Do all Short Haired dogs shed?



I might be having a dog but in a maybe long or short while. Still I would like to ask if all the short haired dogs shed? I have heard that Jack Russell shed that's the breed I would like. Someone told me that all short haired dogs shed. Is this true? Do you know any short haired breeds that don't Shed? If so tell me please.

Bye hope you can help

P.S the breed HAS HAS HAS to be small. Max. 40 cm in height

Well yes JRTs do shed but not so much if you brush once a week and feed them right.

I don't know if all short haired breeds shed, perhaps someone else here knows.

What about a toy or mini Poodle?? They don't shed at all! A Maltese maybe?

What do you expect from your dog? What do you want his/her temperament to be?

som' wire haired breeds need their coats hand stripped, so you would not have hair all over the place, just a few times a year at the groomers....but yes JRT do shed.

oi! If it's your first dog I would stay far far away from a Jack Russel-they are VERY high energy dogs-I would not recommend them to anyone short of a professional.

All dogs shed unless they are 'haired dogs' like poodles (where the hair continously grows like your hair-they need hair cuts but hardly shed) or hairless dogs.

All dogs with fur-whether short or long-shed

According to this article I just read, "unfortunately there is no such thing as dogs that don't shed at least a small amount of hair. "

But the good news is "there are plenty of great dog breeds (big & small) who shed very little hair."

Look at the recommendation below, hope it helps you

May I ask, if you don't mind, what activities you have in mind to do with your dog so maybe we can help you a little more?

High energy + non-shed = Standard Poodle or if you want a smaller dog a mini-Poodle. You will be surprised of their energy, intelligence and most of all of their ability to "retrain" them....I mean that if you don't do all things right from the start (a new owner is very easy to do that) you can so easily "correct" them later with these dogs.

What about breeds that shed but not much??
