Welcome to pets.ca
Hard to find a dog that don't shed. :shrug:
"Shih poos" can not be characterized as a non-shedding breed. Because they are mutts, you cannot be sure;)

Here (http://www.akc.org/breeds/bichon_frise/index.cfm) is the bichon breed standard. They are small dogs. You can check http://www.petfinder.com for any bichons or other breeds who need homes in your area.

Welcome to the forum! :)

Hi and welcome,

"Non shedding" dogs really do not exist, however some shed far less than others. Low shedding small dogs that come to mind are Min Poodles, Yorkshire Terriers, Silky Terriers, Maltese.

Please consider adopting from your local shelter / rescue or from a reputable breeder and not from newspaper classifieds. Most people who sell through the newspapers are either BYB's or puppy mills (or agents for puppymills). These outfits are not interested in bettering the breed but are interested in your $$.

Best of luck in your search.

That is great. Much better to go through petfinder than ads in a newspaper like others have already said :highfive:
