Red face This could change... Or not.

Do U have a DoB? // If not, did the shelter or rescue guesstimate her age at adoption?
How old is she now, approx?

Pup's ears may not decide if they're gonna stand or fall until they're 5 to 6-MO; teething, cartilage growth & relative stiffness, the size & shape of the growing pinna [the outer ear] all can change the ears' positioning.

Some dogs have a 1-up, 1-down as grown-ups; some have a rose-ear & a terrier-type tab ear, like hers.
There's no sure way to predict how her ears will develop, or if they'll stay as they are, now.

Some dogs even have 1 ear they can "lift" to prick when they're alert, & it falls when they're relaxed, while the other ear is a drop or rose or tab-ear. There are all sorts of variations, matching & non-.

My ACD puppy has gone through a few iterations of ears. Both floppy, right floppy but left standing up, and now both up.

Good looking pup!

I think he looks cute with the different ears. Besides they are just as loveable regardless.

He's still growing. They're going to change two or three more times before he's through. :-)
