Taped Ears

So he is almost finished teething, 3 canines to go, and since his ears need a lot of help I decided to tape his ears today. He is 4.5months old now.

Before and after pics, the left ear looks like it needs a little more help than the right. Any suggestions?

I have put your dogs picture with a picture of a Czech/DDR bred dog . Structure is pretty similar if you ask me ! Imagine yours with the ears up.
If someone can resize yours and put them side by side?

Doesn't look mixed at all. Also DNA tests a total BS and a waste of money. He may very well be a soft ear German Shepherd.

JessePinkman Thanks, I actually thought he was a belgian malinois and GSD mix, because he has a lot of belgian physical properties.

We rescued him from the Toronto Humane Society, and apparently his entire litter was there due to someone reporting a breeder having terrible living conditions. All the puppies had ringworm, so we had to give him lyme sulphur dips and such.

Purely due to the fact he is from a bad breeder is why we expect that he is a mix.

He does look like a high gsd mix, but it think it's his conformation that's saying he's mixed with something else. Could be the picture though.

carmspack those dna "breed" tests are garbage .

JessePinkman His ears have stood up at times when he is outside sniffing and alert. His left ear is normally stronger, but not in this picture.

He is also 36lbs at 4months, so I question the amount of terrier in him.

We contemplated naming him Heisenburg, but thought it was a bit complicated. No other planned associates are expected at this point either.

Lucy Dog As he is a mix, you never know. They don't look like they're going to stand anytime soon, so I wouldn't get your hopes up.

Off topic, but any chance your next one is going to be named either Heisenberg or Walter White? He needs a partner.

gsdsar That was one brave Terrier. Wait, never mind it was a terrier, they are always brave.

Still, makes me laugh with the DNA profile, some of the things that come up.

Your boy is gorgeous!!! No idea if his ears will stand. My bet is no. But I am wrong a lot.

Sp00ks He is holding them out but I'm doubting they will stand up. However, that is only a guess.
