Lightbulb natural standind ears?

What's with the pits who have ears that naturally stand up? Where does this come from? And are all pits feet webbed? A friend of mine has a male who's ear stand straight up without any altering. And his feet are "webbed"..... my females feet don't look like his? Just curious

My little AST Tweak has full pricked ears. When she was younger she had a very nice natural ear set. At around the age of 6 she came down with something like Bells Palsy and ever since then her ears have stood straight up. She looks like a donkey but we love her to death.

Hmmm. Well what about puppies...you know when their ears start to flat down and stuff....what if they go up instead of down? I've seen a couple pups like this too.

Funky ears are perfectly normal in this breed. Part of why you don't see it even more is because so many crop the ears.

Ears position doesn't effect performance/working ability so really IMO is not a big deal.

LOL Patch! This coming from someone who owns gorgeous dogs with beautiful ears! Hehehehehe.
Elvisfink, that is a pretty AST.
My girl Sweet Pea had prick ears going for almost a year and then they sat down one day and hardly ever come up anymore. Like Patch o Pits said, funky ears are pretty common in the breed.

yea all the males i've owned have webbed feet. my female( i have a pic of her in my photos) her ears have always stood up on their own. now that she is older her left one has started to flop over a little, but it's cute on her, she's petite , so her big ol' ears just give her personality i think.

From my understanding, some have webbed feet and some dont. Normally, pitties with natural standing ears are called bat ears or prick ears. I've had a handsome bat eared pittie

Hmmm. I didn't know if it had to do with a "type" of pit or maybe if it came from a certain bloodline somewhere along the way? It semi facinates me I guess. Gives them a little bit more personality
