Are you an inveterate dog lover and wish to take home a pup but especially a hypoallergenic whelp or dog breed? Then you’re in good company as 1 out of every 10 people or about 10% of the US populace is allergic or sensitive to dogs. You can safely conclude that dogs excite allergic reactions in you if you cough, wheeze, and sneeze, have a runny nose, or itchy red eyes whenever you’re near one.
So you’ll need to go for a hypoallergenic dog breed that has a single coat and sheds minimally like a poodle, Afghan hound, Bedlington terrier, Basenji, and American Hairless Terrier. However, before you start looking for a hypoallergenic canine, bear in mind that almost all breeds are hypoallergenic to some extent.
- Have a single coat with minimal hair
- Hardly sheds hairs (some breeds don’t shed at all)
- Since such breeds hardly shed, they’ll require a regular haircut
