Default I think I have a soft eared pup :(

Grizzly is close to 7 1/2 months and his ears are still not up. They go up sometimes but they fall down after a little bit and aren't strong. My mom wouldn't let me glue his ears, so that was kind of a bummer . Do you think there is still a chance they could come up naturally, I know the gap is closing. I will love him no matter what but I would love those handsome GSD ears. Any input is greatly appreciated

I have heard that if there was ever a time when they both stood, they will stand again.

I am in the same situation. My pup is 8 months old on Friday. Had ear forms in for two plus months, fell out last week and ears flopped again. My trainer tape them up for me and I plan to keep them taped till she is a year old or they stand on their own since the tape is not bothering her. I have heard that some Sheperds ears have stood as late as a year so I guess there is still reason to hope..

I will hope! They have also already stood on there own, nice and strong when he was 12 weeks. They then fell a month later, probably the start of teething, but haven't come back up.

They really look like they have good bases and as said since they stood before, most likely will again. He is a fine looking pup.

Thanks, I hope they will come up soon. I also thought his bases were strong. If they come up I will make a thread so you can see them!
