    Default New member with question about ears

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to the forum and so happy to read all the great advice you all give.

    I have a 5 month old male bullie with a floppy ear. I wanted to get your opinions.

    When I got him from the breeder both of his ears were rosed. Then after a week or so, one flopped down and the breeder glued it back. It stayed glued for about 2 weeks. Then the ears were rosed once again, after a few days, maybe a week, the same one flopped back down again. It will rose every once in a while (like when he wakes up in the morning or is really excited while playing).

    The breeder said that I can have her glue it back one more time if I like.

    I was wondering if you guys think it's just due to him teething since they do rose every once in a while. Or will it need to be glued again?

    Thanks for your input, advice, opinions everyone! And I will now go read more of your great posts and look at your great baby photos!

    Welcome! Do you plan on showing your pup? I personally think if not then to glue it back is totally unnecessary as it is purely cosmetic. Now this is just my opinion and your mileage may vary I'm sure the pros will be around soon to help you out on this one.

    If not going to show your bully, I say NO.

    I personally love the quirks and idiosyncrasies of the English Bulldog.

    Like what you just described, to me, would make him all the more 'him'
    and adorable and special...just love your bully for WHO & WHAT he is


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    My pup is 8.5 weeks old and is going through the exact same thing. I am not going to reglue Barley's. The skin is irrated, raw and is dirty. This can't be comfortable and if you aren't going to show, then my vote is to not give a rats batukus about what other people think of his ears

    another update for you. My little bully had a ton of glue in his ears. The left ear came broke free on Sunday, the right ear just came loose tonight after i cleaned it. It smelled horrible and is irritated. I dried it and treated it so it doesn't get an infection but man does it look uncomfortable. I am sure there are ways to glue an ear without so much glue but his ear is a mess. I had reached out on the forums in regards to help with a stinky bulldog and now i am sure it was his ears all along. Poor little guy. Smells great now though

    LOL that's great to hear I think I was more traumatized than my pup when his ears were glued. He didnt mind it at all. The issue was mostly me "checking" them all the time and him getting annoyed at me fussing over him like I always do. The good thing about them being glued back was that it was much easier for me to clean them. Now with that one ear flopping, I just can't take a quick peek inside to check their status.

    I'm thinking they will rose back and this is just due to teething - twice today they were set back nicely until I started bothering him to go outside I definitely dont want to have to glue it again if will work itself out.

    so glad you joined! Looking forward to seeing more of Herman.
    Gracie has one perfect rose ear and one floppy one. Both with perfect spots all over them. It's all just part of her royal charm!
