My 14 month old GSD male has bat ears and I was going to

Customer Question

my 14 month old GSD male has bat ears and I was going to show him in conformation but now only in obedience. Would like to know if the skin between his ears could be less, if his ears would stand up straight rather than out to his side
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the bat's name?
Customer: my German Shepherd DOG, not bat, has "bat" ears. They do not stand straight up like a normal GSD ears are supposed to
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about German Shepherd Dog?
Customer: no,
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Good morning, JACustomer. Thanks for your question.

Do you happen to have a picture of his ears from the front and side?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
can I send it to you?
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 year ago.

Please do. You can either attach it here using the paperclip function or you can upload it to a site like and share the link back. I'll be standing by, there's no rush.

No to talk but it may take time to figure out how to send a picture
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 year ago.

No worries. The website offers everyone a phone call, it's not compulsory.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
is there an email address I'm sorry my grandson won't help me until later in the morning to send the picture. It's on my cell phone.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
PS can't afford the phone call
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 year ago.

No worries, it's not compulsory. The website offers it to everyone.

If we need to wait until later, that's no problem at all. I'll be on all day.

Customer service has accepted pictures in the past, but I believe they have stopped doing this because it takes hours to get them uploaded (perhaps no different than having your grandson help).

lol, you may be right!!! I will get back to you ASAP. Thank you for waiting!
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 year ago.

No problem! I look forward to hearing back from you.
