I have two pug mixes, both fawn, a fawn pug and a black pug. My three fawns shed like mad. I mean, I eat hair, wear hair, sit on hair, sleep on hair, drink hair, etc.laugh out loud

But Sunny, my black pug, doesn't seem to shed at all. I never see black hair anywhere!

So I am wondering if that is possible?

I have heard that black pugs don't shed like fawns do but since both mine are fawn I really wouldn't know. I was told that the black pugs do not have the same heavy undercoat that the fawns do and that's why they shed less.

Hmmmm... makes sense. Sunny really doesn't shed. She also doesn't have the fluffy coat that Winnie has. So maybe that is it.
