  • Natural Dane Ears

    We are about to adopt our second rescue Dane. This particular Dane has his ears up, as if they had been cropped. They don't appeared to have been cropped. My question is....Has anyone seen any Danes with ears that are up naturally?

    They won't go up on their own so it is likely that someone decided to tape them up even if not cropped.

      I remember a picture of a fawn from a LONG time ago with his ears up. It looked....weird. I wonder if you could tape them down?

        I don't really know why people who don't do a crop tape the ears so they stand erect...You could try taping them so they will lay flat again...in natural ear show Danes if they get flying nun ears there is a taping method used to train them to lay flat like they should.

              It's interesting to me how it makes it look almost like a different breed of dog. That fawn one remind me of one of those shepherd / husky crosses in the face and ears lol.

                Agree. Our mixed dog looked a lot like this one, her ears went up naturally so we figured she was part shepherd, but her body type was always a little Danish to me too.
