Are A Deaf Dog's Ear Canals Closed?

Are a deaf dog's ears closed entirely or is the canal open and they just can't hear?

Depends on why the dog is deaf. If it was born that way, then probably the ear canal is open just some part inside did not form properly. If it is an older dog with chronic ear infections (like Cocker Spaniels) then deafness could be from long term damage and the canal may appear closed from the damage and inflammation.
