Default 9 month old ears still not up?

Purebred german shepherd female named Ava. Her ears go up *sometimes* when she's just waking up. 2 minutes later the right ear goes back down.

She was born September 10, 2013.

Is it still too late to correct the ear or could it still go up?

i heard that you should have started doing something at 6 months but have you tried anything ? i heard stuffs like taping it n gentle massage or even feeding them unflavored yogurt and cottage cheese. But i also heard dogs are lactose intolerant . Please do your own research ... cause those are just the things i read online.. good luck

I have tried taping but my other dog rips it off right away and I feel like it's doing more harm than good so I left it off I've researched so much stuff and everyone says if they aren't up by 6 months they aren't going to go up. Then other people say their dog's ears have went up after 9 months. I just wanted to see if anyone else has had this problem. She's such a beautiful dog; its a shame her ear won't stand on its own.

I feel like my GSDs ears would be too heavy for those but I will give it a try! Thank you!

Get earforms leave in for 3 weeks straight. Use eyelash glue or pattex glue from canine callidus.
