Unfortunately you've reached an age where they aren't likely salvageable. You can try massaging them and posting them, but at this point the cartilage is most likely already hardened. Crops are usually recommended at the 10 WEEK mark to give the ear time to heal before the cartilage solidifies. If your vet was willing to crop at 7 months, you should probably look for a new vet as it is unethical to crop a 7 month old dog without medical reasons.

No, most likely you are stuck with a flat eared crop. For future dogs, post straight away and have them cropped at 10-12 weeks old.

I am still wondering why people insist on cropping ears. Is there really medical reasons for it? Or is it because people feel that they have to in order to have a "pit bull" big mean dog look? Are you in dog shows of some kind? As a Staff terrier of one ilk?
