We just got fawn male dobie from craigslist, the lady needed to rehome him due to her going on 12 hour shifts. He seems a little bony, but a very playful puppy. We got his papers and everything. He was born January 14th 2011. His ears were cropped march 14th. They were taped up with tampons and smelled bad. I removed the tape and tampons and his ears are 2 totally different crops, one looks like at an attempt at a show crop the other is not near as narrow and has a very large bell. I cleaned them as best I could and they are still bleeding, and there's black tar goo in his ears, hopefully not ear mites. Is he too old to have his ears corrected? She said she paid $975 for and his ears and tail were already done. They jyst look so ridiculous.
The best thing for you to do is find a vet that does ear cropping and take him in for a consult with the vet and let him tell you if they can be fixed. The black goo in his ears could be old blood from the ear blood draining down into the ear canal but best to have that checked as well.
