Based on hair length, dog breeds can be divided into three types, hairless, short-haired and long-haired breeds. Short hair is dominant to long hair. The length of the hair is variable within individuals and across the breeds. Most animals grow their hair to a specific length and then the hair growth stops. The longer the anagen period, the longer the hair grows. Coat variation in dogs (length and texture) is governed by variants in three genes (Wayne RK, 2009, Cadieu E, 2009). Hereditary hair length variability in dogs is caused by mutations within the fibroblast growth factor (FGF5) gene.
- Hairless breeds often have little to no hair. Some hairless breeds have noticeable patches of hair on their heads. Great care should be taken to protect and moisturize their skin.
- Single-coated breeds have a topcoat, but lack an undercoat. Single-coated breeds are often referred to as ‘non-shedding’ breeds because their shedding is so minimal, it is often unnoticed.
- The hair lies close to the body. Quite often short-haired dogs have the highest density of follicles, resulting in more topcoat and less undercoat. Short-haired breeds are classified as dogs having hair shorter than 2 inches.
