Shedding
About breeds that shed
All dogs shed their hair, but some breeds shed their coat less than others. This is something to consider if you have dog allergies, live with someone who does, or don't want to deal with large amounts of dog hair. If you do have an allergy, you should consult a medical professional before getting a dog.
