Gross City Hair

Hello, fellow dog lovers! I have a Yorkie/Chihuahua mix and he never stays clean. He has white blonde hair and, after two days of long walks in the city, his fur is disgustingly black at places.

I've been told that giving him too many baths can irritate his skin, but what can I do about this problem? He's really a cutie underneath all that grime :/

Thank you!

As long as you use a good quality shampoo and conditioner if needed it will be fine. There are some shampoos even formulated for everyday use. I use Isle of Dogs and love it, they have an everyday line.
Thanks! I just ordered some! =]
Oooo babywipes is such a clever solution!! I'll have to invest in some, that will definitely help with his paws.
Yeah, my parents had a Belgium Shepherd whose feet were perpetually green and brown from our backyard.

Another question: Someone said that I could use Castile Soap on his paws in between washes. Good or bad? (here's a link)
