Im hopefully going to see some pups this weekend!! Yay! :D But just wondering about pups ears-when are they supposed to be standing up and should i be worried if the pups ears are floppy? does this mean they probably wont stand up?
Thanks!

Both of my girls ears were up when I got them and never went down. They were both around 11 weeks.

I think some start comming up around 5 weeks but some can take as long as 6 months.

So the answer to your question is, No you shouldn't be worried if their ears are not up yet and no it doesn't mean they won't ever stand up.

yes, ears stand up at different times, and you may find the puppies ears will drop when it is teething, but then will stand up again. I know at 8 weeks keeks ears stood up, but when i visited her at 4 they were floppy

Cooper's ears were floppy when I saw him at the breeders and when I brought him home. All dogs are different - his went up and down a lot in his first year. They just couldn't make up their mind!! :lol:

I like his ears floppy though; he can hold them up straight in certain situations and I don't think he looks quite as cute as when they're flopped over. :D
