I think he looks great either way!! I personally Hate a nonshaved face, so i could never do the "scruffy" look. Riley has been shaved down before. It is much easier to deal with, but i think his legs look too skinny. I havnt completely scalped him since he has had short ears, but here is a pic a couple summers ago. We went on vacation with him, and i knew we would be swimming alot. I got him shaved so he could dry faster (worked great!).
