Hi, in sweden hairless was accepted in our standard for show mice 1999 but we have no standard for fuzzies.
Can someone please link to your standard so I can read about your requirements for hairless and fuzzies. I think it can be very useful for the Swedish organisation SVEMUS,

thank you

hairless isn't standardised here... and i'm pretty sure fuzzy isn't either *runs to check*

Nope, can't see any standards =o/ Maybe some american clubs have them standardised?

The East Coast Mouse Association said:
Fuzzy- The Fuzzy coat is a dense coat that is tightly curled and rough. The coat should be close cropped to the skin. This coat closely resembles the soft side of velcro. Whiskers to be curled.

All Fuzzy mice are shown together and not broken down into section. Fuzzy mice must still be a recognized color and pattern to be shown.
re-printed with permission lol

ETA: here's the link you asked for http://www.eastcoastmice.org/varietiescoattypes.htm

And here's a picture of approximately what a fuzzy's coat looks like:



(but that mouse could use her curl to be tighter and she has some other faults that prevent her from winning anything)

Yes, yes, and probably. :)

The last has whiskers, so she may not be "true" hairless as they usually are whiskerless. However, she totally lacks pigment everywhere but her eyes, which makes me think she is true hairless.

It depends on what else is being shown. ;)

In general, I think she looks ok. Her ears are too high-set and her face is narrow, but that comes with the territory when you don't have any hair to cover it. :lol:

She is what a "true" hairless is supposed to look like, but be aware that female true hairless cannot breed.

Then that rules out her being hr/hr as true hairless mice have problems with their nipples and can't rear babies.

I've heard of a phenotype of mice in France (and possibly other parts of Europe) which are completely hairless, dominant, and can lactate.
