How long ago did you shave your dog? If it's only been a few weeks this is normal. I have 4 Bichon Frise dogs and when I shave them it can take up to 4 months before their hair grows back.

The dog's hair will grow back, but it might take a few months. My female Bichon's hair takes longer to grow than the males. His hair grows rather fast and is very thick. Just give it time. It is hard to see the hair growth when you are with the dog daily.

Pomeranians should not be shaved. If the inner layer was cut into, the hair should grow back. If it was cut into, the hair may grow back coarse, or not at all. You may have legal recourse against the groomer, if you choose to go that route.

Pom's should not be shaved and your groomer should have informed you of the problems with cutting his fur too short. it is possible that it may never look like it did in the past but it will take a long time to regrow to any length.

This was a gross negligence on your groomer's part as this is common knowledge with experienced/professional groomers.

All you can do now is take good care of him as his fur slowly grows and hope for the best.
Here is a link that might help with daily care.

Generally it won't grow back like it was.. It will come back in patches. Here is a success story of someone's whose hair did grow back. Good luck!

Try sulfer and lard on the spot where the hair is not growing,this works for mange.

aside from the obvious (visit the vet) then I would say that some dog breeds (such as Poms) do have tendency towards an alopecia condition that is harmless though not particularly beauteous.

some vets and others advocate supplementing his diet with omega 3, specifically fish oils. Some ppl have reported the hair growing back after that

i want to amend that i did not know that the breed itself would be harmed by shaving, though certain of these dogs DO get Alopecia X or Black Skin Disease (and I found out bc our neighbor's dog has this and I saw it firsthand so looked it up bc i found it interesting)

.. and that condition CAN be cured by fish oil, it sounds like what's happening here is different and caused by the groomer.
