If the father was a shepherd mix, then I would say that your dog is also a shepherd mix. Have you considered a genetic test?

It's quite common for the ears on Shepherd mixes not to stand, especially when they're mixed with a breed with floppy ears like a Lab. Hard to say how large he'll be since he's a mix and you don't know the weight on the parents. Given his suspected mix and current weight, I'd guess at around 70-80 lbs, but really you'll just have to wait and see.
