Just about up!

Siggy's ears are just about up!

We bought her from a breeder in Corona, CA, and took her home when she was just over 12 weeks old. Someone else had put down a deposit on her and backed out, so they put her through their training, which added a bit of $$$ onto it, but in retrospect was worth it! It's amazing to have a puppy that heels while whe walks, does a 30 minute down/stay on command, and is just so calm. That put her at about 12 weeks old when we took her home.

Here she is at just under 12 weeks, but still at the breeer.



Here's a pic after running around at the park when she was about 14 weeks old. She had teepee ears, but they were pretty floppy at that time also and were down more than they were up. Seems like they went through a pretty floppy couple of weeks after that during teething.



She's still teething, but here's a pic from today. She's four months old as of yesterday, almost 18 weeks. They're up more than down now, and the right one is still a little bit floppy. They're both soft, but we make sure she has lots of bones to chew. The floppy ears are cute, but we love that she's looking more like a GSD now.



It's also amazing how fast they grow! She was 23 pounds at her first vet visit a few days after we brought her home, but is already about 39 pounds now (five weeks later). They get big so fast!

To get the ears to stand up they have to do a lot of chewing. I never recommend rawhide but they really are a good way to make the dog chew and use those jaw and ear muscles to get them stronger. Also try taking her out for night time walks, they are more alert at night and use their ears to point towards a direction of interest.
