    That's my question - when do they stop? I had just bought a fawn-colored sofa when I got Penny. I now have a black sofa.

    Default shedding

    Do they ever stop? My Pugs seem to shed all year. The Boston TERROR seldom sheds a hair. We bought our cars with interiors that will wear well with fawn hair and a new sofa where the hairs are less visible.

I miss you all so much, my little furry friends. You are living always in my heart and mind. Slumber on, girls. Now living with Ivy, a Boston Terrier, and Sassy, rescue Papillion/Doxie.

    Edie and Dolly are just about to turn 5 months old and my oh my has the shedding begun. We went from no hair to it being everywhere. We found it on our clothes, the couch, the kitchen hob, in our food!

    We have now started 'Operation Hairless' where we are trying to minimise how everywhere it is. We have removed pointless bits of furniture they used to climb all over and have invested in a Dyson (it sucked up enough hair to make a new pug!). We are also grooming them frequently and find those sticky rollers you can get for clothes so useful, not just for getting the hair off our clothes, but after grooming to run it over the pugs!

    We also try to shake off our clothes in the garden before washing them as stuff previously was coming out as hairy as it went in!

    We have a brown leather sofa, and luckily its easy to get all the pug hair off it, we keep one of those mini hoovers handy for it!

    I love the grooming tool that has the curved, serrated edge. That gets off handfuls of hair even if I've just used a different brush on Otto.

    It did take me a bit to get used to the look and feel of it, though. At first it looks like a medieval torture implement.

    Every now and then, I'll see a sentence in a dog book about how pugs are "short-haired dogs with minimal shedding". HA!!

    My girl is 13 month old and hasn't stopped. She goes through periods of heavy shedding and the rest of the time she just sheds a lot. So as far as I know the answer to your question is nope.

    Thats why you have to pick one color and stick with it. Then buy all furniture and clothing in that color. I'm gonna be in biiiiig trouble someday when I bring home a black pug aren't I?

    I was wondering this as well. Oscar's 6 1/2 months old. He doesn't shed hardly at all. The only time we saw massive amounts of hair was when he came home from staying with Snarfy and I'm pretty sure it's all Snarf's hair.

    I know that most people say black pugs shed just as much as fawn ones. But I have heard some people saying they don't shed as much. Oscar's parents were both black. I'm curious if he inherited a less-shedding coat even tho he's fawn.

    How do I know when he looses his puppy coat?

    And how often do your pugs "molt"? Like the seasonal excessive shedding thing?

    When do they start? Perhaps the magic moment is when their mother licks them dry after they are born. It's a pug thing.
