    I need some help with affie hc.The few I've done have been a tidy ups.She's a badly bred affie with a long silky coat.They want her shorten up but still wants her to look like a affie.I know the breeders and they have quite a few breeds but thier affies and yorkies are awful they have some very nice border terriers tho.Any suggestions on the hc appreciated

    They are supposed to have a "monkey" face. The hair should be sticking up and out, so it resembles a monkey. It's pretty much the same cut as a Griffon, but the short back starts at the base of the skull right at the bump instead of at the neck.. Their hair shouldn't lay as smooth as the Griffon, it should be a little staticy looking. That's the best way I can describe it. The dog should look like it had it's tail stuck in a power socket. The hair on the back is also longer. I'm not talking about the Griffon with no head hair and only beard.

    I think I explained that right, I'm not sure...
