Thanks, She is my first GSD, her newest sister (another) GSD is coming home on Wed. Stand by for pics of Indi and Dixie. Don't even know what color or pattern Dixie is at this point. I just know I have an appointment Wed afternoon to bring Indi for their meeting and then she can leave the foundation and come to her new home. I'm so excited I can hardly sleep or contain myself. I have been on a puppy proofing bender for the last 2 days and Dixie is a 2 year old fully trained Female. I guess I am just nervous that the meeting will go well with no dominance issues or fights. Indi is so calm and gentle that I cant imagine having a problem, but dogs do have the tendency to surprise us all the time.

My girls ears went down while she was still quite young and have never shown any inclination to stand after that, but she is still a loveable mess that we love a lot just the same. Heres a pic of her sitting beside me soon after she joined the pack

My boy went through the same thing. His ears stood up for about two weeks straight, and when he started teething, they flopped back down. Though his left ear is still trying to decide what it wants to do at one year old. It stands up about 80 percent of the time. Just to be safe, I would try taping his ears now. I used regular breathe right strips and eyelash glue. Good luck! And your pup will be beautiful either way.

Yep, my guess is teething.
Here are a couple of things you can do to strengthen puppy’s ears.
1. Ear Exercise: Whistle or make a sound that will “perk up” the dogs ears. Do this about 30 times per day.
2. Give them large raw bones: There are 150 muscles in the jaw that when exercised strengthen the ears due to the knowing, tugging and chewing the bone. Introduce at shout intervals as the rich marrow material or bone fragments could cause diarrhea.
3. Feed skinless chicken necks as part of their meal. It has naturally occurring calcium.
4. Gently pinch the base of the ears together and massage the base without bending the upper ear.
5. Unflavored Gelatin powder: Sprinkle on 2 Tablespoons per feeding. This is found by the “Jello” in the grocery store. It is made from animal collagen. The brand name is Knox Unflavored Gelatin or Great Lakes Unflavored Gelatin.
Hope this helps!

Ear dance help!!
Hey guys, I have a 12 year old female sable gsd and my wife and I just brought home a new black/tan saddle back gsd...she's 4.5 months old now and doing great. However, this week her left ear went down! They were both up and going strong for probably 3 weeks then all of a sudden that stubborn left ear went down...I don't see or smell anything in her ear and she doesn't scratch it any more then normal...I've forgotten about the puppy teething "ear dance" because of how old my other baby is...anyone just get through this that could help me out? Is it just normal "ear dancing" due to cutting teeth? Any help would be great and I'm sorry if I'm being redundant... Thanks Vinny!
