Question by sabrunette: What are the chances my german shepherd puppy will continue to have floppy ears instead of them pointing up?
My german shepherp puppy is not full-blooded but very close, looks exactly like the standard to every detail other than the fact she has floppy ears. She is only 4 months & I am praying they stay down because I love it so. If she is to start holding them up, around what age would she do this?

If she’s not purebred, then your guess is as good as mine. My first BSD had both her ears up at 8 weeks old. My current BSD had one ear up at 8 weeks old and the other went up at 10 weeks old.
For GSD the ears can flop down during teething (4-6 months old), but usually they will have been up here and then before that. If your dog never had her ears up, then it is less likely that they will ever stand.
