On Nov 6, 2014 I lost my 14 years old female smooth coat JRT to autoimmune anemia. We battled this for eight weeks before loosing the hard fought fight . I am grieving beyond belief. This intense, smart and fierce little creature was everything I never knew I wanted. I am in no way ready for a new pup but I know I will someday. This dog shed beyond belief. It absolutely wore us all out. My question is this, does a rough coat that is properly cared for shed as much as the smooth coat?
