What Kind of Dog is Boo?

From the time his videos were watched on YouTube, people started asking about the breed of this very cute puppy. Well, Boo is a Pomeranian with an extreme and unique hairstyle!

His owner and groomer definitely had taste, but I wonder if Boo's 'do counts as cruelty to an animal. What do you think? You may want to read about the Pomeranian breed a little more to understand them. Anyway, they are one of the cutest dog breeds and make nice videos and photos whether you trim their coat or not.

Would You Do it?

I Love Boo

Below are a couple of cute videos of the adorable Boo, the loveliest dog in the world. I wouldn't be surprised if this dog stars in some movies in the near future. Enjoy!

Soo cute

C318137 on May 23, 2013:

I've been reading up on these comments on how it's cruel to give a Pomeranian a haircut like this. It's almost IMPOSSIBLE to find out WHY people think this. Eventually most of those comments trace back to England, specifically to the Royal Dog Society or whatever they call themselves, and the associated Pomeranian Society. Even THEY won't tell you why they claim it's cruel. I've concluded that these are the upper crust who enter their dogs in shows, and a short haircut on a Pom will get them low scores. In order to keep the public perception that long-haired Poms are what is PERFECT, they want to blast anything else. They REALLY resent the public falling in love with a Pom that doesn't meet their standard of excellence. Of hundreds and hundreds of postings I only found ONE post that cited something that sounds rational, and I have no idea where it's factual or not. That person claimed that Pomeranians don't have the extent of natural resistance to skin diseases that short-haired dogs do, and depend on a thick coat to protect them from skin disease...therefore to cut off their natural 'protection' is high risk and therefore cruel. I don't know---a vet should be able to tell us whether that is hogwash or not. Are there differences in dogs' natural resistance to infection, tied to the thickness of their coat?

maria on May 12, 2013:

How much does she cost???

unknown on February 28, 2013:

this ain't cute. looks like an alien dog.

MysteryC on January 12, 2013:

Rippy, I was thinking the same thing (how is the hairstyle this dog has cruel). Some haircuts can be cruel for certain animals. I don't see this one as such in any way. The only way I can see it as "cruel" is if a cut requires high maintenance and the dog hates being groomed, shakes, etc. Then it's cruel and selfish. But, some dogs love being groomed. It's all relevant. This dog looks pretty cute and happy to me :)

Rippy Boopenstein on December 13, 2012:

How the hell is a haircut cruelty to animals????

There's so much REAL animal cruelty going on in the world, people need to focus on that instead. Boo looks pretty friggin happy, I would not worry about his hairstyle. =__=

ally on November 04, 2012:

Dana on May 09, 2012:

I think Boo is very cute! It makes me want to get my party Pom a hair cut like this. The hair cut is a great idea because it is easier to take care of and the dog seems to be happy . It is bad when there hair gets in tangles and they get upset when u have to brush it or cut it out.

K on May 02, 2012:

Boo is like the cutest how do you get your puppy that hair style!I am a huge animal lover!

mie on May 01, 2012:

boo is sooooooooooooooo cute I would trade him in for my dog Trixie she is a mix breed half bichon and a yorky we get her groomed she looks a lot better after words I would say boo is cuter than my dog trixie 1 is one and I am ten

tkh on April 12, 2012:

JKM says "Anna, it's IMPOSSIBLE for a pomeranian and a chow to breed."

You know not from what you speak. What makes you think it is impossible? I have a 4 year old chowpom who is the cutest pup ever. And she has been bred once - successfully I might add - bearing 3 pups.

ycydkvhjbnfjh on April 04, 2012:

Hes du-bomb

Argentina on April 01, 2012:

What is this bs about giving the dog a haircut as a sign of cruelty? Are those people mad? It's not like the dog it's gonna go into the mirror and look at himself and go :"Damn, what the hell happened to my fur?"They don't care, better yet it keeps them cooler in the summer.

sai swaroop on March 24, 2012:

its soooo cute and i like it very much ,, especially my mom love it

Jenny on March 21, 2012:

I luv him

Kim on March 21, 2012:

It is NOT cruel to have a Pomeranian's hair cut! I had a Pomeranian and I had it's hair cut every Summer, It was a lot cooler on him and his hair didn't mat up as much! My God there is nothing cruel about it!

