Question About Brushing Or Cutting Fur Of Australian Shepherd Rescue
We rescued an Aussie last year. When we got him his coat had been shaved down. Everything I read says he’s gonna be messed up from now on. His coat has grown in thick and if I brush him every other night with a FURminator I get a couple hand fulls of fur.
I live in the desert and the temperatures inside the house will be in the low 80’s. He pants regularly when it gets above 85.
Is there anything I can do to help his coat or do I keep on with the puppy cuts so he’ll be comfortable this summer. He’s never left in the heat or sunlight. FYI.
