When will I know how my German Shepherd Ears will stay?

One up one down

One up one down

I have been advised that once my GSD's adult back teeth are through this will determine how his ears will stay. (Up or down)

Please would you advise me at what age will his teeth be fully through?

Thanks, Suzanne, Lancashire

While waiting for more info, please start here to read more about German Shepherd puppy ears, and what's potentially going on, right now

That'll give you a good overview of why the ears go up and down in the first place and what you might try if the ears aren't completely up on their own by around 4-5 months of age.
