First off, let me say that I've got a mixed breed, so his ears may never pop like a true shepherd. Anyway, My baby boy is coming up on four months and still has floppy ears most of the time. When he sleeps on his side you can see true GSD ears, and today we went boating, and his big ears were up like a couple hood scoops facing into the wind! Anyway...if they haven't popped up by now, do you think they will stay floppy, or is there hope for him to look more like a propper GSD? Oh, also, his coat was solid reddish when we got him, now he's blonde with a black stripe down his back!
