Huskies are notorious for shedding, and maintaining their coats is a definite labor of love.
One husky mom took her dog to the groomer for a little assistance and came back to find that excessive shedding definitely wasn't going to be a problem for a while.
They had been shaved.
Shaving a husky generally isn't a good idea (unless advised by a veterinarian). Their double coat helps them regulate their body temperatures in both hot and cold weather.
They also look a bit ridiculous without their fur.
@hannahgomez44 shared photos of her poor pup on Twitter, where they garnered a lot of attention.
She said she told the groomer "he's [sic] needs to be shaved just ENOUGH so he wouldn't shed as much anymore."
@hannahgomez44 was quick to say that the cut wasn't what she intended, but didn't understand how the groomer thought she meant to shave him.
As several people pointed out, there isn't much more you can do with a husky's fur besides brush it or shave it off.
A few people cautioned against sunburn while the poor pupper is shaved.
People also started sharing their doggos' disastrous 'dos.
Cat companions got in on the action too.
The poor pup seems to be doing okay, he's just dealing with a bit of extra ennui.
If you take your dog to a new groomer, make sure you discuss exactly what you want them to do for your pet. And ask if that is something they would recommend for the animal.
Many groomers will caution you against cuts that aren't a good idea, but it's always better to be safe than sorry.
