Did you know there are canines in Starfleet? Huskies tend to end up in lower deck engineering and sometimes stuff does get a bit awkward as … huskies. For the record about the short sleeves and the collar, In Starfleet they allow modifications of things like that if they are cultural and well given the fur. Given the shedding problems tend to have to make early trips into the sonic shower and some blowing to collect excess before going on duty. I can get written up for leaving tons of fur in the jefferies tubes. This is also what happens when said huskies get their hands on the turbo lift systems and add elevator music.
(For the record I’m a complete dork that wastes way too much time trying to screw with old media, forgive me)
