Below are a few examples of puppies before and after being shaved. You will see one
photo with a puppy that has not been shaved; the photo directly under is the exact
same puppy after being shaved. You can see that it looks like a totally different
puppy. On close up photos, the shaved puppies also look bigger on the photo. I have
posted these photos so that you can see what you might expect. I know that when a
puppy is 4 week sold, there is not much to see, which makes it difficult to decide.
But it is impossible for me to keep all the puppies in full faces until they are
ready to go home. It's much too difficult to keep them clean. When puppies are weaning,
they literally bathe in their food until they learn how to eat. It gets very messy.
They need to be kept in a fashion that makes frequent clean ups easy and quick. This
provides you with the healthiest puppy that I can give you. Also, many lighter coloured
puppies tear. Keeping the eyes clean and free of hair helps to keep those unsightly
tear stains at bay.
It is also impossible for me to do two sets of photos, one set of the puppies with
the Teddy Bear look and one set with the clean shaven look. Not only is that time
consuming, but as well, those who like the clean shaven look cannot choose their
puppy as long as it is in full face. So the moral of that story is, I have no problem
leaving your puppy in a Teddy Bear clip, provided you choose your puppy and send
the deposit by 4 weeks old. As you can see by the photos, they are adorable, it's
a matter of what you like personally.
If you would like your puppy sent home Teddy Bear Style (full face and feet), you
must choose your puppy and send in your deposit by the time the puppy is 4 weeks
