This video illustrates how a GSD Puppy’s ears might look at just under 4 months of age. Especially note how sometimes this puppy’s right ear is flat and pointed hard backwards, and sometimes it is flopping. The left ear is up nicely. This is all within the range of normal in my experience, especially based on what I know about my own bloodline. Particularly because that right ear is sometimes pointed back hard, that means the muscles are working, and in all likelihood that ear will stand. A good rule of thumb for me is, if they haven’t been up by 4 months, consider taping! Thank you to Connie’s new owner, for this great video of Connie playing with her Jack Russell family member. We will re-evaluate in one week!
