my new puppy is 5 weeks old. her mom was full blood pit bull and her dad was half sharpei and half bull mastiff. i want to hunt with her in the future and tails and ears tend to be problems when hunting. so can i still crop her ears and dock her tail

The tail has to be done within the first 2-3 days. I wouldn't suggest doing it now. Is there really a reason that you need to have the ears and tail done? A lot of your hunting dogs have non cropped ears.

The ears are cropped around 11-12 weeks, but the tail is done when they are about 2 days old. Now she'd have to be put under anesthesia to have it removed, it your vet will at all because she's older.
