We got a Shepherd Chow mix 2 weeks ago. Double coat. He is very sweet. But after only 2 weeks he was at the vet because of a hit spot that grew like a wildfire. We have a pond that he is just drawn to. The double coat is keeping his skin wet. The vet says my best option is to clip his beautiful long coat to be about an inch long - at least all Summer. This sweet boy was with his prior family over 5 years. So he is already depressed about the move. Will this be awful for him? He seems to have been through a lot in just 2 weeks already. I am really concerned that this sweet boy is in the wrong place. Any thoughts?
