    Too cute! How old? In that last pic his hair looks really silky! Are going to shave his face? I keep my girl's face and ears shaved, I tried to let her ear hair grow out over the winter, but I just couldn't stand it and ended up cutting it, maybe I'll try again next winter. I wish I could help on names, but nothing is coming to mind right off, he looks happy in his new home!

    So very cute! We had a lot come through my vet clinic when I worked there. Congrats!
    Oh, I'm no help with names, as mine are all very odd. [​IMG]

    He's a cutie for sure! I think he looks like a Louie, that's just what came to me.

    I LOVE it! I think they are so cute. My friend has two of them and they are the weirdest lookin things, but they are adorable. One of the "So ugly its cute" things I guess. [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone! He sure has adjusted well, at home. Still shy to strangers. He is 6 months old.

    I don't think I'll shave him--at least till he is all grown out. Do you think he'll grow more on his ears? Or anywhere? LOL I didn't realize you shaved the powderpuffs naked! (for show anyways!) Do you have problems with their teeth?

    The powderpuffs are not completely shaved for shows. They are usually just trimmed around their faces and feet to clean them up. The hairless (like you have) are usually shaved on the body, to remove stray hairs, and trimmed on the face and feet.

    Cute little guy. My friend makes custom coats and collars and donates the profits for charity. Here is her link if you need some clothes to help him to stay warm:
