Yorkshire Terrier Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 5/10/2006
At what age will a yorkie's ears stand up? My pup is about 9 weeks old and sometimes her ears stand up, but most of the time they are floppy. What can I do to help her ear stand up?

7/8/06 A yorkie puppy's ears should be up by 8 weeks or at least what is termed as popping and the tips my far foward a bit. The main problem in ears flopping is thickness of the ear leather. The thicker the heavier and the ear set has much to do as well. Shaving the full ear is helpful, the breeder should have done it early on as he/she should know this would have helped. Debi
