My trainer did it for me .. She has been training,breeding and judging for a long time so I hope so. There are foam rollers glued in before the tape so I hope so. Thanks everyone. .

Never give up hope. My U.B. had ears just like your beautiful girl's until he was about 5 years old. Then, they started standing erect when he'd go to the vet, or anytime there was some action going on. And before I knew it, they were up 100% and haven't come down! He's now almost 8 and his ears are beautiful. I know it's not the norm, but it can happen and I have a beautiful male GSD with erect ears to prove it

Yes, seriously between 5 & 6. His ears were never erect, ever. The breeder spent lots of time taping and trying everything they knew to make them go up. He went thru the teepee stage, the bad comb-over stage, and then they pretty much each stuck out to their own side. Everybody made so much fun of him and I was constantly asked what kind of mutt dog was he. Finally, they started standing when he saw squirrels, or was in a state of excitement. Then one day, there they stood - beautifully erect all the time!! Even when he's exhausted they still stay up. I was totally amazed as were lots of folks on this board, but I posted a history of his pics a while back.

almost looks like the ears have some damage to the cartilage , referring to the waviness . This dog has such a beautiful expression just the way he/she is .

Yea I know. That waviness has be concerned too. But at that same time there are times when they are straight up. Here is a picture taken the day before I took the other picture. We were out walking and playing ball. She can at times put them up.
