    Default Help with Tulip Ears!

    Hello All,

    I just posted an introduction thread on the introduction forum.

    I have 2 English Bulldog puppies from different breeders.

    My beloved female called Piper is 4 months old and she has Tulip ears. Please check her pictures attached.

    I got help from Jose here in South Florida (a member of this forum) and we glued her ears for 3 weeks. We did see a small result, but her ears are still pretty much erect.

    We left it alone for 3 weeks, and we will re-glue one more time next week.

    The breeder is not being helpful at all. But he suggested I find a experienced vet to stitch her ears so the cartilage can be broken. Have you guys ever heard of this procedure in English Bulldogs?

    Any other suggestion?

    Thanks a lot. Any help is really really appreciated.

    Ohhh..I love those ears! We have a couple with a variation of those! Why do you want to change them? Are you interested in showing her?

    Very cute pup, I would not do anything with the ears, especially if you are not going to show her.

    Yeah, me. Dont worry about the ears. When she gets older and stops teething they should "rose" for ya.


    Who wouldn't love that face???

    I love her ears!! I didn't realize bully's had to have them "fixed". If it's not necessary I'd leave them be.

    I glued Dozers ears because they were quite floppy and his mother had tulip ears. MY vet said NOT to stitch them that the cartilage doesn't break like people think. The problem you face is she is already pretty much too old for gluing them to work very well. Just love them
    If tears could build a staircase and happy memories a lane, I could walk right up to Heaven and bring you home again!

    I agree with the rest of the pack. As for gluing, I know it should only be done by someone who really knows what they're doing and has done it before. If she's not showing, and she's happy , she's gorgeous, just the way she is

    I won't be showing her. I guess I just feel frustrated since the breeder told me she had perfect rose ears.. I didn't know better. Some people just take advantage of others in order to make money.. very sad.

    I wanted her to look like an English Bulldog, not like a French Bulldog LOL :-)

    But yes. she is adorable, very playfull and I love her color.

    She absolutely does look like an English Bulldog! with the cutest ears
    But i can understand your frustration w/what the breeder told you. Still, you have yourself a little doll. No need to do anything w/this beautiful girl!
