MaggieRoseLee I'm with the others... if the Rottie is winning out with his ears, they won't stand up no matter how long you tape them.

He's a gorgeous dog with his ears down, just a different look.

His left ear in particular, if it's still folding down at the base (not near the tip) isn't looking like it's 'almost' standing which is when the taping works.

Courtney What a handsome boy

Athena'sMom beat me to it. I think this boys ears may remain down - they were never going to stand because he is mixed with rottie who has a completely different ear set.

It certainly can't hurt (I don't think?) to tape his ears and see. Good luck.

Athena'sMom Rottweilers have very different ears than shepherds. My rottweiler growing up cartilage was very dense. Even though your gorgeous boy is half shepherd it my be just to thick and heavy to stand erect. His ear shape favors the shepherd but how dense is the cartilage. Good luck but my guess is they will remain down. Very adorable puppy!!

German Shepherd X Rottweiler

Hi everyone,

So I have a 7 month old german shepherd x rottweiler mix. He is completely done teething and on Monday I taped his ears. I used the pipe insulation and surgical tape method.

As a puppy and even now before I taped his hears, his ears would occasionally go up when startled, playing, or when he's being attentive. I have worries that it may not go up because he's not full german shepherd. Even though everything about him is basically german shepherd except his short-medium coat and markings.

This is my first time taping dog ears so tell me what you guys think.
