I'm a major mutt advocate, but, as I understand it, they are typically prolific shedders (unless it's a known mix of non-shedding breeds). Shedding is a normal trait for dogs - it's the non-shedders who are the exception - so most mutts will shed quite a bit.Also, don't forget about the possibility of adopting a good ole' mutt
You can't be sure they won't shed, but many make great, loving companions
A kid should be able to walk any dog as long as they're properly trained. (By properly trained, I refer to the kid and the dog.)when you take them for walks could a kid walk it?
