Great pictures Pattycakes-her ears were all over the place like mine. He just turned 6 months and his ears are up and very firm. Nothing like watching/stressing out over the dancing games GSD ears play.

Your girl is beautiful!

LOL...no kidding. I kept wondering from day to day whether they would stay up or not!
Thanks!

Our GSD is 7 months old and 1 ear has been up since 7 or 8 weeks, the other ear is just now beginning to stand up. They both stand up when she is busy doing something, otherwise the one will droop like yoda's ears.

That is exactly how it is with Indra. Both ears were up before she went into teething and ever since then one ear is down.

My dad is driving me crazy about taping the ear...

Never panic....my boys ears did not firm up until almost 18 weeks old (i.e. almost 5 months). Bully Sticks, Himilayan Cheese sticks for chewing and doggie daycare for tons of muscle stimulation!

He had one up at 7.5 weeks, then it went down and the left ear was completely down until after 4 months old when it was in a comb over (still down) then it became friendly floppy and then firmed up.

Believe me I was worried when one was a comb over at 16 weeks.

He is 20 weeks old this week, in the middle of teething and both are holding firm

Here you can see how much time it can take....

Franks ears came up at 12 weeks and never went back down, I've heard people say they may go down during teething, at what age is teething completely done? so I wont' have to think about it anymore, he's 6 months right now.
