|And it's ridiculous to suggest they have the wrong dog. Because of the double coats, there may be risks with cutting a pom, but it's the owner's call. Pom coats aren't sacred. It's just fur.
It is not really ridiculous to suggest that. People that buy dogs with a lot of hair need to be aware of the upkeep that comes along with them. It is a responsiblity and if they can't seem to handle that, they need another dog.
Also, there are risks to cutting a poms coat and the owner decides to totally disregard that?!? That is mind blowing! It is a person's responsibility to research a breed (and well might I add) before adding them to their family.
It's not just fur, it is a protective coat, just as Bodhi & Bella said, it does serve a purpose. If you don't like the way a pom looks with it's standard coat....why shave it? Why not just get a chihuahua?
Mochi asked for assistance, wasn't answered quickly enough and did what she wanted anyways. Looking at her profile I'm not sure why she was cut in the first place, being as young as she is.
Not bullying, I know people come for advice so we don't want to scare them away. A lot of owners on here know what we are talking about so, so sometimes just waiting for a good answer is best :]
