How much and how bad is their shedding? I have significant allergies and am not sure how I'd feel about tons of fur being everywhere just from a cleanliness standpoint anyway. That said, I have a Cavalier mix who sheds seasonally. Even when she was shedding substantially for a few weeks, my allergies were fine and I wasn't at all bothered by her shedding. I just brushed her more and vacuumed more. It was worth it because I love her. If I'm not allergic to Cavalier fur shedding, would I also not be allergic to Japanese Chin shedding? Also, just exactly HOW much do they shed? I don't mind if there's a decent, visible amount of fur on my clothes, carpet, etc. However, I've seen some dogs (other breeds) where you hold them for 5 min and practically can no longer even see your shirt. I think that would be too much for me. I have given some thought to just getting another Cavalier instead of a J Chin but I wanted a little variety. Cavaliers are also hard to find on Petfinder but there are a few Chins. Thanks for your feedback.
