My dog's acting weird...?

She's a German Shepard, middle-aged. She has an average weight for her breed. Has ear infection problems most of her life and growing problems too. She used to be afraid of going outside because of a summer bird incident (lol) but now she she doesn't care. she just goes outside and stares at anything and everything. doesnt respond to my calls. freaks out if I move to abruptly. what do you think is wrong? I'm scared for her.

maybe she's just adjusting to not being afraid of going outside, maybe there are some side affects from: ear infections, growing problems and stuff... maybe take her to a vet if your really concerned... :)

Staring + "freak out" due to abrupt movement ... may be signs of eye problems. You should have her checked by a vet.

Calling a vet is a suggestion. Maybe she is just adjusting to going outside because my dog got hurt by another dog and wouldn't go outside unless i walked him. Maybe she's loosing her hearing. because my friends' dog would do that.

Sounds like she may be loosing her hearing. Ear infections can damage hearing. Show her extra love and patience. Take her to the vet and get her checked so you'll know how to handle her. Hope she gets better!!

It could be eye problems as been previously said. My friend's dog wears contacts so if it is eye problems there's a solution :)

Hearing loss, almost certainly. Your vet can provide a diagnosis.
