I respect your opinion but to me you sound a little bit ignorant.
Firstly, the standard allows both cropped and uncropped ears. I´m not sure what you wanted to express with "suit their soft mentality" but the only reason for that addition (I guess that word suits better than "change") in the breed standard was the cropping ban in some parts of the world.
Do you believe the creators of the breed (if still alive) would have rather shut out all uncropped Dogos worldwide from breeding for good and called them - like you did - "unqualified"?
Secondly, you aren´t seriously comparing possibly hereditary traits with natural kept ears, are you?
And thirdly, please explain to me, why uncropped ears make dogs "become something less than what they were bred for" when even US breeders like Los Cazadores kennel have posted that from their own longtime hunting experiences uncropped Dogos don´t hurt their ears more frequently than those dogs with cropped ears.
With the conclusion that there´s actually no real reason for them to have their hunting Dogos cropped.
(Of course that´s a completely different story when it comes to hunting in Argentina, which we (or most of us) all know from Marcelo´s numerous explanations).
