Do the ears drop at some point? Libby has one ear now that sits lower? It looks kind of funny, so I'm hoping that the other will drop to match.

TIA!

It could be worse...she could look like Tuffy did when she was a puppy

She seemed to have one ear up and one ear down for the longest time but not to worry, they both eventually dropped. Libby is absolutely adorable!

There is a good possibility that it will drop...I know litters can have some puppies with dropped ears and other puppies with ears that haven't fully dropped yet. It may also just be a slight "fault" she has in one reason why she was placed in a pet home or something, just like if she had a slightly high rear, or something like that. I haven't noticed her ears being offset on her pictures, though. lol

I can't help it, I'm laughing as I'm thinking back. Pixie was my little bat dog. It was the cutest dang thing! Yes, the ears will probably both drop, this is something my breeder reasured me of. Here is a puppy picture of my Pixie and a picture of her now!

Don't be alarmed just yet. Althought I don't have a pic, Star had one ear that was down, while his left ear flopped back. Eventually he had a matched pair!

How cute! Pixie's bat ears were kool!

Libby will be adorable no matter what, but I'm sure they will drop.

I once fostered a puppy with bat ears like that. They did both drop. Very cute while it lasted.

They others seem to have answered your question, but I could not resist saying how cute those bunny ears are on all the pups.
