Will Puppy's Ears Stand Up?

I have a 41/2month old male German Shepherd/Husky mix. Is there any way of knowing if his ears are going to go up his father's are up? One of his brothers has one up, but his are still floppy. When he's laying down they point strait out. Is this any indication just wondering? I heard it can take up to a year before they stand up. Thanks.

My German Shepherd/Husky mix dog never did have stand up ears. I thought about that, too, when he was little.

Will Puppy's Ears Stand Up?
I have an all black German Shepherd/Husky mix pup. He is 4 months old, has long ears half up when lying down. His ears are pointed straight when he hears something one ear will go straight up for a few seconds, but will then go down. I am just wondering if they'll go up because of breed combo? This pic was at 3 months, he's now 40 plus pounds and will be 4 months 10/17/10.

If they are not standing up at 4 months they are not going to stand up. But don't you think they are cute just the way they are? So enjoy the fact that you never know what you get in a mixed breed except the best of both breeds. (10/17/2010)

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.)

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.
