Hi, Bella is 12 weeks old. Right about 10 weeks her ears went up and looked like this.




Right now she looks like this



Sometimes both ears are perked up. It feels a bit too soft and I'm considering tape or gluing. Should I just wait or go ahead if so what should I use?

Wait. What you're seeing now is completely normal. Take a look through the other threads here and you'll see pups with ears that go up and down LOTS. It's funny the ear acrobatics they can do!

If, at around 5 months old, you aren't seeing any signs of them going back up, then you might start looking into tape/glue. But no need to worry yet.

The fact that they were up once is a good sign that they will go up again.

She is very pretty!

I read that it was normal but I was just concern about how floppy it got. It almost got as bad as when she was 7 weeks old. I though since she likes to sleep on that side, that might be the reason the ear was folding down. I guess I just over reacted then. Let see what time does.

Give it more time. This is perfectly normal.

I think its normal. When Sash was 12 wks, he got the conehead ears they went every which way and then stood up just fine.
