I really think that's the cutest stage, the teepee ears. I remember taking Sasha, my GSD, for a walk and some lady asked me what I did to the dog's ears.........silly girl, obviously she's never had a GSD.
Russell is very trusting and loving, and the most confident puppy I've ever been around. Nothing seems to faze him. From all these helicopters that have been flying over the house this week, to the heavy machinery up and down the street, he takes everything in stride. He's always cheerful, lol. And when small children are around, he couldn't more more gentle. For barely 13 weeks, he's got a pretty amazing temperament.
