Severely matted Maltese gets shave down

Big Admin October 25, 2017 29

This is what us groomers are forced to do, when there is no other humane option for grooming. Watch a severely matted Maltese get shaved down.

    I just did a Maltese today, that was not quite as bad, but close. Owner did not even know the breed he had! He called it a poodle. I scolded him severely, and he promised to keep up with the grooming.

    I had another abandoned Lhasa Apso that looked like your Maltese, even worse! Hair was 1 foot long and so matted, he had dreadlocks!!! The owners kept him outside 24/7. His butt had poop on it, and he smelled horrible. He was not fixed either. His natural urges brought him to my house, following my Mini Poodle, and a Maltipoo female I was fostering. Once he was in my yard, I spent 5 hrs shaving him down! Then a bath, did his ears, toes, the works. Then sent him off to Animal Control to be fixed and get his shots. I kept tabs on him as I was going to send him to a rescue, but he looked so good after my shave down, that he was adopted in 4 days. What a good feeling he now has a real home with people who love him. He is a beautiful dog.

    Thanks for letting me know about #7 blade. I wondered which blade to use for these bad situations. Nice demo, thanks!

    Why do you call that poor little dog, Animal! Why not clip her with scissors to get the initial hAir down. Where is your heart?!

    Why didn't you clip heR wet since she was obviously in pain? Please identify the dog as a dog, cat as a cat?

    To much of that blabber mouth talking and not seeing that poor dog taken care of. How can you let something with all those tattles on live TV. I wonder if she knows how crappy she looks?

    Most likely a lot of owners who bring in dogs don't have the money to get them sedated to remove the fur. Also for people who think," oh just use scissors to try and get most of it off!" It's not as easy as it looks. I've used almost every kind of scissors to get mats off and its of to no use… All it does is tug and pull at the dogs skin causing it pain. If an owner Doesn't have the money to get it sedated( along with all the monitors to make sure the dogs breathing and heart beat is normal) the best option is to get it off as quickly as possible!Given that you give the dogs enough breaks to recover from any pain it's going through. I think WAY before getting a dog you need to do research on a breed that best suits you. Fluffy dogs require regular grooming and if you don't like taking them to the groomers and paying.. It's best you get a dog with short hair and sheds.

    It looks like to me this dog was severely neglected. I have never seen a Maltese matted like this. I have had Maltese for 27 yrs. and groom myself now, since my last one was special needs and I could not send to groomer. I had to learn and I enjoy it.  People should not get a Maltese unless they are the love of their life and brush and groom them at least once a day. I bath according to coat. some are more oily than others just like people. I want to cut my boy short even though his coat is beautiful. My husband wants him to look like a boy. I have a boy and a girl now. They are from Taiwan with all granddad champs with AKC and Asian lines. They are so beautiful as all my Maltese have been. My pups look like the pups on Maltese Obsession but they are Korean pups.

    they dog should have been taken down with a 10 to avoid pulls like that with a 7 and she shouldn't have kept it in one piece like that should have used scissors to cut the huge blanket in half so as u go further down the back it pulls the belly matting

    Makes a change to see somebody who REALLY CARES.
    Would still be better to cut off hair before it becomes too heavy.
