Some people will tell you there are some ugly pups out there due to the hair styles they are sporting. It is all a matter of personal taste though so you don't limit yourself by what other people think.
You can look at pictures to decide with haircut for pup you want to try out. You aren't limited to the same one over and over again either. You can choose what is going to fit the personality of your pup.
Before you decide to cut a pup consider the environment they are in. Their hair doesn't keep them as warm as the hair on other breeds of dogs.
Therefore it wouldn't be very comfortable for them to be in a cold climate and to get all their hair shaved off. If you are worried about them being too cold with the type of hair style you give them make sure they have some warm clothing you can layer on them.
