Our puppy is a mini aussie. Her earset is looking funny, should I glue? I posted a picture. (:

Her ears look perfect in her pics. Nice forward button ears. I don't know much about showing dogs, but there was a thread about Aussie ears in the forums a while ago:

I don't know what ear set you're looking for, so I can't say how to help... If you want her ears to stand up straight, you will probably have to tape or glue, but that's not standard for Aussies. Either kind of flop ears (rose or button) are acceptable.

Aussies are suppose to have rose or button ears. Its usually the border collies who can have stand up or floppy ears. I think Mollie's ears are perfect the way they are.

Young dogs ears--especially one from the herding family--change a lot as they grow. Faith had like 4 different ear carriages before they finally settled into what they are now. By the time Mollie is about 5 or 6 mos. old her ears will take the normal Aussie look. Beautiful pup!
