    Default Gluing the ear?

    Hi all,
    Heard from a friend that we have to "glue" bulldog's ear if they are not in rose form. I was initially saying that only applies for those intending to go for show.

    However, i was told gluing the ear (in case it doesnt come with rose ear shape) is also important to make sure that it form a rose ear shape to ensure air flows to dry the ear.

    What are your input on this?

    It is true that floppy ears are more susceptible to ear infections. Like with breeds that are supposed to have floppy ears. You can find videos on how Glue bulldogs ears in youtube.

    I am not an expert in this, but I think it has to be done very early in age to work..... @Davidh. @bullmama

    I've never glued puppy ears, they all end up rosing naturally. I have two adults with floppy ears and I love them, their ears are no different in cleaning than my others. As long as you care for the ears properly and don't plan on showing floppy ears can be super cute! But more than likely they will stand up on their own. Most puppies at 8 weeks and younger still have floppy ears. They also are much bigger at 8 weeks and then they start to rise as they grow into them after this age.

    It's 50 % of breaders do it.
    Diesel we didn't do.
    Nula and paisley both got done.
    Have a look on Utube. It's all on there

    Hi, I bet you cannot wait to start your life with such an adorable bullie! They are a blessing and a great joy to have in your life. About the ears, if you aren't going to show the little guy the ears will not be an issue. Out of 4 bullies I only had one with floppy ears. The breeder glued them and after that only one actually stayed in the rose shape so my handsome Guido has one rose and one floppy! Makes him even cuter than he already is. I do not have any issues with his floppy ear and he does hold it up when he "wants" to listen to me haha So long as you keep the ears clean, which you need to do anyway your baby will be just fine. Good luck with your new baby and I am sure he will grab your heart and enrich your life every day!

    @GuidoMarmo
    I cant wait and has been counting days. I live in Indonesia and has been really receive a lot of help from this forum. You wont believe what i have purchased from amazon, to stock up all the referred vitamins, food etc..... I just cant wait.
    Btw, do you mean even by gluing the ear it may not turn out rose?
    @bullmama
    Thank you. I presume this means his ear is sufficiently rose, and i should not worry that it may affect his health?
