Teddy has had a long journey to his current stylish self. Teddy was rescued from the humane society in the Detroit area. I saw his picture on-line at the Happy Homes Rescue and brought him home on 8/22/09. The Vet said he was about a year and 1/2 old ….so he is about 5 now. He was thin and shy but just as adorable as can be.
They had given him a very short haircut at the shelter to remove all the matting and it was difficult to know how his hair should be cut. Once it grew out he got a haircut at Petsmart.
It made him look like a poodle. People always asked what kind of dog is he? The vet said he seemed like a terrier mix. He was a very cute little guy and a few different groomers had a go at it.
But people kept asking what kind of dog he was….so a DNA test was done and it turns out he is a miniature schnauzer. He didn’t have his tail cropped when he was a puppy like they usually do with that breed, and his color is not unheard of but not the typical color you think of with a schnauzer so we were all fooled into thinking he was a terrier mix.
After The breed was Identified it became a matter of finding a groomer who could actually do a decent schnauzer cut.
After a few misses a great groomer was found!….and Teddy loved her…he looked forward to going to visit Michelle ….sadly Michelle had to give up grooming because of family needs and it was time to find someone else who would do a good job.
Not an easy task! I would not recommend petsmart or petco….they were reallllly bad. He had an appointment today with a new groomer. You gotta love the name “The Elegant Pooch”. Julie did a great job! he’s got some problem areas that will need to grow out yet from the previous disaster cuts…his eyebrows should be longer but the last groomer cut a huge chunk out of one of them ….but he looks like he should now.
Remember the picture of Teddy the other day in front of the pansy applique quilt?
He was looking pretty scruffy….here is is today
Happy to be looking sharp for his fans.
