  1. You know very little about dogs that don’t shed! For instance, yorkies and poodles (the only one you g o t right) don’t shed because their hair grows like human hair. Humans don’t shed their hair either. It j u st grows and grows. So do these two breeds. Dachshnds and Boston terrier do shed, just because they have short fur does not mean they don’t shed. Get it right or go home!
