I just bought a German Shepherd pup last Tuesday.I noticed that his sibling's ears were all up except for his.Decided to ask the breeder if his have been up at all.He said they are usually up in the mornings but have gone down since and told me not to worry.His ears usually are up in the morning,while playing,or go up in the wind while running.
It sort of concerns me..that his ears have not been up at all and he's 4 months old.
Should I be worried?He's still teething and it looks like his ears may be lifting a bit..but not too sure.
I'd just like other people's opinions.

Zoe's ear were not fully up 100% of the time until she was around 5 months. Sometimes they would flop to the right, other days to the left...some days just one would stick up. My vet told me to be sure when we pet her, not to push her ears down or back while petting. Stroke them up while you pet him. That will help- or at least it did for us. I'd give them some more time before you resort to taping them.

Question (for anyone, really): Are floppy ears on a GSD detrimental to their health that taping at any age would be required? Is the concern dirtier ears and ear infections or are floppy ears just a cosmetic no-no? I can see the necessity if you show, but what about the average, everyday pooch?
