    Default Ears

    Just out of curiosity, attached is a puppy photo of Daphne and her sister and a recent photo of Daphne. Daphne still has the sticky outy ears. They have kept her sister to breed. They said because the sister is red. Are Daphne's ears a fault? I adore her and think she's the most perfect Bully ever because mothers are like that. I was just wondering, that's all.

    Cannot tell much from puppy pics and I'm certainly not a judge. But as I understand, flop ears are undesirable like on the red specimen...and the ears on Daphne are a bit low on the head. I don't see either as show winning bullies. I see two really cute bullies, especially Daphne. She's so dang cute I can't stand it.
    Then again, the bully that won best of breed at Westminster this year I thought was a very poor representation of the breed. I was disappointed. But some judge, that knows confirmation a lot more that I do, felt differently.

    Thanks for your input. I'm a bully novice so I figure if I don't ask I'll never learn.

    Again, I'm no expert. I think some here will likely have better informed opinions that I.

    Bass' Dad was a show dog and I read up on it when he was a puppy - in case I ever decided to show him…I believe RoseBud ears are the "desired" look? But that was years back…I don't know if standards have changed. RiiSi knows a good amount of info for show dogs…are you thinking of showing?

    BTW, her ears look perfect to me….she's too adorable for words!!

    No, not thinking of showing, just trying to understand the different ear types. I didn't know if Daphne's big ears are what made the breeder keep her sister rather than her. She did say the red color was more desirable for her.

    Probably the color…this was from an article posted on the Home page by Bullmama in 2011...

    "According to the breed standard set forth by the BCA, here is what is stated:


    "Color of Coat -- The color of coat should be uniform, pure of its kind and brilliant.
    The various colors found in the breed are to be preferred in the following order:"



    • 1. red brindle
    • 2. all other brindles
    • 3. solid white
    • 4. solid red, fawn or fallow
    • 5. piebald
    • 6. inferior qualities of all the foregoing.


    However, you should not let this particular standard of color deter you from starting your bulldog in dog shows/conformation.
    There are many champions that are not red brindle
    If you and your bully have what it takes, go for it!"

    They are still young yet, and the ears will change as they grow. The red bully's ears are undesirable at the moment, and may rose back, but not likely. Your bully's ears are rosing back some and should continue to get better.
