New Fad Makes Groomed Dogs Look like Cubes

An idea that spawned three years ago at a Japanese dog grooming show of cutting a toy dogs hair into geometric shapes has since spread to Taiwan via social media. Younger viewers may recognize this as a shout-out to the popular PC game Minecraft.

The victims are usually poodles, and their hair shape is cut to make them look like perfect circles or cubes.

The style is high maintenance and isn’t viable for some breeds depending on hair type. Time will only tell if it spreads to other distant shores.
