Gemma's ears weren't completely erect until she was 13 weeks and since then they have never flopped.

Also, yes, Gemma cried often during the first few nights and constantly woke me up. But after ignoring her for those first few nights, she got the hint that crying wouldn't gain my attention, and she stopped. As long as you completely ignore your girl's cries, she'll give up. And by completely ignore, I mean don't even make eye contact with her.

We got our Chi from the Humane Society, and she did the same thing. The first night she was perfectly find sleeping in her crate in the livingroom, but after that she screamed (not just cried, but screamed) all night long. After the third night I moved her crate into our room and she was perfectly fine. Except now I can't leave the room with her in the crate or she freaks out.
But it helped us get some sleep at least.

What LittleGemma said worked with every single one of our fosters
