Hi all I have an almost yr old chihuahua.My question is when I give her a bath she is shedding really bad.IN HER bed it is full of hair. does anyone elses shed this bad.she is short hair.black too.Anything I could use or is she shedding her coat for summer.thanks
my dog has short black hair and everytime i pick him up with a white shirt on a get coverd in it. i tried using a shedding brush that i could take all the loose hair out at once but it doesnt always work. unless its not like loosing all of its hair im sure its pretty normal..
I used to have a rat terrier, he was black brown and white and he would shed like crazy. I could have sworn he would have ended up bald by the age of 8 months lol. Hed always leave my bath tub full of fur too after a bath. I just kept a lint roller around and a vacuum that is good for picking up pet hair.
mshazeleyez - Are you sure you have a Chihuahua? They do shed. It's natural for them to shed, they don't have the type of hair that a dog such as a poodle, bichon, shih tzu or yorkie has. The Chihuahua's hair does fall out a couple of times a year, to make room for a new crop of hair. If your Chihuahua doesn't shed, I would say it is a mix.
How old is your Chihuahua, mshazeleyez? How many years have you had the dog? I've never heard of a Chihuahua that doesn't shed.
