At what age do a puppies ears stand alone if theyre going to? I have 2 chihuahua/feist mix puppies and was wondering about what age they will stand. Right now they are up but the ends flop so I'm pretty confident they'll stand. I saw both of their parents when I went to pick them up and both of their ears were erect also.
Baby chihuahuas sometimes don't have both ears up, it takes time for the muscles to get strong enough. You can help her ears to perk up by gently massaging them. Rub your hands up and down the side of her face (cup her head and do both at the same time) and back and forth. If her eyebrows end up on her forehead or she she looks like she's had a bad face lift, you're doing it too hard.
Sometimes a chihuahua will have one or both ears suddenly droop when they start losing their baby teeth. If her ear(s) are still flopped after 5 months, odds are they'll never stand up. That doesn't matter unless you intended to show her. She doesn't care about her ears and neither should you.
Chihuahuas ears are generally standing by 12 weeks or so, but will tend to flop sometimes during teething....as the last post said, by 5 months you will know for sure, and unless its a show pup, I wouldnt worry about trying any tricks to help them
