njk Our girl's ears have been weird, they were floppy when we got her:

then went up fully:

then one flopped down to the side, I'm guessing from teething? it seems to be going back up lately

gurlonfire2004 Stormie only had floppy tips on her ears when I picked her up at almost 8 weeks. A week later, both ears were up with one slightly turned in. It straightened up in a couple of days. Then we had a couple days of one up and one to the side. And the ears were back up and have been ever since. Stormie does lay her ears back often, though. She is 20 weeks today and has gotten about half of her adult teeth now. I am glad that I don't have to worry about whether her ears will come up or not. However, the flip flop ear stages are super cute!

DonnaKay Mystique's ears were both up when she came home at 7.5 weeks old.

Then about a week later, one flopped.

Later that day, the other ear followed suit.

Both ears stood back up a couple weeks later.

Ears up ever since!

Jaxx's mom Jaxxs ears were never floppy either. I guess it's good, but I do feel like I missed out on something. But, id rather have them ALWAYS up than NEVER up (but that would be cute, too!)

HarleyTheGSD You should be very happy his ears never flopped down.

shepherdmom My boys ears came up shortly after he came home at 12 weeks. They have not yet gone back down and he is now 19 weeks.

Someday he will grow into them.

SunCzarina Thick strong ears. Otto had one up the day he came home at 8 weeks.

We had I think it was 10 days of random up and down before they were both up and never went back down, not even when he teethed. As an adult, his ears are like soft fuzzy leather

Shade I personally love the "flying nun" stage best

I admit I messed with his ears (not roughly of course) all the time, they were too adorable to resist and I got him used to cleaning them often at my vets suggestion and it never hurt how strong they were

kakarot Awe, he's so cute!

But yeah, that's about as floppy as my pups would be. There were only a couple times where I saw his ears get kind of lazy.. and I was super excited to snap a photo of it. After that second time though, I never saw them [his ears] get tired (tired as in.. floppy. haha)

Shade Good genetics

This is the floppiest Delgado's ears ever went. I admit I was really hoping to see a tiny bit of floppiness but alas it was not to be...
