‚ÄčLove my girl, but she does have some big ears. I’ve had her since 8 weeks old and she’s from a (very) reputable breeder.

Does anyone else have an adult female with big ears ? It sometimes makes her look so goofy, I wish they were smaller

Malinois are beautiful when they work.

Well they do seem a little on the big side but you may be making more of what they detract from her looks in your own mind. We do get these variations, plenty of them in my breed GSDs too ! As Vito implies, the big ears don't detract from working ability, you do not tell us if she is a working or sports dog (looking at her photo, I would suggest she probably is, rather than bred as a Show dog). The other factor is you do not say how old she is; if she is currently under one year or so, she might yet surprise you by 'growing into them' as she matures.

I think she is very elegant looking.
She does not look goofy to me.
Yes, how old is she? She may still fill out a bit, she is very slim.

I personally always loved the oversized ears some malinois have as puppies/young dogs. Your girl's ears look a bit on the big side but she will probably grow into them, either way she looks great.

She looks hideous!!!!

I'll come get her.

I'm with Jesse and Vito, she may fill out and grow into them, and if if she's a good working Malinois, what ears? I worked with a dog who finally grew into his.

I can probably post 100+ things that are way more faulty than big ears on an other wise sound/solid dog.

no dog is perfect.

but I promise, if this dog had faulty hips/elbows, mega E or weak character (all I have dealt with), you would gladly trade for "big" ears and sound dog.
