Wolves and huskies have substantially more furred ears than a german shepherd. As you can see from my avatar, there are places in his ears where there is bare skin that would not do well with -39C windchill.

Also, since it's only early december, his winter coat isn't as thick as it could be yet, although his coat never gets even close to the thickness of a husky or a wolf to begin with.
