Which dogs have hair instead of fur?

Answer

There are many breeds of dogs with coats made of hair rather than fur: poodles, shih-tzus and terriers are among the most popular varieties. Dogs with hair coats are often referred to as hypoallergenic, meaning that they produce smaller amounts of dander than other species of dogs.

Poodles are among the most popular and well-known kinds of hypoallergenic dogs, but the options available for aspiring dog owners include many other species too, including designer breeds like Labradoodles.

Standard poodles are often the first dogs to come to mind when envisioning breeds with hair coats. Poodles come in three sizes: toy, miniature and standard. Poodles, regardless of size, require plenty of exercise, and should be groomed every one to two months to keep their coats tangle-free and clean.

Shih-tzus are other popular dogs with hair coats: these dogs are small and friendly, but require coat clipping and regular maintenance such as brushing and bathing to keep their coats looking sharp.

Yorkshire terriers also have hair coats, and like other breeds, shed very few hairs. They lack undercoats, but their coat hairs require regular trims to maintain adequate health.

Maltese dogs have hair instead of fur, and lack undercoats, which minimizes their shedding volume.
