Will Puppy's Ears Stand Up?

Will Puppy's Ears Stand Up?
My dog is a German Shepherd/Lab mix and she is 15 weeks old. One of her ears stands up occasionally. Does this mean that her ears will stand up eventually like a German Shepherd? And at what age does that usually happen to a German Shepherd?

What a sweet angel. I don't think they'll go up. She has fly-away ears! What you see is probably how she will look all of her life. Very aerodynamic. Not to worry, she is totally cute as is. For an answer, ask your vet the next time you visit. An obedience class instructor, people that show dogs in AKC/Rare Breed conformation and Big "B" purebeed breeders are great sources of information and understand canine genetics (or should.)
Hope this helps. (I have 16 rescue dogs out here in rural Tehachapi, CA) (07/13/2010)

Your baby is beautiful just the way she is! Unless you plan to have her strictly as a contest show dog there is absolutely no reason to make her ears stand if it does not occur naturally for her.
