Puppy ears? ?

I have a Chihuahua Terrier Mix, but she looks like a lil mutt😂❤️ I’ve seen that mix around before and they either had completely floppy ears or erect ears. When I first got her she had floppy ears and now they stood halfway up and stopped there. Not sure if that’s supposed to happen because I’ve never seen dog’s ears like that. I’m just worried so that they won’t lead to ear infections.

    Very few breeds have erect ears.  Yes, totally floppy ears can lead to more ear infections, but your dog has in-between ears.  So she may have less of a problem than a Lab or hound 

    We see ear infections (more often in swimming situations & hot humid weather)  but your vet can show you how to clean them or what products to buy and use (proactively) to prevent ear infections.  Call your vet for a consult or advice.

    She looks like a lil mutt cause she is a lil mutt.

    And "terrier" isnt a specific breed. There are many breeds that are part of the terrier group.

    Her ears are fine.. They are what they are

    I had a lab with floppy ears and persistent ear infections.

    I had a GSD with stand up ears and persistent ear infections.

    Each dog is different.
