Re: 8 Week puppy ears (Already standing up)

did you get your dog from a breeder? do you have all of the papers and guaranties? who's the breeder? you probably have a pure bred. my pup did the ear dance untill he was 5 months old if i remember correctly. one up, one down, both up, both down. it drove me crazy.you want them up but enjoy the puppy days. they grow up so quickly. this is my 4th Shep and i was crazy over the ear thing with all of them, that's after knowing better. take a look over at your pup, what are those ears doing now??? good luck with the new pup. a GSD pup is so great to have.

Re: 8 Week puppy ears (Already standing up)

My last male GSD had his ears up at 8 weeks and they never went back down. (That vet is obviously clueless, and has NO buisness giving an opinion like that.)

The pup I have now--of my own breeding--is 3 1/2 months old and her ears have been standing since 6 weeks old and have never gone down. I think this happens more often in the working lines--JMO.

With my white GSD When I bought him his ears were up. The breeder told me they had always been up. And you know what? They never flopped! So it is possible for them to be up very early and stay up.

I have a 6 week old PB GSD pup (I know way too young, but it's a long story) and his ears have been up since I first saw him at 4 weeks old. Most of his siblings' ears were down, only a few of them had erect ears.
I wouldn't worry about it :P

My girls ears were up the day we took her home at 8 weeks! My little guy's ears just went up at week at 11 weeks. Give your pup lots of things to chew- I like the antlers- to build the mussels Good luck!
