now i know its summer and dogs shed but sheese is rod ever a mess.

i was brushing him last night before bed and i was out side for over a half hr brushing hime. i use the red rubber curry brush. the fur just kept on coming off. it was insane. i could have gone all night just brushing.

may be i need to brush him everyday because he sheds so much in my house. my furniture and my couch have an irredescent orange glow.

i have no helpful information on this, however a stupid story.

years ago my ex-bfu and i were looking to adopt a dog from rescue. (we got a great girl that he now has and i have Phoebe)

we were laughing at the stupid questions on the application that are used to screen out the "undesireables". the lady was telling us some of the stories of stupid people wanting to adopt dogs.

for example: a few people have requested specific colors of dogs, just so they would match their furniture and carpet. these people didn't really care what breed, as long as they matched their interior decorating scheme.

my advice to those people? get fish

my house is covered in white and black dog hair and i wouldn't have it any other way lol

Give him a bath, it will get most of it out all at once.

Give him a good brushing, then give him a bath. The first brushing will get all the hair that's just lying around, the bath with get a lot of the hair underneath.

Once he dries, brush him again.

I brush my dogs twice a day and they're still shedding freaks.

Before I got my first Pit, I did a lot of research about the breed. I've read that they were "light" shedders--that was a big lie!

It's very amusing how people assume that long haired dogs shed alot and short hairs don't. It's the exact opposite, short hairs shed hair 24/7 and long hairs blow their coat twice a year. Or are suppose to anyway.

So many people think Pugs are adorable goof balls, very true, they are, however, double coated and shed like fiends. Goliath sheds more hair in a day than any 7 dogs I know. Black pugs aren't double coated so they are much easier to deal with...........till you get to the sking problems.

Brush more regularly, before you bathe brush him and after he's dry brush again. Makes a huge difference.

i musta gotten a weirdo freak dog. she doesn't shed much at all. a little bit, but certainly not enough to leave a red sheen anywhere, not even on the blanket in her crate.

Me too elegy. Casey doesn't shed seemingly at all, although I know he does. I don't see his hairs anytime unless I'm wearing those kind of pants(usually BLACK pants) that attract BROWN dog hair(and cat hair, I have WHITE a long-haired cat :roll: )
