    I'm with everyone else. She is perfect the way she is, and she has the cutest ears whether they are rose ears or tulip ears, they are as pretty as any flower. Unless you want to show her, I wouldn't worry about her ears, they are as beautiful as she is. Just enjoy your bundle of cuteness. My male Bulldozer developed what the vet said is a severe underbite, after a growth spurt when he was 5 months old, his mouth and jaw were normal when I bought him at 10 weeks old. At 5 months old, he grew, and his lower jaw grew much longer than it should, this causes his upper and lower teeth not t meet, so his mouth doesn't fully close, and his tongue hangs out most of the time. He is also missing a few molars on the lower jaw as well. It doesn't affect him in anyway, other than he eats a little slower than his sister Blossom.
    I could have asked for my money back, or got another puppy, as it is a genetic defect, but I didn't want, I never would give him back, I think he is cute and beautiful just the way he is, and it just gives him more character, besides this is the way God made him, and I love him just the way he is. Don't worry about how she looks, or if she looks like a EB or not, she most definetely does and she is beautiful. Enjoy.

    OH MY GOSH She is so cute!! I want to grab her muzzle and give her muzzies (muzzle kisses) my Shelly Bean loves these. I have no advice just wanted to say she is ever so cute and looks very lovable. I wouldn't do anything with her ears and she does look like an English Bulldog a beautiful English Bulldog. As long as she is happy and healthy and like you said your not showing her so I wouldn't do anything with her ears I think they are adorable.

(Small bulldog world out here) Then Laura emailed them to me. The comment from the judge was that her ears "would need to be glued" if she were in any more shows, in order to win. I'm like, "WTF?" They're perfect, yo! ha ha Here's a shot from the show. Go figure. You may be interested to know that her ears are totally classic bulldog now. She grew out of the "flops" apparently. They might not be show quality ears but I LUB EM!!!!!

    I love her ears gives her more personality in my opinion. I can't answer the questions you are asking but my thought is unless it is a problem for her don't mess with a good thing

    My Punkin has one 'frenchie' ear too. Will post a pic later.

    I say leave them be ... Because they're beautiful! Uniqueness add to their charm.

    DON'T GLUE THE EARS!!!!!! Firstly, your bully is PERFECT!! Those ears are adorabull and she will grow into them!! My breeder mentioned to me at 6 weeks that she was going to glue Bogey's ears back to "make them perfect". I strongly asked her NOT to do it because I knew I would never show him, and I didn't care if they flopped a bit. Well, I went to pick him up at 8 weeks and one ear was glued! I was NOT happy. She said the glue would wear off and I could actually "pick it off". Well, 3 weeks later this ear is still glued solid and I started to try and pick it off, but it would not budge. My vet took a look at it and said I would have to be aggressive and peel it off, most likely taking some hair and skin with it. So,bit by bit I got it off, but he was raw and it looked like it was getting infected. Luckily he responded to some bacitracin, but I would NEVER let a breeder do this again!!
