Cherry eye is common in many breeds, it is considered heriditary in many breeds, it is considered cosmetic, often you can push it back in to place, but generally it comes back. My lhasa has two, his are still soft after all these years but I manipulate them back in place on a frequent basis, so they have remained soft, with his latest problem I may not be able to do that and they will most probably become hard. I would not recomend doing this for years, my dog has other problems which made operating risky.
Most vets do this surgery, it is minor and I would suggest having it done, because even if you are able to put it back in place it will most likely come back. They can do this a number of ways I would suggest not allowing them to shave it off in any way, stitching back in place is better. I know there are others on the forum who have had this done, I hope they chime in.
