This may or may not be true for other dog breeds, but it’s truly a distinctively dachshund trait: the ears flipped back. It’s rather common to see one ear flipped, but I find it particularly charming when both ears flip back. This seems to happen more with Rufus than Emily or Lily, and it is just one more reason why I love my low-riding hounds. Do you ever see the double ear flip in your doxie(s)?!

    I agree with you Johnny…Lacey always has 2 flopped ears and Jacob when his aren’t sticking straight up then at least 1 ear needs fixing…I always try to take a pic of him if 2 are flopped.

    My little red Peanut frequently has an ear or two flipped back…especially while walking when there is wind…my little longhair black & tan Rainey never has a flipped ear…I suppose because she has so much more hair there…the little shorthair black & tan Bella shakes her head to cure the flipped ear problem so I don’t see her ears flipped often…Peanut never figured out the solution to the flipped ear problem…

    all the time!!!

    I always say my black & tan Maddie is doing her Doberman impression when both go back! She usually shakes to put them down,

    Usually one ear at a time. Only on my Black and Tan!
