What Dog Breeds Don’t Shed?

Cleaning dog hair everywhere in the house daily can be very exhausting, especially if you live in an apartment. Many people mistakenly think that a short-haired dog will leave less hair shedding on their favourite sofa than a long-haired one. However, some short hair breeds can be real hair factories. If you are looking for dogs that shed the least amount of hair here are the best possible breeds for you. 

The Dachshunds

Everyone knows this beautiful dog with a long body and short legs. It is chosen either as a pet or for the help it provides in hunting animals. It is small in size, ideal for small houses or apartments, and its pleasant character is perfect for homes with children.

Be careful; there are three types of hair in this breed: short, thick and long, the former is the most common and they are the ones that do not shed hair.
