Have you ever seen adult teepee ears?

So I am picking up a Forster pup who is about a year old still a pup but pretty much full grown all teeth are in. Her ears are soft not floppy but soft? I think it is cute not trying to fix them. Just want to know if anyone has seen adults lHave you ever seen adult teepee ears?-20190517_122316_1558360246522.jpgike this? She was found a stray so I am not sure if she is pure.

My friend had a dog that maintained his teepee ears his whole life. Was a LEO K9. It's adorable She may also be younger than a year. From what I have been told it's difficult to *very* accurately age once full teeth are in. Looking at her still knuckled growth plates in the 2nd pic (sideways, sitting) my guess would be a little younger than projected. She is beautiful, enjoy her!

I believe they are referred to as bonnet ears. Sometimes a dog will have one bonnet ear and sometimes two. I think it is genetic like when a dog has a curled tail.

You should get a opinion from a vet who specializes and tapes ears and familiar with gsd ears. They may be able to help correct the ears if you want that. It is harder to correct ears after a certain age but worth a try.
Ask around to see if they can recommend someone in your area.

There's one on Instagram - Omega - and an older lady at my club has a female that has that same earset. She said the sire had it too. It's definitely cute. The pup in your picture doesn't look very old, though, imo.
