Every time someone that dosen't own a German Shepherd sees a picture of my GSD the first thing they say is: "Ears!!"...

Yes folks, she has ears, all mammals do; but I didn't think her ears are that disproportionately large that all people see when they look at her are her ears lol. So i thought id run it by you folks to see if you get the same reaction with your dog, or if I really do have a dumbo girl :( she is a purebred as well.

We get the ears thing too... They all seem to have huge ears, especially when they're growing!

She has beautiful, normal German Shepherd puppy ears. :) I got the same thing from my first GSD. Everybody said things like; "His ears are too big for his head!" He grew into them eventually.

Your dog looks absolutely, perfectly normal for a GSD. The ears are the right size--this is just that "awkward teenager" stage where they look a little gangly. She will grow into them, and will (continue to) be a gorgeous GSD!

I find that most of the people who comment on the ears are simply not used to seeing GSD pups, and are a little rude. I don't walk up to pug owners and ask "Where is his nose??" ;)

How old is she?

Some GSDs just have bigger ears. I never minded people making comments about Bianca's ears, I'd just reply that I guess she never grew into them. People often thought she was a puppy and I think part of it was the ears.

Or I guess you could say, "The better to hear you with my dear!" :D

People make comments like that about my pup. I just brush it off or say, "Yeah! We don't even pay for satellite anymore." They laugh and walk off.
