Hello everyone,

I feel so helpless with this ear. She got them cut at 8 weeks and I have been posting them ever since. Her right ear has been standing since she was 4 months old. However, the left one stands only 50% of the time. I swear it's like she makes it stands when she feels like it. So I constantly post it just in hopes that it will stand since she is still young. Could this be genetic? I am trying to understand. I have no issue still posting it if there is a slight chance for success.

Here is my melanistic female Shiva, the absolute love of my life.

Here is the problematic ear when I clean it and breathe for a little bit:

Here it is breathing again but this time she feels like making it stand:

I don't understand how it stands half of the time...Asking for help/ advice.

Thank you!

Thank you everyone for the replies!! I now have some hope that ear will eventually stand. Here is a picture of how it's posted. I've been reading other posts about the zip ties along with the duct tape so I will be getting those tomorrow. Yes, I use the backer rod method. Some people say I should still post both ears with the bridge.. but it didn't make a difference so I just started posting the creased left ear.

This was when she was younger (6 months) but you can see the posts better.

Appreciate the help,
