    Why in the world was that done to Her??? What is the purpose of glueing a dogs ears?? It even sounds terrible. I am glad you took care of this for your baby's sake.

    One of Matildas ears wasn't rosebud. Breeders glue a puppys ear to get that shape. When she will let me take a picture of her cute wrinkle face I will show you.


    Who wouldn't love that face???

    I've spoken to many breeders in show and it is a very common practice actually. Usually it is done when the pups are younger, before they ever leave the breeders house. I would never do it, I think floppy puppy ears are cute . I also think some breeders do not do it correctly, however, because I see many bully puppies with ears like bat wings!

    I think the guy that did it that night used too much glue, in my opinion thats why it got infected. I couldn't get her right ear cleaned and dried right.

Then she came back with some adhiesive remover. That worked great!! Both ears are now glue free!! Of course my baby forgave me. Dr. Scroggins gave me Tritop ointment to put on her ears 3 times a day. Screw the standards. If they don't like the way she looks, then I just wont show her. At least she enjoyed riding in mommys truck.

    Oh no! I'm sorry to hear that! The breeder offered to glue Biggie's ears when we picked him up in case we ever wanted to show him or if we were that concerned that he conformed to the breed standard precisely. Looking at his cute smooshy face, we couldn't dream of changing it! Well, his ears rose back about a week later without glue anyway... lol.

    They do that over here in England, don't agree with it myself, although my dog is a pet only.
