Poor dude got one hell of a haircut.

Shibas are so cute, especially in combination with the adorable head tilt.

    Oh nooooooo!
    He looks so skinny. Hehe. Actually, it’s a little hard to tell — was he really shaven, or was he just brushed a LOT so he has no more undercoat?

    People in Taiwan shave dogs of all breeds, and it was not uncommon to see Shibas shaved down to bare-nekkid skin. Unfortunately, it’s really not recommended for double-coated breeds. I’ve got pictures of shaved cats somewhere on a hard drive, too…

    I’m not 100% sure, but I do think I recall that he was shaved, not just well-brushed.

    And yeah… double-coated breeds can end up with patchy coats if you buzz them down. Looks really goofy, and often quite sad. I seem to recall I posted one… hmm… yep, here.
