    Default Bulldog ears

    I was wondering if usually both bulldog ears change or can their be one unchanged? I know another member @Aldo4ever is having the same situation with her pup as I am! One of Lola's ears have changed but the other is limp and has no signs of changing. The other one changed about 3 days ago. Thanks!

    It can go eather way, so you can just waite or I also know that some people use glue to try to perk them up. Not anything stronger than the one that is used with false eye lashes.

    Her ear has no signs of changing but I go to the vet on the 9th and I will ask what he thinks I need to do. She looks cute but I like the look of the rose ear that she has. Im not sure I would want to glue it because thats got to be uncomfortable for them. Anyone have any other advise?

    I just got my first bulldog last Saturday. The gluing of his ears did not go so well. Not sure if the breeder put too much glue on there but it was haven for bacteria, yeast, infection. It is skin on skin glued together for days / weeks. My dog stunk and baths didn't work. Once i was able to get his ears apart and clean them the smell instantly went away. We are still picking little pieces of glue off of him but trying not to take anymore hair. His ears are no longer inflamed and we are not going to glue them again. He looks perfect to me and my family. Of course if you are going to show him, you will have to make your loved one endure this procedure.

    IMO I wouldnt glue ears or have anything done to them...Bulldogs continue to grow until about 2 years old so she has lots of time to grow and lots of changes to go through...

    Banks did not have anything done to her ears, but Nitschke's ears were taped done well before we got him.

    Ralph had one limp ear while he was a few months old, but at 4 1/2 months the issue resolved itself. Our breeder told us that it is generally caused by teething, and that if the ear carriage of the parents and pup is generally good then the problem should sort itself out!

    Princess Gracie is 5.5 years old... her left ear hangs down and her right ear cups. Her ears are one of her most endearing features. I wouldnt change them for anything!

    Dublin's breeder did the same thing. I was horrified when I went to pick her up and saw that her ears were glued. (should have been a big red flag for me right there and then) It took me forever to get the glue off but it was the first thing I did when I took that poor baby home. I love the beautiful turned out ears on the bullies, but for the most part dublin's lay down and she is just as adorable that way. They are so unique in so many ways and we should celebrate it not change it.

    She looks exactly like Bruno did a couple days ago. It took 5 days for the second ear to catch up to the first. I think lola's will do the same as Bruno!! Love the lopsided look though! She is SO CUTE!!

    Eagerly and Nervously awaiting the homecoming of Bruno Cannoli
