The ears are in proportion to the size of the head and,
if they are carried properly and unquestionably break
naturally, are seldom too small. Large ears usually cannot
be lifted correctly off the head, and even if lifted,
they will be out of proportion to the size of the head.
When in repose the ears are folded lengthwise and thrown
back into the frill. On the alert they are drawn well
up on the backskull and are carried about three-quarters
erect, with about one-fourth of the ear tipping or breaking
forward. A dog with prick ears or low ears cannot show
true expression and is penalized accordingly.
