OnyxGSD This is the 2nd taping. They were taped the same way for 2 weeks a while back. Once the first set came off, there was an improvement. Both ears were pointed out like wings, but before, one ear was like a lab. Also, after the first taping, his ears stood straight up on there own; they just crept up time to time whenever he was eager, focused, interested in something or excited. We took the tape off and let his ears rest for a week, then got them retaped.

OnyxGSD What do you mean by looker? And I don't remember the exact day, but it was on a Monday or Friday. They've been taped for atleast 2 weeks, maybe 3 at the most.

SharkB8 He is seriously a looker.

I can't answer the tape question. I got my dog when she was 4 months and her ears were completely up (she is 5 months now). How long ago did you have them taped?

My last shepherd's ears were totally up, if I remember correctly, around 6 months.

OnyxGSD Here's closer pictures. I mean, everything seems shepherd to me. He may appear lab/pit because he is overweight, or so the vet and breeder said. Attachment 155050Attachment 155058Attachment 155066Attachment 155074Attachment 155082

OnyxGSD If he's part lab then he shouldn't grow anymore, because he already bigger than a lab and pitbull. He's massive. I may just call the person I got him from and have a serious talk, because I payed for a purebred, not a mix!

OnyxGSD How long do the ears need to stay taped? It's been atleast 2 weeks. Is there a way to tell if they are up without taking the tape off? And I am just confused. Some say he's mixed, others say he's purebred. A few weeks ago, he weighed 70 lbs. I tried to measure him yesterday, so it may be inaccurate due to him moving around, but he was 22-23 inches tall at the shoulder and around 25 inches tall at the top of his shoulder/neck area. How long do German shepherds grow for? His mother was 90lbs and his dad was 120.
