Will My Puppy's Ears Prick?

by Brittany S

She's about 5 months old right now, and teething, so her ear set is all over the place. But when she lays down or is looking up at someone, her ears stay erect and don't fall even if I flick them gently or fiddle with them. They just bounce back into place. During play or when she's standing normally, however, they just fall either to the front or side.

This is the first Aussie I've owned, so I'm just wondering if there's a chance they'll still prick, or if it's pretty much decided by her body by now. Either way I'll love her. I'm just curious!

If you have an Aussie with prick ears, at what age did they prick and stay pricked?
