Hello everyone,

I just found this forum and I'm very glad I did!

We have a 6 month old female Cairn and decided to get another Cairn. He is 3 months old but his ears are not standing up, they still flop over.

When we bought Miya, our first Cairn, that was the most prominent feature about her. Max (the 3 month old) still has floppy ears. We bought them from the same breeder and she said in time his would stand up, well that hasn't happened yet.

Has anyone else experienced this with their Cairns?

It's pretty common. I wouldn't really start to get worried until your little one is at least 6 months old. You can try removing as much air from the ears as possible to take the weight off... sometimes this is all that is needed.
