I got my puppy 3 weeks ago today she was 3 days shy of being 8 weeks old and her ears are already up and have stayed that way. I have had people ask me how come and I don't understand how this could be. I have had 2 shepherds before this one and their ears would come up and flop and lean against each other. The other puppies in the litter ears were up also. I have all the papers and saw the parents so I know she is a purebred shepherd, has anybody else experienced this with their young puppies? I was kind of hoping they would grow as she does and then start flopping and leaning because I find this to be so cute.
