Never make someone a priority in your life when that someone treats you like an option.

EARS - Ears are high set and may be natural or cropped without preference. If natural, semi-prick or rose are preferred.

FIGURE 10A - Pic1 (photo credit Ruth Kramer Arkay Kennels) shows a dog with uncropped "half-prick" ears. The half-prick ear is a preferred shape and is not often recognized by judges even those very familiar with the APBT. Pic2 (photo credit Ruth Kramer Arkay Kennels) and pic3 (photo credit Candy from Colorado) are natural rose ears of different lengths this is a more common natural ear for the APBT. The natural ear in past standards was considered preferred over a cropped ear but because the common image of the APBT is with cropped ears even then excellent dogs with natural ears were often overlooked.

Minor fault: Prick or flat, wide ears are not desired