Rachael on March 11, 2012:


Jennifer on March 01, 2012:

I LOVE BOO SO MUCH HE IS SO CUTE!!!! But it kind of lowers the other dogs' self-esteems because they are not the cutest dog in the world. I do though think Boo is the cutest pomeranian but its not fair so say he's the cutest dog in the world. I love my dogs and they are both so adorable!!! And I don't think its cruelty to cut a dog's fur like that .... its the same as humans getting a haircut... its not animal cruelty PEOPLE its making your dog look FABULOUS!!!!

estephani on February 21, 2012:

que lindo estan bello

Wampus Woozle on February 20, 2012:

Boo is the Cutest Dog in the world so why wouldn't you give your pom an extreme hairdo like boo's. That dog is loved by people all over the world and its not animal cruelty to amp up your baby dog! I have a pom puppy and for her first comes the booism. Love Roxy 2 death and will love her 10x more with her new hair! GO BOO!!!

Silver and Sarah on February 19, 2012:

I own a pom and i say its not cruel because if they were wild they would have to look for their food and water and they would soon die out.

Guest on February 19, 2012:

I think its very cruel to keep a dog as well as make it a hairstyle as dogs need to own their life too!

lily and liam on February 14, 2012:

maggie said she was cuter then any dog in the world

lily and liam on February 14, 2012:

mayra on January 28, 2012:

my dog is a pomoranian i love him go on youtube put in pomorainian breed and it is the first one

Shannon on January 28, 2012:

I think Boo is so cute! I am fixin to purchase a pom, I have wanted one for so long, but I am so OCD and was worried about the shedding. My daughter, danielle showed me pic of Boo, I made my mind up immediately. I am so gonna have it's fur cut in the Teddy Bear cut or the Lion Cut, which is long around the face, body cut short like Boo and a long tail, besides Boo's cut the Lion cut is the cutesy and so easy to maintain. My breeder informed me that if you want a dog that does not shed as much she breeds Yorkies and Poms, called Yorkiepom I can't wait to see one. She has been breeding these two dogs for 18 years and says they are very popular. As far as Boo, I think he is definitely the cutesy dog I have ever seen!!! Congrats to the breeder and the owner, kudos to you both!!!! Love it!!!

yuck on January 25, 2012:

wow this is called the cutest dog in the world...yuck....

emma on January 23, 2012:

matt on January 22, 2012:

lmfao, this dog is not even close to being cute, its actually pretty ugly.

fancy3566 on January 21, 2012:

I have the same dog and have him cut that way... and for anna that says its not a real POM, part chow... ... you are soooo wrong My scooby is 8 years old and weighs 7 pounds and they could be twins...

Anna 6 weeks ago

He is not a full bred pomeranian, he looks like a mix of chow chow judging by his paws and his body. SO CUTE NONETHELESS!

3m0k!d on January 12, 2012:

i would cut my pom's hair if it were in the summer and i wouldn't like matted fur if i was a dog.

Sue on January 06, 2012:

You are so cute my friends think your fake.

%!$^#%@ on January 06, 2012:

I thought it was ateddy bear

InduswebiTech from Rama Road, Kirti Nagar, New Delhi, India on January 06, 2012:

i think it's a breed of poodle and a pomerian....

Bob on January 03, 2012:

Boo is amazing my step dad has his book I love the one with the duck in the bathtub.

zack on December 31, 2011:

dot on December 28, 2011:

well he is cute but what's so cool? i mean don't get me wrong he's a cutie pie but i have seen millions of other dogs that are pretty cuter. i mean well other dogs are pretty cute too!! like cockappoo's (cocker spaniel and poodle) their adorable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hannah on December 24, 2011:

he's sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ADORABLE!!!

raina on December 23, 2011:

I really want a dog like Boo. I have his book and I just love him. I just want to know how much a pom costs in a regular pet shop and how much his hair cut would cost in like a porfessional grooming salon, and what it would cost in like a regular pet store please! I just want a dog.

uhhh on December 17, 2011:

How is getting a dog groomed animal cruelty? Boo's haircut is not 'extreme''s a very typical hairstyle for Pom's called a Teddy Bear cut. Because Boo's undercoat is so full he ends up looking super fluffy.

Ben on December 16, 2011:

don't you people think that it is creepy. give it a normal hair cut. that is just messed up

Alyssa on December 16, 2011:

SOoooooooooo cute

jkm on December 10, 2011:

Anna, it's IMPOSSIBLE for a pomeranian and a chow to breed. you have no clue about the pomeranian or their hair. the pom is a double coated dog, and if you have them groomed professionally on a regular basis their hair can get massively thick, all this cut is, is a lion cut w/out the body being completely shaved short. it's cut short enough and groomed enough that the hair puffs out. just as you'd see with another poofy breed (the bichon frise- which look like cotton balls when show groomed). i breed poms.

Aw on December 10, 2011:

He is the cutiest thing I have ever seen

Anna on December 10, 2011:

He is not a full bred pomeranian, he looks like a mix of chow chow judging by his paws and his body. SO CUTE NONETHELESS!
