Do Rat terriers shed their fur?

You can stuff a pillow with all the hair that comes off a Rat. They shed throughout the year. I have two, one will a gorgeous, full coat and the other a piebald cow-marked. The full-coated one is responsible for every surface in my home being covered in dog hair. The piebald one is almost as bad, but her hairs are so short that they are not a problem. My wool coats, my sofas, my beds. Furniture that has to be dusted every other day to not show hair. I have a large dust mop that picks up enough hair to knit a sweater every couple of days. I have hair catchers in the drains, a Dyson vacuum that earns its keep, and a dryer lint screen that looks like I put the dog in the dryer every time I clean it. In short, yes, Rats shed mercilessly.
