Our new pup, Parker, does the ear dance, but doesnt like us to see....

Ears went up about 3 days after we got him (they said he was 3 months, but 1 month later, he still hasnt lost his canine teeth). Then 3 days later one went down. 2 days later the other. They have yet to go back up and its been 2 weeks.

We kennel him when we are not at home. If we wake him up from his nap when we get home 1 ear will be up then goes floppy as soon as we say hi to him.

Hopes its ok I posted a couple pics

I was worried. xp mine is going on 9weeks and for his entire 8th week they were up.
What a relief, thought the crate killed them.

My gsd is now 11 weeks and his ears have done everything. At first they were down. Then all the way up. One up, one down. And now to both up.

Same here

Karley is 11 weeks old. Both ears down as expected at 7 weeks both up by 9 weeks now 1 down. She plays with our 6 year old (Kandy) rolling around ruff housing and the 6 year old grabs her by the head with her mouth. Could she have damaged them? I stop it when I see it but it might be too late. I'm hopefull because when she can't see me and I call her both ears will go up for a second then back down. thank you

Sorry for the thread hi-jack.

I would not even worry at that age. My shepherd plays rough with my basset hound all the time. Here ears didnt even first come up til 13 weeks, then back down at 15 weeks, back up at 16 weeks ,one back down at 18 weeks and back up at 19 weeks. She is now almost 21 weeks and both ears are still up.
