|There are two very good breeders who agree with you, Gingery and Victory. They show their puffs with full facial hair, and if you buy a dog from them, it's part of the contract that you can't shave the face.
Most good breeders disagree, and the ONLY full-face puffs you'll see in the show ring are Gingery and Victory dogs. But shaving the face is not actually required by the standard; it's just the prevailing preference for grooming puffs.
If you want to show your dog and the kennel name isn't Gingery or Victory, you're much better advised to keep the face shaved until you're ready to retire the dog. If you're not showing the dog, there's absolutely no reason why you shouldn't indulge your own preference and leave your puff's face full and unshaved.
