Gsd 8.5 months old

Hello,
My gsd ears are up and erect but they lean in when he is on alert. My question is that will they eventually stand up fully straight. Or can I train them to stan up fully straight my posting them. If so how do you post ears? TIA

His ears are fine. Leave them be and they will do what ears do.

I guess what I also should’ve asked is, is it acceptable to breed him once he is of age, health tested, and titled? Even with tiltler ears or is that not ethical since it may be considered a fault?

The ears may straighten out.
Poor pigment, long and splayed feet, weak pedigree, likely oversized(?)... as far as ethics, your boys got much more stacked against him than his ears.

What are you thinking of trying to title him in?

I would be titling him as a CGC and then get him certified as a service dog and hopefully have pups that can be assistance dogs. So his pigment isn’t a big key since he won’t compete in comps. His feet look like that after hours of playing and digging in the sand lol.
