What Shape is Your Dog's Ear?

It seems that every sport, specialty, or interest group eventually develops its own language to describe the things that are important to them. The world of dogs is no different.

When they describe such common things as the shape of a dog's ear, people in the dog fancy may use terms which are unfamiliar or undecipherable by the average person.

While most people can visualize in their minds what might be meant by a prick ear or a drop ear on a dog, they might have much more difficulty visualizing what is meant by a rose ear or a button ear when it refers to their canine pet.

Take a look at a richly illustrated glossary of dog ear shapes.
