Do you heart dogs but hate the itchy eyes, sneezing, and wheezing that come with them? While no dog is hypoallergenic, some cause fewer allergic reactions than others. Compiled from AKC, Dog the Love, Pet Breeds, and iHeartDogs, here are 10 breeds that are great for allergy sufferers.
#1 – Xoloitzcuintli/Mexican Hairless Dog
The Xolo is a hairless breed that comes in toy, miniature, and standard sizes. With no fur for dander to cling to, occasional cleaning with unscented baby wipes should reduce allergic reactions. They prefer not to be the only pet, and need plenty of training and socialization.
#2 – Bichon Frise
The tight curls of the Bichon’s coat help capture dander and prevent it from leaving allergy-inducing traces all around the home. This small breed is very playful and social. They need regular brushing at home and grooming every 4-8 weeks.
#3 – Portuguese Water Dog
