My male puppy's first ear came up a little after 7 weeks when we got him. And then at 8 weeks the other came up. Now at 9 weeks they are looking very strong and he has good control of them. He is a Heidelberg line of GSD. I know they may flop during teething but how many of you have seen them stay up the whole time and never go back down? My female's went up for the first time after teething a little over 5 months. But her's are much longer. They are both AKC and I have pedigrees on them. Thanks!
