Hey folks! We're new the southwest region of the US... Las Vegas to be exact and we have a black pom-a-poo. She favors her pom genetics though. She is about 16 pounds ( we think she may have been mixed with a minature poodle instead of a toy poodle) with beautiful long black hair. Since the temperatures reach a scorching 120 during the summer months we are considering having Maya's hair cut. I DO NOT like the idea of shaving her. So a lion cut is out of the question. Is there any other cut we should consider. We were thinking of a puppy cut. We keep her well groomed, but we want her to be comfortable this summer. Thanks for all your help. Also if you would happen to have a picture demonstrating the cut you are suggesting I would greatly appreciate it. (I'd like to get an idea of how it would look on our dog) And if anybody is from Las Vegas I'd like to hear from you too... we're always looking for new dog friends. Thanks again!!
