Meet Dec and Ant, 6 month old male Shih Tzu pups that came into us in a dreadful state. After a serious amount of clipping and combing Dec has been transformed into a beautiful little fella unrecognizable from the pup that came into us. Yesterday Dec was very unsure of his surroundings and a little bit frightened and growly. Today he's as happy as can be probably due to the fact that he can now see! It's so important to keep these non-shed breeds well groomed and happy.
