Hair or Fur
by: Donna

I googled it and found this:

The terms fur and hair are often used interchangeably when describing a dog's coat, however in general, a double coat, e.g., like that of the Newfoundland and most mountain dogs, is referred to as a fur coat, while a single coat, like that of the Poodle, is referred to as a hair coat.

It has been explained to me that the Pyr has Fur not hair; the difference being that hair continually grows and fur is damaged shed and replaced.
