Not an aby alone but it's worth being aware that mixed breeds may grow longer hair and need grooming even if they appear to be mostly aby

My aby x something-longer has never had any tangles and her longer hair conveniently floofs away from her bum! It’s my short hair that requires the most grooming, she just doesn’t seem to care and gets mucky and a bit notty and generally seems to do the least personal grooming. She’s also the one who hates being brushed the most!
