what should i do?? she turned 5 months, plz help me


Total German Shepherd:


The vet is absolutely correct concerning the genetics component of this but time is running out on any possibility of those ears standing on their own.

You can try taping the German Shepherd puppies ears up.

I would ask your breeder or the vet to show you how to do it and I also have a description of how to tape GSD puppy ears on the site but many people like to watch how to do something rather than read about it.

But at this point I would definitely try taping the puppies ears before time runs out - and if this still doesn't work and your puppies ears remain down I would encourage you to love your puppy for what she is rather than what she isn't.

Because she is still an intelligent, trainable, loving and wonderful part of your family.
