Question Anyone heard of 'Ear taping' for Bullmastiffs

Bonnie's ears are really uneven, one sits up like a Bullmastiff and the other sits to the side like a Great Dane. I contacted a local breeder who suggested I ear tape to weigh them down to get an even look. Any thoughts on this?

I would accept the ears the way they are.
Just my opinion, I think it looks rather cute.

I agree don't bother most people I know who try this says it does not last. Besides I am sure she is incredibly cute just the way she is, hey it gives her character. Lets see some pics

I agree, leave the ears alone. I bet they're cute! It's nice that all dogs don't look the same .... gives them some character.
