She's not. Recon is a border collie. And the picture with Sir was a joke I think.

It's not the pitbull she's trying to make have prick ears. It's the border collie (I think it's a BC, right? lol). The pit bull just wanted in on the action

Yes, Sir's was just a joke. I put it on and he shook it off a few minutes later.

When I got Tully, I threatened to tape one ear to the top of her head so it would stand, and she'd have a proper one ear up/one ear down set like the Stafford I already had. Tully's breeder said okay. Which I think was partly because she really didn't care, partly because she figured I was joking, and partly because she knew it wouldn't work anyway. They were already rosed.

I do love mismatched ears, though.

Well this is how they turned out! Glued them yesterday morning and everything is still holding well, though HIS left is is still a little flippy at the top.. I may need to add a toothpick and some more glue/tape.

Part of the reason I was so keen to adopt my first Stafford, Elmo, was the ears:



At an agility trial early on, someone once asked me:

"Does it bother you that his ears don't match?"

I said no, I liked them, and she said,

"it would drive me crazy!"

Which I'm guessing is why she has cropped Great Danes.

I wouldn't use a toothpick or anything hard. Too much risk for injury that way. I'm not really sure what you could use since I have no experience gluing/taping for erect ears that aren't cropped, but definitely make sure that whatever you use is somewhat pliable. I know for Dobe puppies, a lot people seem to use backer rod wrapped with duct tape for sturdiness. That way it's stiff, but the ear can still be played with and bent without getting injured.
