Maggie had the cutest floppy ears as a puppy. And they seemed too big for her head. I remember one day I looked at her and thought if Dumbo had a puppy it would be her.
I didn’t mind it so much. In fact I thought it was adorable.
At some point though I started to wonder and I asked myself the question all floppy Boston Terrier puppy owners ask:
At what age do Boston Terrier’s ears stand up?
And right there Google showed me article after article that a Boston terrier’s puppy should be up by 4 months.
Easy enough right?
Well not exactly. Because now that I am a breed advocate, and have been exposed to literally hundreds of puppies either online or in person I realize it doesn’t take into account the following:
- What do the parents look like?
- What kind of ear fold does your puppy have now and how old are they?
- What’s the weight of the ears?
- What does it mean when the tips of the ears fold back?
- Can I Tape My Boston Terrier’s Ears Earlier?
So instead of giving you one answer I’ll attempt to answer this very simple question based on the different factors.
