Do Maltese Shed?

I didn't think maltese shed, but my dog's hair seems to be thinning & my vet says it is a normal for this time of year... she's having some medical problems & I don't know if this is normal or if it is a result of her illness and/or medication. would appreciate any info...thanks.

I have a friend considering getting a Maltese. She is wondering if this type of dogs sheds. Also, can their fur be trimmed shorter so it's easier to take care of?
