and I wanted to know if it was okay to get a french bulldogs ears cropped?

I could be wrong but I always thought that "cropping" Meant to make the dogs ears stand up. I do not know if french bulldogs are born with ears like that or if the breeder mabe has them cropped before selling?

My grandma has a Frenchie! Their ears are naturally like that.
Seriously, if you do not like the ears get another breed. Ear cropping for your preference is terrible! Good luck trying to find a vet that would actually crop a Frencie's ears.

Have you ever had a dogs ears cropped before? I used to have show dogs that had to have cropped ears to show. It was awful!!!! We now don't show and leave their ears natural!

How about an English Bull Dog? They are short stockey guys, they grow to be about 70-75 lbs! Cropping a dogs ears is done to get them to stand up such as the Doberman or Boxer. Thier ears are floppy so people will have them cropped to get them to stand up. If you like the Bully breed but dont like the ears to stand up then try the English Bull Dog!

I have a 18 month old french bull and her ears where up when she was 16 weeks old, but her littermate is a beagle, and I think he influences her, so just when she means business do her ears stay up .. then they are back down.. shes adorable.. but normally they are naturally up... =)

I have bred french bulldogs for several years and I do not suggest cropping their ears. The ears are a big part of a frenchie.In stead of trying to change the breed why don't you try going around to you local dog pounds and rescues close by to see if they have a mixed breed that would fit your wants and you would also be saving a precious animal!!

Also if you do not wan't a mixed breed you could try a Pug....they look alot like the french bulldog and have floppy ears...and they are not very exspensive either.

French bulldogs ears don't need to be cropped. They are born with those bat ears
