You can see them when she's got wet feet and is being a ninja.

Oh, no I knew they're a C/D breed, but, I honestly never knew they just took them off strait across like that ! Again, it's so hard to tell anyway with all that hair, lol.

Here's another one:
Wow, that's a new one, the smoother coats do show it, but I seriously thought when they said the ears are cropped I was thinking, you know like maybe a Briard?

I get so many people that look at me funny when I try to explain that Beaucerons are related to Briards just without all the hair, then the arguments start "But they aren't cropped!" Uh, sorry but hate to break it to you those ears aren't natural all the coat just hides it well.

Well, I don't know about fully prick but someone I know had a puppy with semi-prick ears like a Border collie, really cute! Here's Mini
