So my little Molly appears to have hair on her head and a wire coat on her body. I am so confused. I thought when I was getting her I was getting a dog with hair, no shedding variety. I found out she had a rough, wire coat so I read about grooming it and the coat stripping involved. Has anyone ever heard of a dog with different coats on parts of their bodies?

Sounds like my Sophie, actually. Really soft hair on her head, super wiry (and kind of thin!) body hair.

I'll admit, though, I'm a little lazy. I comb Sophie's hair but I don't strip it or anything. For one thing, it's a bit thin anyway, and for another - as long as she's not getting matts or anything she's fine in my book.

I remember when she went from her really strange puppy hair to her adult coat, she would get matts like crazy. I had to pull those out, which was time consuming. After that, her coat became very low maintenance - it even dries quickly.

I do trim the hair on her head, partially so it doesn't get into her eyes, and also because it can get really long and kind of funky looking.
