    Default One ear flips backwards

    Hi everyone. My bulldog is 5 months old and her left ear literally flips backwards. I purposely pssh it forward but it automatically goes back. My breeder said it will eventually grow/ flip forward as she gets older. Has anyone ever heard of this? Do I need to worry about anything?

    omg she's adorable.... I know people do different things to help 'correct' the ears, but I would just leave as is as it makes her special and not hurting anything

    Very cute. I think she looks like a mix as well, which if she is, her ears will probably stay like that.

    Default One ear flips backwards

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. Sheís definitely a full breed blue haired bulldog. I bought her from , in Ohio. Very reputable. Maybe itís just her stage of growth at the moment? Iíll keep posting pictures and updates and hopefully the ear has no issues. I do think itís as cute as can be and definitely makes her look different LOL..

    What does it say about the ears in the breed standard of blue haired bulldog?

    No idea. The breeder I bought her from says I have nothing to worry about but I figured asking on forums dedicated to English Bulldogs would be wise. It only started in the last month. As a puppy her ears were both down...

    There is no blue hair in the english bulldog genes, so there is some other breed in those dogs other than english bulldog. There most likely is some other type of ears than bulldogs rose ears there aswell. Even pure blood english bulldogs can develope tulip ears and if mixed with another breed to get some colour you should know what breed it is.
