The rough coat Brussels Griffons don't shed. Of course poodles, schnauzers, havanese, yorkies. There are several low/non shedding small breeds. What kind of dogs do you like? Best to look at your lifestyle and then narrow down your options from there..

poodles do not shed!

remember though, if you want a dog that does not shed you have to be willing to spend money on grooming unless you learn how to do it yourself!

I want a calm relaxed dog. Our neighbor got a toy poodle from a breeder and she is the calmest thing in the world. she sleeps all day which i thought weird. She also hates wet grass.

Breeds that are low/non shedders include poodles, airdales, Affenpinscher, Italian Greyhounds, etc. Like Dr2Little said, how can we help you find a breed and what other preferences do you have for a dog?


Edit- size, space needs, affection level, etc.?

that might be caused by living in a kennel at the breeders since she was "born". I don't know.

It can also be due to training and proper excercise. My boys sleep all day too but then all their excercise requirements are met so when they are home they WANT to sleep lol They have also been trained to be calm and quiet inside (plus it helps that it is in a HUskies nature too).

Shih Tzu and Lhasa Apso and Bichon Frise and I believe the Lowchen dont shed. As well as the affenpinscher, american hairless terrier, cesky terrier, chinese crested, coton de tuleur, glen of imaal, havanese, italian greyhound, maltese, manchester terrier, norfolk and norwich terrier, peruvian inca orchid, petit basset griffon vendeen, scottish terrier, sealyham terrier, westies, xolos, and yorkies. There are many others but these are the small breeds.

Yorkies don't shed. Of course, if you brush them, some hair will come out, but that happens when you brush me too.
