How much does your chihuahua shed?
Question for all you Chihuahua owners out there... how much does your chihuahua shed? We have a Chi, Annabelle, who just turned 1 year old. She sheds more than anything I've ever seen! Her hair is EVERYWHERE. And I mean, everywhere. BF who loves her dearly is really having a hard time dealing with it. We knew chi's shed a little, but we've never experienced any dog who shed this much. If you were to hold her for 3 seconds you'd look you were attacked by a herd of German Shepherds or something! How can so much hair come from a 7lb chihuahua? You can even see it in the air sometimes when you're walking through a room. I'm sure the fans & A/C helps blow it around, but how is it possible for that much hair to fall off a little dog like this to begin with? Is this normal? She doesn't look like she's lost any hair at all - but it's EVERYWHERE! We tried bathing her, brushing her, etc - nothing helps calm the sea of Annabelle hair in our home.
We love her dearly, and she's our baby, and getting rid of her is NOT AN OPTION. But, we'd like to know if there's some way to control it. Does it get better as she gets older?
Can anyone offer any insight?
