He is absolutely gorgeous, such a pretty face and will no doubt grow up to be super smart and obedient , unlike my idiot dog who has decided that sitting on a chair with us at the kitchen table is the thing he most wants to do in the world at the moment... don't ask xx
As I understand it, it is not unusual for GSD puppies to go through a floppy ear stage. They have somewhat large ears, and for some it takes awhile for the cartilage to keep up. I've heard that it is unusual for their ears to stay floppy as adults, but that some can inherit what is called "soft ears" in Sweden, but you won't know for sure if your puppy is one of them, until they're around 8 months old.
My older lad's ears took nearly a year to come up - he looked like a bat for about 2 months, then had what we called 'helicopter ears' for another 2, where they stuck out to the side like rotor blades. Our young lad's ears were up at 8 weeks.
