Default My GSD's ears seems too small?

He's about 7-8 weeks old and his ears looks way smaller compared to the other GSD puppies. Do you think his ears will grow in time?

Pictures of him:

Working lines tend to have smaller ears...and usually they go up really fast because of that. My pups looked small but they grew with him and for a time his ears looked huge(around 15 weeks).

Your pup has a white streak on his forehead and down his chest, do you have his pedigree?
Could be mixed, so the ears are smaller?
He is adorable!!!

Yeah he could be mixed, I'm not sure. Unfortunately I don't have his pedigree.

Well that's a relief. Did her ears looked like my pups ears when she was a pup?

Your little guy is very handsome reguardless of the size of his ears, thanks for sharing him with us. To me they look normal for his size.

Raina is a working lines from Germany and her ears are shorter than Pyrate's ears were but they grew up just fine and they popped up early and never went back down.

Ok so this may be a stupid question but, how can you tell the difference between working and show? I am a first time GSD owner and I have read a ton about training and socialization for my pup but, i'm just curious about this cause I have seen a lot people use these terms.

Sometimes it's easy to pick out a working line dog and a show line dog, others' it's impossible to tell without a pedigree.

Your pup could certainly have another northern breed in there. He's very good looking, I hope you stick around and post pictures as he grows.
