Lhasa apsos or poodles dont moult. I'm not sure if labradoodles do or not though and I dont think whippets do.

I have had a greyhound and a whippet in the past when my children were small, neither cast their hairs lovely. My friend has a little poodle and they dont cast hairs either. Then I got a golden labrador, lovely dog, but oh god white hairs everywhere!!!!!!!

labradoodles can moult esp 1st generation ones. I have a 2nd Gen doodle and he moults as bad as my labrador - the more poodle like they are the less they moult (cos they have more poodle genes).

hi i have a standard poodle and he does not moult, dont know about labradoodles moulting but i have heard that there temperment is not as good as either lab or poodle, i would not pay for a mongrel dog anyway. I also have long hair dachshounds they dont moult but i would not recomend them if you have small children.

Chinese hairless, don't have any hair, so none to lose, but the look really funny. Actually they do have hair, but only on thier heads and feet.

Wifie and I have three Border Terriers. Lovely wee dogs. They donít moult a great deal, thereís a few come out but not many. The one drawback with them is the fact that they have to be Ďstripedí twice a year. This involves pulling out the dead hair by hand to allow the new growth to come through. They like kids but I donít think they could eat a whole one.

Hi. I own a labradoodle. They cast depending on how curly their coat is.

Yorkshire terriers don't moult and I don't think that the Russian Black Terriers do either but I'm not 100% sure about it.
