    Your dog is adorable! She likely has a little terrier type dog in her and possibly a bit of Husky. But, it truly doesn't matter what she is or whether her ears stand up - she is "her own dog" and very cute! Cherish her for what/who she is.

    Possibly Husky-Wheaten Terrier mix.

    What's happening in these pups is that their bodies are using their calcium for teeth development instead of developing ear structure. As a pup starts to get its adult teeth, it is, therefore, possible for erect ears to begin to sag and stay this way until they're done teething.

    YOU DO NOT TRIM GERMAN SHEPHERD EARS TO MAKE THEM STAND!

    German Shepherds ARE born with their ears down. They should have their ears up before they each 4-5 months of age. Some puppies have their ears up by 4 weeks of age. If their ears are not up by 4-5 months of age, they need to be posted.

    The mix may not be what you were told it was.

    Mutts do not have standards and it certainly doesn't resemble either of those breeds anyway...

    Because that is NOT a gsd/husky mix.    That dog appears to have more of a terrier type heritage to it.

    It's a mutt.

    Who told you this is a husky/GSD mix?  It isn't. That's why.  Don't believe me?  Buy a dog DNA kit.

    who cares? 

    c'mon isn't personality more important when dating a dog?

    That is not a husky-shepherd mix.  The muzzle shape is wrong for both of those breeds.

    Have a vet run a DNA test to determine breed.  

    If I was making a guess with no information at all, I would be more likely to think that the dog is a labradoodle.  (Labrador and poodle mix)  

    If there is husky and shepherd in that dog - there is not enough of each of those breeds to cause the ears to stand as they should for those breeds.

    hahaha someone lied a bit about the parentage and forgot to add the Rottweiler baby daddy two generations back.

    My own German-shepherd/rottweiler mixes were supposed to be just that, but we are also finding one of them has a lab grandma in her mixed family tree.

    Just let your puppy be who she is and let her be unique.

    That's not a husky and german shepherd mix, there's at least one other breed in there, and there may be no husky or german shepherd involved at all. If the ears are still floppy now, they will stay floppy.
