I actually requested they trim an inch off her coat and they shaved her down to the bare skin. When I went to pick up my Eskie, the owner Joyce stated she tried to use a 5 blade (in lieu of scissors) and kept getting streaks. The owner of Animal Palace had the nerve to say she thought it looked better with a lion cut. She should never have made that decision without contacting me. I am in complete shock and disappointment. How long will it take to grow back? Also, will it grow back as beautiful as it was? She is only 2 years old and I am so sad.... Please let me know.. Thanks.
