No, its not. Though from pics from previous post I doubt your dog is even a German shepherd. I suppose you don't have any kind of papers... do you?

No because floppy ears lead to weak genetics. Ears are supposed to be erect.

No, it is not ok to breed him if the ears do not stand. It is genetic, and he will pass the fault on to his puppies.

What papers do you have? No way the dog you posted in that other thread is a purebred GSD. Mix maybe, but no way purebred.

Ears up or down, don't breed the dog.
