I remember the first time I saw an uncropped boxer.  Thought it was so weird looking.  Now I prefer the look of uncropped ears.  Some dogs look awesome with the cropped ears, but I still prefer uncropped.

I like both ways, but i would never get it done, but i wouldn't cut out the option of rescuing a dog with cropped ears.

Harley's are cropped, but I like them both ways. I am happy with the way they turned out, I thought they were a little short when we got him home, but they are growing with his head. Boxers are beautiful dogs cropped or not!! Here are before and after pics.

I prefer natural but like Kaity said, I wouldn't rule out a rescue with cropped ears.  Love Odin, Harley, and others with their cropped ears, just don't plan to do it if I ever get a puppy.

I like them Natural.

Personally I would never crop a dogs ears.
I am a former Vet Assistant and have assisted with many crops. Its not a very pleasant thing for the dogs.
The ears have a lot of nerve endings in them. When the dog comes out from under the anesthesia it can be somewhat of a painful experience for them initially.
I just hate seeing them uncomfortable when it isn't something that is necessary.

Please don't take offense anyone....I am not condemning anyone for cropping....it just isn't for me.

Both of mine are natural.  Like many have said, I wouldn't put a puppy through the pain of cropping their ears just for looks, but I would still adopt one that already had cropped ears.

Mine are both floppy.  I think it makes them look much more clownish and fun loving, more like a loveable family dog.  IMO cropped ears make a dog look more like a guard dog, more fierce.  I'm not saying that cropped ears mean that they are fierce, just give off that persona.  

I love boxers and would take one in any way shape or form.  I feel it is a personal choice as to the owner's preference of what look they like and wether or not they are able to have it done.

Titan and Rowdys are both floppy.  I think Titan has dumbo ears but they are sooo cute.  I like the way dogs look with cropped ears.  All three of my dogs could go either way but they are all floppy.  I agree with it makes them look fierce, I like the cute look. But their is nothing wrong with cropped I think it is what ever the owner likes best!!
