A family was criticized after they took their dog for plastic surgery because they didn't like the shape of its ears. Vets were asked to lower the Jack Russell's ears because they wanted him to look more like the dog from The Mask.

The vets they visited tried to the dog's owners out of the surgery, but they were adamant. Surgeon Andrey Mezin said he was against the operation, calling it ‘unnecessary,' but the procedure was eventually performed.
