So this might be the place to post this....
My GSD is 12 weeks today and when we got her about 2 and a half weeks ago her ears were up. Now one ear is up and one is down flopping over her head toward the other ear. I read online this is due to teething and that this ear should go back up on its own. The breeder also told me yesterday when he called to check on the puppy (which, btw, I think is GREAT that he calls to see how everything is going with his puppy) that the ears should go back up around 5 months or so. He told me I could tape them if I wanted, but he would suggest waiting it out. Taping seems like such a hassle and a little risky (b/c of infection) for something I am not too overly concerned about to begin with. The breeder also offered to take her back and give us a new puppy from the next litter in the fall if I wanted, but I am not too overly concerned about it since she is a pet and already a member of the family. I cannot imagine giving her back since my animals are treated like kids and I would not give a kid away because it had a floppy ear.
All that being said, is this ear flopping thing common and will they really go back up after teething? If so, does anyone know the reason? Thanks much!!
