My stud is now 9 months and 12 days and i'm a little worried about his ears, i have never seen them completely up besides a handful of times but at this age i'm very worried my dogs ears wont come up. I've never taped his ears and hes only had 1 infection that we cleaned out. His pedigree is flawless and his parents have both erect ears who stood up at 7-8 months. What could it possible be? Could he just need a little bit more time or will they be this way. both his ears have a little tattoo in them but the one on the right seems to be his ear going inward rather than outward.
