5 Small and Short Hair Dogs

February 19, 2019

Not everyone has time to manage and groom dogs that have long, curly, and fancy hairstyles, so to speak! That’s why so many owners opt to buy short hair dogs that have more of a “get up and go” style. We kid around a bit, but you get our point. For those of you who want low maintenance short hair dogs, we’ve got the perfect post for you. Continue reading to learn more!
