I have a Japanese Spitz. She'd be about three now, I guess. Lovely dog, but my only gripe is the fur. She sheds a LOT. Especially now with summer setting in, shedding the winter coat. Either have to sweep/vacuum the house several times a day, or brush her regularly (which she loves, so it is the easier option). My other is a poodle, who doesn't shed at all, so getting this one that sheds everywhere was a bit of a shock. I've had dogs of many types all my life, but never one that sheds so much.
