I wasn't being sarcastic. I've never had a cropped dog as it's illegal in my country but every post I've seen about cropping mentions that they tape the ears so that they stand (unless it's a very short crop). The dog in the pics doesn't even look like it's been cropped.

Yes, they do tape them unless it is a short crop. Where did you get this done because it doesn't really look like the dog has been cropped, in my opinion. I always crop and never had any look like that afterward.

Then he should have taped them up for you, especially with ears that long. He honestly doesn't look like he has even been cropped. If you search ear crops on here you will see hundreds of pictures of dogs that have just been cropped.

White Dog's ears weren't taped, but that is because he has a short, short crop. The longer the crop then they need to be taped. You can have the ears re cropped; however, I'd suggest using a different vet.

so are you saying that the ears will never stand even if i tape them, i can see in the back of the ears where the cartilage has already began to harden
