So I shouldn't worry yet that my 11-12 wk old pup's ears are down still? I've read about gluing the ears at around 4 1/2 months old if they aren't up. Hopefully it won't come to that though.

Isn't your puppy a mixed breed? His ears may or may not stand up, depending on his genetics. I certainly wouldn't worry about it at 12 weeks old. As others have said, they'll be up and down until he's done teething. If they look like they're trying to stand and just need a little help, you could try taping but if they're floppy because your dog has some floppy-eared breed in his background, no amount of taping will cause them to stand.

Yeah, that makes since. Well if they look like they want to stand I will consider it.

I heard from a breeder that a good way to get your puppies ears up is to give them frozen bones. Lots of chewing working the jaw muzzles will help create strong ear muscles.
You may want to give it a try.

8/9/10+ Weeks old and ears are not up...-img_7137-version-2.jpgVegas,
Loved your photos. My little Isa is now almost 11weeks and looks so much like your dog. Today her ears were both up for first time (of course they were, she has a yeast infection and they look so red and everyone commented on it!)

I heard that their ears will go up when they are comfortable with their new home. I think it's normal for their ears to go up and down, look like a triangle on the top of their head, one up one flopping. that's all part of the fun times with your puppy. Take lots of pix of those ears. I was told to not play with their ears until they are more mature.

Aww! I missed the cute floppy-ear phase, Josh's ears were up at 5 weeks when we first saw him, down at 7 weeks, up at 8 weeks, one down at 9 weeks then both up for good after that. I would have loved to see the teepee phase and the comb over, too cute!
