I'm considering getting a German Shepherd puppy, and I've been wondering about their ears. I've seen some German Shepherds with their ears standing up on their own, while others have their ears cropped like Dobermans. I'm curious about what the norm is with this breed, and whether or not their ears require any special care.
I personally prefer the natural look of a German Shepherd's ears, but I also want to make sure that they are healthy and comfortable. Can anyone share their experiences with German Shepherd ear care, or offer any advice on whether or not I should have my puppy's ears cropped?
Thanks in advance for any insights you can share!
