    Default Puppies Ears are very picked

    When I picked the puppy up from the breeder they had his ears "glued" now the glue has wore off after a couple days and his ears are standing straight up! Should I be concerned about it at all or is their anything I can do?

    What an absolutely adorable little pup!

    Glueing is used for aesthetic purposes in some breeds for dogs that are to be shown as there are breed standards regarding ear posture. However, as your lovely little pup does not seem to be of one of the colours that are accepted at shows (the American kennel club lists the following colours for Englsih bulldogs: brindle, white, red, fawn, fallow or piebald) I wouldn't consider glueing his ears. Pups go through different phases so the way his ears look now may not be what they will look like then he grows up.

    Louie comes from show breeders so even though he is not being shown, they still glued his ears so he “conformed” to the breed standards.

    Absolutely lovely pup, but not pure bred english bulldog, since that colour is not in their genes. So you may also get some other type of ears and gluing doesn't really prevent that. At least there will be proper air flow

    I'm sorry, but that is what these fab colour breeders want you to think. There is no chocolate tri in the genes of an english bulldog.

    So are you saying he is not a purebred? How did I receive AKC papers then?

    I haven't registered him yet. But if you're claiming he is not even a purebred how did I receive AKC paper registration forms when I picked him up??

    Well it does look like AKC is taking a very different road from the nation that the breed comes from. I find it disturbing. I don't find the dogs themselves disturbing, but I think the breeders of these colours are greeders and they don't have the breeds best interest at heart. Enjoy your pup and don't mind my opinions.
