Hey my name’s Steve. Just got a Bulldog puppy (Charles) in my home state of Indiana and he is now 12 weeks old. I’ve noticed as he has begun to grow that his ears don’t look quite right and don’t seem to sit correctly on his head. Now, the pet store I purchased him from seems to have closed so I can’t ask them for info on this topic. I know after researching more into the breed I probably shouldnt have made my purchase from a pet store and I regret that.
What I heard online is that you can glue or even tape the Bulldog’s ears down so that they grow correctly or in the right direction? Honestly this sounds pretty mean so I don’t want to do it, but heard that the ears not being right may cause health issues in my bulldog’s ears. Please tell me this is not something I have to do to my dog! It really sounds like abuse. Just not sure. Anyone have an answer? Please Please respond to this post! Thank you!! – StevO 23
No, I didn’t have it done….yet. I’m actually not sure if I want to do it or not, but haven’t ruled it out. Just because something isnt right for you, hailey doesn’t mean the rest of us have to follow suit. We’re doing research all over the place and talking with certain knowledgeable people about what might be best. In fact one person we ran into who is a fellow bulldog lover chose to fix their bulldogs ears also, but they had the ears stapled into place. Apparently they were in the room with the vet who did it and the puppy didn’t even flinch. So I guess it must be painless. The glue also seems to be a little less effective and more messy in comparison. Hailey please don’t judge me for what I do and don’t do with my pet. I love my bulldog as much as anyone else.
