I had a Bedlington Terrier for 15 years. They don't shed, although they are a little bigger than the toy breeds.

I will repeat someone above: Most non-shedding breeds require a lot of grooming. All those hairs that aren't falling out are getting caught up in the coat and produce mats. Medley went to the professional groomers for clipping every 6 - 8 weeks, and needed brushing every other day or so. Although I loved not having hair everywhere, I will never own another dog that needs professional grooming/clipping.

I have 2 toy poodles and neither one sleeps all day, lol.

I guess if they were never let out of their crate they would no other choice... but like ALL dogs they need exercise and want to play ALOT like normal puppies.

This poodle is a year old and sleeps all day. It's weird to me. i thought most small dogs were active. not her.

anyway, my mother said she wants to eventualy get a maltese. she saw one a breeder had that lived near us.

Question

What about a Spoodle (cockapoo)? I know that is probably what we are getting due to the fact of my moms allergies!

havanese dont shed and dont require any grooming besides brushing adn they tend to be low energy.

I'll tell my mom about a havanese then. She'll like the fact that they are low energy.

The maltese is a no shed breed but does require regular brushing they are often kept in a puppy cut to make the grooming easier. I am owned by 2 of them. They don't require a lot of room for excercise. Mine love to fetch their ball and after a few runs their done for the evening. I am retired and home most of the time and both of mine sleep alot in the daytime my Macy is 3 1/2 yrs old and my Jazzy is 5 months old. They like to play outside but are definately house dogs.

i think the manchester terrier sheds. only the toy manchester is non shedding. they also dont require a lot of grooming (there is really not a whole lot of hair left to groom lol), same with italian greyhound and american hairless.

baily is a maltese and i havent found a single hair of him, ever. his fur matts easily though and the grooming can be a PITA at times.....but i really enjoy not finding hair everywhere (except for my own...)
