Unfortunately nothing has changed her ears are still the same. I have started adding gelatine to her kibbles since 2 days. I also managed to find someone that imports the Orijen Large Breed Puppy so I am thrilled to get my first bag hopefully tomorrow so that I can transition her slowly off the Royal Canin German shepherd junior. I will most probably add some yogurt to her diet and some vitamin C. Regarding the yogurt I read one must add natural yogurt but am still researching what type exactly seeing there are all sorts of calcium levels depending on what yogurt one chooses. I am also not too sure if one must use the fat free, low fat, double cream etc. so will hopefully find some info out there regarding which yogurt is best to use.
Seeing she a week short of being 5 months old I am very tempted to let the breeder tape her ears but on the other hand I worry that the other puppy might injure her when they play.
Never imagined that ears could make me so concerned and keep me so occupied…
I added some pics because she is so cute floppy ears and all
She is clearly defective and should be donated to the goodwill ASAP. Just kidding hahah! Omg your baby girl is so adorable, I was dying looking at her pics of the cuteness!,! Her ears look like they want to stand up? Regardless she is just a gem. She makes me think of my black gsd I had, but didn't get him until he was an adult. i always imagined what he looked like as a puppy, and now I have an idea. Thank you :-)

Salino I found out that my girl was teething due to her gums being a bit bloody and she was generally sensitive around her snout area. I also founding teeth everywhere lol. When you check in the mouth you will see the new teeth seem overly large compared to the baby teeth. We decided to have the previously mentioned canine pulled by the vet under anaesthetic seeing that **** tooth didn’t budge one bit and the vet also said seeing it isn’t loose he would prefer to pull it so that it can’t mess with the new tooth. It was a quick thing and I feel better knowing it is out

Teething usually begins with the puppy's coat change to the adult coat around 16 weeks of age, and lasts until about 7 or 8 months. Keeping an eye on the alignment is a good idea, and offering some cold or frozen fresh raw chew bones(knucklebones) is helpful during those painful times.

Salino Thanks mydogs for your reply. I have been adding plain natural yogurt to her kibbles and I will hopefully be able to see the breeder today that will help me glue or tape my girls ears. I would have no idea where to get ear forms here

Salino Hi onyx’girl, she has been getting smoked beef knucklebones but I definitely will get some fresh ones for her this weekend as I like the idea of chilling them to help her with her sore mouth. Thanks for the tip so simple but I never thought of it.
Hi kiya, I guess you are right but seeing she is a German Shepherd I really would love her ears to be up and there is so much conflicting advice out there that it is difficult to decide what to do. I managed to get hold of the one breeder that offered her advice and on Friday I will take my girl to her for her to see the ears and then to either glue them or leave them. I the gluing causes her any discomfort at all then I will leave it alone and just accept that the ears will be floppy but for now I would at least like to give it a try.
Hi Ace, so happy for you that the ears finally made it. What a cute puppy.

Ace GSD Look what i found today and i dont mean tha dog.. some of you might not understand how happy i am lol.
06-24-2014 10:35 AM
kiya If her ears were meant to go up they will. My first GSD'S ears only went up when he made them go up. I wouldn't mess with them. They may go up when she's older.

Thanks DJEtzel I have spoken to the breeder again that offered to show me how to do it and am waiting for her to tell me when I can come through. I will remind her again today as my little girl will be 5 months old tomorrow.
She is teething so badly I keep finding teeth all over. I am also keeping a good eye on her 3 puppy canine teeth which are still there even though the new ones are pushing through.
Can you find a fresh beef or lamb knucklebone with some cartilage go give her as a chew? Chewing those helps strenghten the head muscles and the cartilage is beneficial nutrition for those ears. It will also help loosen those puppy teeth....wen fed chilled it will soothe the pain of the teething as well.
