I took this a couple days ago, lighting wasn't the best, I woke him up out of a deep nap to take this picture.

you can see the color of his skin here, vet shaved all but his chest/head portion. Funny thing is they shaved his hind legs, but left the front intact from the knees down. Reminds me of that commercial of the car guy getting a hair cut and the gal throws the clippers down and walks out.

lol I guess I've never seen a picture of Smokey because I've always thought he was a dark color given his name. I do remember seeing Taffy and Licorice though.

Was he shaved down for comfort or did he have a skin condition along with the ear infections?

He was matted, so it was easier for them to just shave him, he seems to like it, although with not much of a coat he likes to snuggle on the couch. Oh, yes he does have skin issues, needs a bath, if knuckle head would let somebody give him one, he'd feel so much better - vet didn't find any fleas, so it's not a flea issue. I've got pictures in my mind of giving him a bath, wasn't it the movie Hooch, that the guy drives the dog through a car wash with the top down.

But he's a devil in disguise like the saying goes.

A has a dog visiting for a short time, and she's all grown out and scruffy which exposes some pretty cool markings you never see when she's groomed (Cresteds do this stuff backwards) you can see where she has white markings that are larger than the pink-skinned areas:
