    Nice looking baby, and the ears so far look good, and at 12 weeks old, I wouldn't glue them. It is usually done at about 5 weeks old. We have never glued any of our pups ears and they have always rosed back.

    He looks precious and his ears don't look floppy to me. My younger boys ears rose up at around 11 weeks and they were a lot floppier at that age, so don't worry. And even if they don't rise and you're not going to show him, you just keep his ears clean and there's no problems. He's no spaniel No matter what kind of ears, they need to be kept clean.

    @Scueva
    Thank you. This will be my 1st bulldog. How can you tell that the breeder has glued them? Which picture give the impression? Would love to learn the trick.......

    Puppies ears don't naturally hang that low- usually what is done is the ear is folded in half and downward- and the top part of the ear is glued to the bottom part. Many people have issues with this but it is harmless and most serious show breeders will glue the ear to basically train the ear cartilage to lay that way- as the standard calls for the top of the ear to be level with the top of the skull. So in the third pic you posted it's hard to tell but it looks like the ear has been folded over and backward to expose the "rose" and by glueing the upper to the lower part of the ear it retrains the cartilage to lay in that direction. More often than not you will see a bulldog with rose ears but they are high set and are not level with the top of the skull. So glueing helps pull the ear down to keep it level with the top of the skull. Check out you tube

    Scueva, thank you for the explanation. Last silly question, i presume the glue will not be forever right? Ie eventually will the glue disconnect? Just worried of it being cruel to the pup. Thanks again

    The glue will naturally wear off in 3-4 weeks. It is possible for some dogs to have a mild reaction to the glue such as bumps or minor hair loss- neither is really a big deal as they will subside when the glue wears off.

    He is adorable! I think his ears will perk up a little. Bulldog puppies grow into their features. Just make sure to clean his ears regularly if you see buildup. I use these for Ruckus: http://www.petkin.com/Jumbo-Ear-Wipes-80ct-p/5322.htm. They are gentle and he doesn't mind the smell. Good luck with your new puppy! Post more pictures once he arrives!
