Do Floppy Ears on Miniature Siberian Husky Puppies Usually Stand Up?

Another common question new Miniature Siberian Husky puppy owners ask us is whether or not a miniature Siberian Husky pup with floppy ears will eventually stand up. You’ll note in our photo galleries on our Facebook group, and on the site that many of our puppies have ears pictured in various stages—some folded over completely and others with one ear up and one ear down.

It’s completely normal for Miniature Siberian Husky puppies to have ears like this while they are younger. The cartilage in the ear of a puppy is softer than adult dog’s ear cartilage. As the puppies age, the cartilage gets stiffer and the ear is able to support itself.

Most puppies that have ears down usually end up with larger ears than puppies whose ears are already standing up. (We often affectionately refer to these types of ears as “bat ears” ) By the age of months, your Miniature Siberian Husky puppy’s ears should stand erect. In the case of an ear injury or stubborn ears, taping can remedy this issue. This procedure is usually performed by a vet and is fairly simple. THIS PROCEDURE SHOULD NOT BE DONE PRIOR TO 6 MONTHS OF AGE UNLESS THE PUPPY HAS EXPERIENCED AN EAR INJURY. If this procedure is done prior to six months of age, it’s just a waste of time and money.
