I saw a pit-bull type dog at the shelter with ears that were docked very short to the head. Does this indicate that this dog was used or was intended to be used for dog fighting?
What do dog fighters do with the ears of the dogs anyway? In old days didn’t they used to dock them real close to the head?

It does not intend that they were fighting dogs. LOTS of people dock the pitbull ears. Doesnt mean they are fighters.
docking was to protect the ear ina fight so the ear wouldnt get ripped off as the dog wouldnt have anythin to grab
