Shorthair dog breeds to consider according to Trupanion team members

“French bulldogs are the sweetest, most loving dogs ever! Also, a benefit is that as a short hair dog breed, they don’t shed as much as other breeds. Domino has a very pleasant natural smell to her. I only bathe her as needed. Also, I love how her black brindle coat has gotten progressively lighter, more bridle, and softer as she has gotten older. She just turned eight, and people always comment on how soft she is,” says Trupanion team member Sam S.

2. Italian Greyhound
