6 month old ears still not up

My 50+ lb six month old gsd has finished teething and her ears still aren't up. What should I do?

Aww she's so cute! I have heard some take longer before they are up but I'm sure a little more time and patience.

She's adorable. Love her expression

Have her ears ever been up, then dropped? They do appear to be very soft.

Mia's didn't both come up completely until 10-11 months old, but they went up and down constantly before that.

If you're worried about it you can always try the taping/gluing method.

Oh my, she's such a cutie!!!
Some People say of the ears are up once, they come up again.
She is just sooooo cute, hehe I actually like her ears like that.
Don't have any advice, never had problems with ears as my boys where up at 8 weeks when I got him.
If you are really concerned, ask your vet about them, and maybe about taping or glueing.
