  2. My first show dog?

    Dog Sports/Show Forum

  6. Can I finish my Mini Bulll with the tip of her ear missing?

    Dog Sports/Show Forum
    My 18 month old Miniature Bull Terrier, who is currently 13 points/2 majors into her AKC conformation championship, got into it with my year old standard bully last weekend and lost the very tip (very small piece) of her left ear. I am a newbie and this is my first show dog (who I am also...
