In very early days of researching dog breeds, having said no starting to possibly come around to the idea. Anyway one of those online quizzes came up with the suggestion of a Japanese Spitz. Lovely looking dogs does anyone know what they’re like? Have 2 small children under 7, so family friendly essential, and also detest housework so would prefer a dog that doesn’t shed loads (love golden retrievers but have ruled them out for this reason!)
I don’t know any Japanese spitz... but as a rule spitz breeds shed a lot, like any longish coated dog constantly and then a huge moult where they lose their entire undercoat twice a year.
