Capone, your dog is gorgeous now, and irresistible as a puppy. I just want to kiss that little face.

The price doesn't matter, honestly. It doesn't make the dog and it's up to the person what to charge for their pups, a reputable breeder could GIVE Their puppies to approved homes, or sell them for thousands, it won't change the dogs or their purity.


You're pup is beautiful, and hopefully grows up with a similarly beautiful temperament. I hope you stick around and post pictures as she grows!

Price doesn't make a dog. I paid $600 for my *PUREBRED* German Shepherd from a reputable breeder out of Czech/W. German working lines. My pups ears were also up very early, 7 weeks actually. They also weren't overly huge which I believe is why they stood up so well, so early. Nothing wrong with that, doesn't mean she ain't purebred! My baby girl was also about the same size as your pup at that age, I last weighed her when she turned 9 months old (Been a couple weeks) and she was 63lb.

I've seen some German Shepherds pups who have tiny ears like the OP's puppy, it happens with some dogs. Doesn't mean the ears won't eventually shoot up!

Vet says his ears are small...
Ears Straight up.

There's two post to enjoy that I found on Google that comes up from this board. Guess many members here don't have "purebreds" because of their tiny ears as puppies if that is what you're going to base it off of. I think you guys are being way too harsh about things.

I think the OP's pup may be purebred. My guys, and many of the Czech pups I have seen, have ears up at 5-6 weeks. Often these lines can have small triangular ears.

I agree with gagsd, I've seen a lot of Czech/West German pups when I was searching for mine with the same small ears. A litter mate of my pup had such small ears, but they grew up to be normal GSD ears.

FWIW I'm not sure what I think about this dog, but my all black was definitely the runt of the litter and his ears were up around 9-10 weeks...
