Why is this so important to you?

Most dogs' ears are not necessarily up by 5 months. All dogs are different and each one is an individual. There is no such thing as "most dogs".

If you don't want to risk damaging those ears and guaranteeing they will never, ever stand, leave them alone. Messing with them is the worst thing you can do. They are doing fine and don't need to be glued.

Think of how that would feel to your dog. He won't be able to move his ears the way they are meant to move. Would you glue a child's ears to his head if they stuck out?

Stop obsessing about the ears. Put your dog's feelings ahead of your own.
Also when I say up I mean ear folds open I don’t care if his ears are more on the side that’s fine…

@Kiki18 it seems you're also stressing out the folks here that have kindly tried to help and reassure you.Give it a rest for a week or so. When members start getting short tempered and arguing the thread will be locked. New threads on the same subject will not be allowed. Please find a different subject that interests you.

Forms will also prevent those ears from moving naturally and can be very uncomfortable for the dog. The glue can also cause allergic reactions and swelling in the ears. Try and get swollen ears to stand up! Some never will afterwards.

I wasn't suggesting you glue them to his head.

Folds in the ears are normal. They mean nothing about whether or not the ears will stand.

Please just leave them alone, 5 months, 6 months or 10 months. Don't risk damaging them by glueing them.

I'm done here. There is nothing that will convince you that the dog is doing exactly what he should be doing. For his sake I hope they are standing on the morning of his 5th month.

Good luck

You need to stop with the constant updates. One a week is plenty.
It's a public forum. You cannot decide who reads and posts.

Glue.. and fix it anyways I’m done
The only way to make weak/floppy ears stand is putting implants in surgically and that would make the dog lose the ability to move their ears naturally. If they don’t come up then that’s that. Based on your pup’s ears though I’d say there’s a pretty good chance they’ll pop up eventually.

How do I delete this post
you cannot delete a post or thread.
you can edit/delete content (as you already know) but doing that excessively will result in a suspension.
you can request that the thread be locked, but as dogma pointed out - creating new threads on the same topic just because you don’t like the way this one turned out, will not be allowed either.
