10 Dogs That Don’t Shed (Much)

Just because you love dogs doesn’t mean you love having their fur all over your house. After all, who wants to sit on a couch that’s more hair than cushion? Or be forced to run their vacuum on a daily (okay, weekly) basis? And if you have allergies, a dog that sheds a lot can leave you sneezing, wheezing, or even covered with a nasty rash — not fun.

Sin embargo, cosas como cojear o gañir cuando se haga presión sobre un área son señales claras
