This excessively hairy dog is quite a lot to handle grooming-wise, so these breeds are unsuited for those with allergies. Be prepared to vacuum on a daily basis to get rid of all the hair. They aren’t large dogs though, on average they only weigh 18 pounds. Keep in mind that they like to bark so apartments where they are around lots of residents can egg them on to bark at all hours of the night. That is probably why they aren’t such a popular breed anymore.
