Do you prefer dogs that don't shed or do you not care?

I am partial to the poodle and poodle mixes. fortunately they dont shed but do require regular grooming. But since I am a groomer it doesnt matter much. I will probably end up with a short haired dog later down the line but it really doesnt matter either way to me they are all great

My first dog was a Maltese mix, her mom lived next door so they have a special place in my heart. When I was married we bought a Sheltie for our daughter and a Cockapoo for the Sheltie ; ) Later we bought another Sheltie for our son then an Aussie /Sheltie mix, loved them all .Then a black short haired dog that I can only describe as a Lab/Doxie mix jumped in my husbands open truck. I wasn't even sure about petting her unfluffy coat at first but of course I eventually did. We had her for 13 yrs. till she passed from lymph node cancer. It never seemed like she shed but of course she did but not even close to her predecessors. We still find fur from the Aussie /Sheltie mix and he passed about 4 yrs ago.
I do not miss all the fur that seemed to catch everywhere only the dogs but should we ever get another dog, it will be of the short hair variety.

I own dogs of both hair types and love them both equally. I am not an allergy sufferer so the hair doesn't bother me.
