Omgosh sooo cute!
I know of a few poodle/malt mixes in my neighborhood and their ears don’t stand up like that, either has any of my maltese I have owned.
One never knows what your getting when adopting a mix. They could be a combination of other breeds as well. Did you ask the person you got her from. I’d be curious as to what she wld say. Were there any other type of breeds at the home, ex yorkie?

Hi dear,

My maltese also had her ears up until 7-8 months old (sometimes one ear up one down), but eventually when she grew up both of her ears fell down (still not totally symmetric). I'm also not sure if she is a purebreed, so you don't have to worry.

P.S. she looks very cute even with her ears up. :love:

Who cares what her ears are doing, she is just adorable. Seriously, she is just a puppy and I'm sure as she grows older, they will probably come down. Right now, I think she is just the cutest little girl!

Ears up or ears down doesn't really matter - She is so ADORABLE! The pictures show she has so much personality!
I am looking forward to hearing & seeing a lot more from your cute little girl.💞

I have a morkie (Maltese - yorkie) and a vet once told me that he basically has to grow into his ears. Lol.
When he was a pup he had these GIANT ears that stood straight up. Looked like big ol' racoon ears. They did end up coming down. Now that hes full grown hes got big ol' floppy ears. Pretty crazy how those ears are able to stand up like that. Id be willing to bet as they get older the ears will fall down.
