It really depends on the breed, if it is mixed it is really hard to tell. If the dog doesn't have really long hair you should be fine. You may need to brush it often for a couple of weeks/months, after a while good nutrition should help keep the shedding to a minimum.

How to euthanize a dog at home?

ANSWER #3 of 6

I totally understand about falling in love with a dog... the issue is the family who visits who have allergies. We will not be one of those families that have a dog for a couple of months and then give it up down the road becuase of such complications. We also want to get our dog from the pound or a rescue due to the overpopulation and the many adult dogs who go overlooked... THe family members who stay with us can tolerate the low shed/dander dogs (poodles, some terriers... ) but since mix breeds are the name of the game where we are looking for dogs, we needed some pointers. Often the dogs are incorrectly identified. And it seems some terriers are low shed adn some are not???

I appreciate the help... especially the link tip that was sent. The help we need is HOW to identify the dogs (traits of shedders/low shedders) since the breeds are so often incorrectly identified. Or because they are mixes, all the breeds aren;t listed anyway. and we still need to tell if it sheds a lot or not.
