Pat Davenport, IA 12/31/2010 7:53:51 AM I have a poochon, a bichon-poodle mix. The only hair that comes out of him is when I brush his ears and tail. We have had Keeshounds in the past so you know I know about shedding. Since I'm older now and it is harder for me to get down and clean and I still want the companionship of a wonderful 4 legged friend, this breed has definitely worked for me. Be prepared for a grooming session at least every 6 to 8 weeks to keep the dog looking good and comfortable. Well worth it though.
