There is nothing quite as beautiful as a pup with glorious white hair that is kept well-groomed. The only problem is when your pup has those nasty tear stains under his eyes. There are several reasons why these stains appear. It could be a health issue, nutritional issues, centuries of overbreeding, or his eyes being irritated by overgrown hair. Thankfully, there are several ways to remove these stains. It is important that you keep these stains cleaned up as if the hair stays moist, it can lead to a yeast infection that makes it worse
In reality, your pup probably couldn't care less what color the hair under his eyes is. But what he does care about is if this staining leads to any type of infection or damage to his vision. In most cases, tear stains can be easily removed, and their cause prevented.
For the most part, tear staining is just unsightly, but there is the risk of infection setting in if you don't keep the hair under your pup's eyes clean. It only takes a few minutes with readily available household products. You owe it to your four-legged friend to take care of this simple task on a regular basis.
When taken to be groomed he barks snarls till tongue turns purple. Therefore no groomer can finish grooming him. My daughter rescued him from California humane society. What can she do she has had him for a year
Thank you for the question about Ralphie. Have you discussed this with the vet? I would; there may be a reason for the aggression (such as arthritis). A check-up may reveal a problem. The vet can also recommend a groomer skilled in working with fearful and aggressive dogs. It may take several short visits to get Ralphie used to someone. Perhaps he had a bad experience years ago. He may be afraid of the clippers and scissors are needed instead. Good luck and I hope the vet visit goes well.
