18 weeks, should I be worried
One ear is up ( and over to the left a bit) but his left ear is floppy. They were at the teepee stage about 2 weeks ago.

He will be 18 weeks tomorrow.

Worry at over 5 months. Use inserts then if they are still floppy. Give bully sticks and a few nice raw knuckle bones or knee caps.

He gets lots of things to chew on, both toys and treats. Is raw fed so has chicken wings,thighs,legs on a regular basis.

Will see how they are after Christmas then, I am planning on showing him. If they don't stand he will just be my pet but I would obviously rather they did stand.

Tape them at 5 months if they do not stand, otherwise it will be too late.

Logansmom 11-14-2012 01:23 PM

Not really sure on taping, don't know anyone who has done it or what is involved. If it would hurt him then will not do it, will just have a pup with one floppy ear..

okay so now the other one goes up at times but flops back down like when he moves his head.

Wish there wasnt this to worry about :(

Well we have had teepee and both up and now one up and one to the side.

5.5 months and teething badly, noticed some missing teeth, teeth coming through and blood.

They will come back up right ??

This is him just now
( he got glass in his paw at local park)

and a month ago

I think they will come up. When teething they do drop they ears. Just think positive!:)

I do try, no one at his ringcraft training has said anything about strapping or glueing so hopefully all will be well.

I am going through the same thing. My shepherd had both ears up at 13 weeks, then both down at 14 weeks. One went back up at 15 weeks and the other back up at 16 weeks. Now 18 weeks, one back down. I am guessing she is teething. Her ear has been down about 2 days now. Hope it goes back up
