We Just Love Long Hair Puppies…And So Will You!

March 20, 2018

Don’t say long hair puppies aren’t fabulous when you know they are!

Puppies with long hair are preferred by many! Besides how beautiful their luxurious coats can look, many owners love grooming and taking care of their long hair puppies. We’ve put together a list of 5 long hair puppies that are absolutely lovable.

Have a Havanese, Why Don’tcha?

The Havanese is the national dog for Cuba. These little beauties have a long lifespan of 13-15 years. They can be found in many color combinations, but best of all – their furs are very long, straight and silky! They are excellent family dogs and provide endless companionship.

Afghan Hounds

Now THESE are long hair puppies to be envied! They have bouncy, long and silky fur all over their bodies, which are tall and lean. The Afghan is said to be one of the oldest existing dog breeds. They are also known as the Kuchi Hound or the Kabul Hound. They are a gorgeous breed and definitely benefit from professional and regular grooming.

The Ever So Soft – Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier

This breed originated in Ireland over 200 years ago. They share a common ancestry with the Kerry Blue and Irish Terrier, but are distinguished separately by their soft, silky, long coats. They are great family dogs, especially for those with kids. These long hair puppies require daily brushing every day, but since they don’t shed, they only require baths and trimming every other month!

Yorkshire Terrier (Yorkies)

These long hair puppies may be in the toy group and member of the small dog breeds, but they pack a good punch!  Their long and silky coats give the appearance of being just a handsome lap dog, but their demeanor matches that of large dog breeds, serving as sometimes overly protective watchdogs. They are one of the more popular long hair puppy breeds!

Can You Handle The Komondor?

At first glance, you may not know their names, but you definitely know their giant “mop dog” appearance! These fluffy and shaggy fur babies commonly command attention everywhere they go. You wouldn’t know it, because their eyes are barely visible, but Komondors are used today as sheep guardians! Their coats require detailed and professional attention. As an owner, be ready to separate their cords by hand regularly to prevent matting and to maintain their distinctive coats! Because of the sheer volume of their hair, they must be towel dried as much as possible, as it can take two or three days for these long hair puppies to dry!
