  • My Attempt at a German Clip

    What do you do when you walk into the shelter and see a dirty little Poodle? Make him extra manly!

    When I first saw Tiny, his ears were long, and his body short. Someone left a ton of hair in the middle of his topknot; even though you can't really see it in the before pic, the comb tells all. His undocked tail had a little curl to it, making a really nice pom impossible. It was that last attribute that convinced me to try a German clip.

    At first I was worried that it wouldn't look right, on account of his body being so short, but a few clipper strokes later, I knew I made a good decision. He was the talk of the kennel. I think his Bichon buddy was a little envious

          He's a stud muffin fer sure!!

          It's telling of how much pride you take in your work, the fact that you were nervous about how a shelter dog would turn out. Usually "clean and short" is the fashion for the poor pound puppies.

          Nice grooming!

            He looks great

            You left enough fur for his poodle feet to show a different length. He doesn't look scalped. He also looks happy.

                Thanks everyone!

                Shelia, the way I see it, the cuter the haircut, the faster he goes home. Plus it's great practice for the shop dogs.

                Jen, I just scissored up his body. Whoever groomed him last must've done it in a hurry. He had "sticky-ouuties" all over the place.

                The shelter opens up for adoptions again tomorrow - everyone keep your fingers crossed for him and his Bichon buddy!

                  Very nice! Suits him well. Why would such a cute ,and sweet little fella end up in a shelter?
