First Dob - Is it normal for ears to sometimes point inward?

Hello everybody! I had posted my dog's ears consistently and about a week after turning 6 months, I stopped posting. It's been about three weeks ago and her ears are very straight and point upwards very nicely. But I want to say about once every other day, when she's outside in the sun, they'll tilt inward. But then when we go back inside, they'll point back up like normal.

I was wondering if that is normal or if I should continue posting? Thanks for the help.

Hi Mack! And welcome from the Pacific NW.

If you could post some pics of her ears when at alert and some when relaxed, that would help.

There are tutorials here on DT to aid you in posting pics.

Any Mod can help you. Their names are in red.

Try checking out the threads in this forum:

In particular, look at the one on ear pockets

and see if you think may be what is going on. Posting a few pictures from the front and side of her head would help us help you.

Welcome to DT from Utah. Love to see pic's of your pup when you can send any. At six months it just doesn't sound like you are through posting. Each dog is different depending on length of
crop and width of base or strength of cartilege. Don't give up on posting yet.

Pictures please--from the side and from the front--I have seen and posted lots and lots of ears but I can't quite visualize exactly what you are describing.

You'll get lots of answers and suggestions if you get some pictures up so we can see what you are seeing.

If they are tilting inwards, I would suspect you stopped posting too soon and your pup may have what we call "pockets". Personally, I'd start posting again with bumpers, but some photos would help, so we can see what's going on.
