What Kind of Dog is Boo?

From the time his videos were watched on YouTube, people started asking about the breed of this very cute puppy. Well, Boo is a Pomeranian with an extreme and unique hairstyle!

His owner and groomer definitely had taste, but I wonder if Boo's 'do counts as cruelty to an animal. What do you think? You may want to read about the Pomeranian breed a little more to understand them. Anyway, they are one of the cutest dog breeds and make nice videos and photos whether you trim their coat or not.

Would You Do it?

If you have a Pomeranian, would you give it an extreme hairstyle like Boo?

I've been reading up on these comments on how it's cruel to give a Pomeranian a haircut like this. It's almost IMPOSSIBLE to find out WHY people think this. Eventually most of those comments trace back to England, specifically to the Royal Dog Society or whatever they call themselves, and the associated Pomeranian Society. Even THEY won't tell you why they claim it's cruel. I've concluded that these are the upper crust who enter their dogs in shows, and a short haircut on a Pom will get them low scores. In order to keep the public perception that long-haired Poms are what is PERFECT, they want to blast anything else. They REALLY resent the public falling in love with a Pom that doesn't meet their standard of excellence. Of hundreds and hundreds of postings I only found ONE post that cited something that sounds rational, and I have no idea where it's factual or not. That person claimed that Pomeranians don't have the extent of natural resistance to skin diseases that short-haired dogs do, and depend on a thick coat to protect them from skin disease...therefore to cut off their natural 'protection' is high risk and therefore cruel. I don't know---a vet should be able to tell us whether that is hogwash or not. Are there differences in dogs' natural resistance to infection, tied to the thickness of their coat?

Rippy, I was thinking the same thing (how is the hairstyle this dog has cruel). Some haircuts can be cruel for certain animals. I don't see this one as such in any way. The only way I can see it as "cruel" is if a cut requires high maintenance and the dog hates being groomed, shakes, etc. Then it's cruel and selfish. But, some dogs love being groomed. It's all relevant. This dog looks pretty cute and happy to me :)

There's so much REAL animal cruelty going on in the world, people need to focus on that instead. Boo looks pretty friggin happy, I would not worry about his hairstyle. =__=

I think Boo is very cute! It makes me want to get my party Pom a hair cut like this. The hair cut is a great idea because it is easier to take care of and the dog seems to be happy . It is bad when there hair gets in tangles and they get upset when u have to brush it or cut it out.

JKM says "Anna, it's IMPOSSIBLE for a pomeranian and a chow to breed."

You know not from what you speak. What makes you think it is impossible? I have a 4 year old chowpom who is the cutest pup ever. And she has been bred once - successfully I might add - bearing 3 pups.

What is this bs about giving the dog a haircut as a sign of cruelty? Are those people mad? It's not like the dog it's gonna go into the mirror and look at himself and go :"Damn, what the hell happened to my fur?"They don't care, better yet it keeps them cooler in the summer.

I LOVE BOO SO MUCH HE IS SO CUTE!!!! But it kind of lowers the other dogs' self-esteems because they are not the cutest dog in the world. I do though think Boo is the cutest pomeranian but its not fair so say he's the cutest dog in the world. I love my dogs and they are both so adorable!!! And I don't think its cruelty to cut a dog's fur like that .... its the same as humans getting a haircut... its not animal cruelty PEOPLE its making your dog look FABULOUS!!!!

I think Boo is so cute! I am fixin to purchase a pom, I have wanted one for so long, but I am so OCD and was worried about the shedding. My daughter, danielle showed me pic of Boo, I made my mind up immediately. I am so gonna have it's fur cut in the Teddy Bear cut or the Lion Cut, which is long around the face, body cut short like Boo and a long tail, besides Boo's cut the Lion cut is the cutesy and so easy to maintain. My breeder informed me that if you want a dog that does not shed as much she breeds Yorkies and Poms, called Yorkiepom I can't wait to see one. She has been breeding these two dogs for 18 years and says they are very popular. As far as Boo, I think he is definitely the cutesy dog I have ever seen!!! Congrats to the breeder and the owner, kudos to you both!!!! Love it!!!

I really want a dog like Boo. I have his book and I just love him. I just want to know how much a pom costs in a regular pet shop and how much his hair cut would cost in like a porfessional grooming salon, and what it would cost in like a regular pet store please! I just want a dog.

uhhh 5 years ago

How is getting a dog groomed animal cruelty? Boo's haircut is not 'extreme'..it's a very typical hairstyle for Pom's called a Teddy Bear cut. Because Boo's undercoat is so full he ends up looking super fluffy.

jkm 5 years ago

Anna, it's IMPOSSIBLE for a pomeranian and a chow to breed. you have no clue about the pomeranian or their hair. the pom is a double coated dog, and if you have them groomed professionally on a regular basis their hair can get massively thick, all this cut is, is a lion cut w/out the body being completely shaved short. it's cut short enough and groomed enough that the hair puffs out. just as you'd see with another poofy breed (the bichon frise- which look like cotton balls when show groomed). i breed poms.
