Were you asking if there was a functional purpose? Were you talking about the crop or non crop ears on the Dobie?
I've seen pics of Dobies with both natural ears and tails. Not to mention some Rotties with tails left on them.
But for a guard dog, I feel the large ears cropped (as in the Dobie) is to help direct sound those helping them detect things that may need to be checked out.
