    For a minute there I thought you were asking Pet Smart how much for a pug with a view to buying one from them! I think, having read your post again, that you were actually asking them about grooming costs. Phew!

    I don't know from personal experience if blacks shed but I am pretty sure they do. Maybe not quite as much as the fawns, though, as many fawns are double coated, which blacks are not.

    petsmart doesn't sell animals. black pugs do definitely shed. i find my fawns shed more, but i also have black pug hair all over my house.

    Mugzy (my black male) sheds just like Maizee (my fawn female). But yes, Maizee does shed more.

    When I wear a light color, I see Mugzy all over me. When I wear dark, I see Maizee!

    Black pugs do definitely shed. I don't tend to notice Huckstable's fur (black pug) on my clothes, but he sleeps with us, and my sheets are completely covered in black fur every week. I do notice Daisy's fur (fawn pug) on my clothes - I'm not sure what the difference is . . .

    Huckstable has a very soft, fine coat, while Daisy's is more coarse, but both shed.

    Black pugs tend to be more single-coated then fawns (at least in my experience).

    I have 2 single-coated pugs and they shed a lot less than the double-coated ones.

    But they shed.

    They are also VERY soft...

    I do think this is the reason. Blacks are more likely to be single coated. Ozzy is a single-coated black and he sheds like CRAZY. We have to empty Patrick the roomba halfway through a room he sucks up so much Ozzy hair. But he still doesn't shed as much as my former roommate's double-coated fawn. It's a different kind of hair too. Ozzy's hair is coarse and long, while Winston's was very fine (and clung to you in clumps).

    I have noticed this too!!! Maybe I just own a lot more black clothes..hah. Hooligan (the fawn) definately seems to shed a lot more though.

    Freddy Jones is single-coated and sheds less.
    Toby Jones is double-coated and sheds A TON!!! But he's much softer than Freddy Jones whose coat is very coarse.
