Default Ears Up?????? Photos

Would any of our members be interested in posting some photos of their GSD puppies with ears before and after (and maybe in-between) the standing process for me to feature in this section for our members/viewers who maybe questioning if their puppy's ears are going to stand or not? I think it would be helpful if those of us who have already experienced the puppy ear stages could share. Sometimes itís easier for others to understand and be patient when they can see pictures from others who have gone through it. Iíll be posting some of my Scooby to this thread but Iíd like a variety if possible.

If you are interested, go ahead and post them here. Thank you.

Still down at 9 weeks:


Coming up at 10 weeks:


Ears up at 3 months:


One week before I turned 4 months:


Ear down at 4 months - "I'm teething"


Back up 3 weeks later at almost 5 months:


Here he is at 9 months - still standing!

I feel so much better after seeing the photos of other shepherds with their ears half up, half down...I have two shepherds, "Voodoo," who is 14 months old and "Chopper," who is just 3 1/2 months old and have been going crazy about Chopper's ears.
Voodoo has one that never did stand up properly and I wanted so badly for Chopper's to stand. Voodoo's mother's ear does the same and I have since been advised that is a trait that will be passed on.
Chopper's breeder, however, has told me none of his pups have ever NOT put up their ears, so I am hoping his one "floppy" will still rise.
It does here and there but not on a regular basis.
(Both dogs are AKC)
The breeder advised me to feed Chopper yogurt to help give him more cartilage and although it sounds crazy, when he eats the stuff, the ear does seem to stand better!
What about taping? Who can do it? Does it work?
He is such a gorgeous dog, as is Voodoo, but the ear-thing really detracts from their looks.
I'm new to the site so hope this is not too long or involved.
Thanks

Hi sheplover04 and welcome to our board.
I hope you don't mind if I started you a thread of your own here ----> Voodoo's Ears.
I just don't want your questions to be overlooked and I think you might get a larger response if it's in it's own thread.

Reno at 9 1/2 weeks:



Do you think his ears are "BEHIND". I look at some of the other photos, and the other pups ears are up or are real close to being up at 9 or 10 weeks. Now I am worried.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/429.gif[/img]

I've previously posted about all the "up and downs" we've had with Cooper. Rio, his littermate, was the exact opposite. His ears were up by 6 weeks and stayed up.

Rio at 6 weeks - very small "bat" ears.


At 9 weeks you can see how much his ears have grown.

Couple more of Gus taken today, he's 9 weeks today. I think we're starting to get liftoff! Good advice Nicole, I think that extra calcium early on could be a big plus -- your guy is gorgeous with those big ears, and I love how much the coloring changes. I love this puppy stage, but I'm also anxious to see how he's going to turn out! BTW, couple more pics of Gus and his big brother Gizmo in the Pictures section.

Hey guys the pictures are great. Do you think we could keep this thread just for the ears pictures? I'm afraid your questions and/or advise will get lost in this thread. Could we start a new thread in this forum for your questions and advise? Please - Thanks.
