How to get paint out of dogs hair

This may sound like a strange one but we were decorating at the weekend and our shih Tzu walked into some wet paint that was on the walls he now has a nice streak of red and white in his ear fur

as pretty as it looks will these easily wash out with regular doggy shampoo?

If its water-base paint, like acrylic, water and maybe mild soap should do the trick.

If its oil-based, try olive oil, Dawn, and/or baking soda and lemon juice.

I would just trim out the fur with paint on it. The hair will grow back. Just be careful not to cut the skin!

I've had a few paint/fur mishaps and I agree, trimming it out is the easiest solution.

Skin so soft by avon if its oil based soap and warm water if it is latex

Use to remove paint from the hands. (Instead of turpentine).

I agree to trim it out if you can. Dried wall paint is really hard to get out without some kind of paint thinning chemical. Most of the stuff that will get it out is NOT stuff you want to put on an animal.

Rosie got some paint on her when I repainted my room. It was so little and just on the surface of the fur so I left it. It went away on it's own after a couple weeks. Tigger got a purple tail tip too for a while when we were in Utah and our landlords were painting a dresser lol.
