Min Pins are "supposed" to have their ears cropped, but neither of mine do.

Its totally up to you, but I think he looks cuter without. Do you really want to spend $$ on something that's not guaranteed? As for the tail, I'm not sure, but I know what you mean about being to long. The vet that did my rott litter cut them "to cover the butt" but rotts tails are only sposed to be 2-3 vertebrae. My bitch's is about that, but he said that was too short. I looked at the difference in the mom and pups and they look funny! So needless, next time, I will INSIST the tails are done to MY specs.


PS, I like your females name! My Rott is named Dakota too! lol

Hi Erin - If you're not planning on showing Dutch or Dakota then I would leave the ears natural.
