Alsation puppy's ear
My Alsation puppy (13 weeks) has an ear that do not want to stand upright. Please advise if there is anything that we can do to make it stand up?

Hi Karien
This is very common with German Shepherds and often one ear will flop, then both stand up for a few days, then the other flops. Don't fiddle with the ears, but just be patient and they will probably both come up eventually. If you like you can contact German Shepherd breeders to find out more.
