Default 9 month old female gsd ears doesnt stand all the time? Is this normal?

I have a female gsd 9 months old. Her ears do not remain erect all the time instead they lean sideways in erect position or drop backwards sometimes. Is this normal? Is it necessary for gsd ears to be straight up all the time?

Welcome to the forum! Just go back thru other posts in this 'Ears Up' Section to get hints and tips. She's definitely getting a bit older so you may have to step in, but read thru the past posts to be sure.

I would be helping the ears at this point. By 9 months, the ears should be standing without issue. If you can catch it prior to a year, you can definitely get them up. But it will take taping or gluing and sooner than later. The sooner you get on it, the better your chances will be Best of luck!

It sounds like they are stiff, and just moving to different positions. Do you have the impression that she is in control of this, or do they just flop?

I couldn't find a better chart about body language and ears than this one in a short time...

Pure bred? Papers?

Almost looks like a mutt.

Her ears look pretty good in the picture. It just doesn't look like a purebred which could be the problem. However I do see a lot of German Shepherds ears drop back when they get excited!
