Hello,I have been looking at the pictures of all the Akitas and noticed that all of their ears stand up,even the mixed Akitas. I have an Akita/GermanShepherd who will be a year old on April 15 and his years do not stand up,is it because he is mixed or do the owners usually have them fixed to stand up??I welcome any information!Thank-You

I think most mixes just end up with ears that stand up straight- just like akita ears. Look at bruce, he's a mix, with perky ears too! So if yours lay down, that just means you are extra special.
