I Love how much the ears in each individual puppy differs so!!
Our male Enzo (Who isn't with us anymore, *Sniff*) has the worst looking ears for such a long time! He was the major ugly duckling of the litter :P But had our hearts. He was 6 months + before they finally stood!!
Where as Bella had erect ears at 8.5 weeks! It's insane! lol. I had so many people in stores ask me about her ears, what I did to make them stand so early...nothing! I just love all the variants per puppy!

I am beginning to agree with this 100%. Nala is 8 1/2 months old. I have glued ear forms, taped with rollers, nothing worked. The last week or so they have been standing on there own a good portion of the day, so I am keeping my fingers crossed.
Yea I have a 4 month old german shepherd puppy and when she first wakes up her ears go up but then when she is awake they go down is this normal and do you think they will go up soon?
I have researched, talked to breeders, trainers and seen two different large breed vets, over this ears not standing thing.. The bottom line if they stood at all, they almost always, unless they have been injured will stand again.
I think my vet in north ga hit it on the head when he told me he is seeing more and more ears standing later and later especially with German show lines over the years as breeders have been breeding for larger heads and ears for the " look" ..
