This was quite a ruff cut.
A Florida woman’s trip to the pet groomer turned calamitous after her normally poufy pooch came back completely sans fluff. Photos of her mutt’s drastic makeover have since gone viral online.
Carley Coca from Tampa, Florida, took her 7-year-old Samoyed, Nanuk, to the groomer to have his feet and ears tidied up with a trim. However, the 28-year-old occupational-therapy student returned to find her plush pooch’s fur had been entirely sheared off.
“I literally said out loud, ‘That’s not my dog!’ ” Coca recalled of seeing Nanuk’s new ’do for the first time. She claims she even called up the groomer to make sure he was actually her dog. Indeed, the hairless canine more closely resembled a bull terrier than a Samoyed.
And the dog’s problems weren’t just aesthetic — the fur’s lengthy re-growth cycle left Nanuk exposed to the elements for a whole year. During that time, Coca had to slather sunscreen on her naked canine and dress him in a shirt to protect his skin from the heat and cold. She was relieved when her bald fur baby’s coat finally grew back completely.
Surprisingly, “Nanuk seemed to love the haircut,” says Coca, who was shocked that “he acted so proud. But he’d never looked like that before.”
Coca is also making the best of the situation, saying she “couldn’t stop laughing.” She adds that the groomer “was obviously so proud of his work, so I felt like I just had to smile and let it go.”
Despite taking Nanuk’s new look in stride, Coca and her husband now take him and their two other puppies to a different groomer to avoid another fashion faux paw.
Still, her doggo’s bad hair day doesn’t hold a candle to goldendoodle Lola’s visit to the fur-dresser, which left her looking like the Joker.
