  • I too am allergic to dogs and many dogs are not really hypoallergenic dog, but here what I found. Here are some websites to help you further: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypoallergenic_dog_breed

    I've done my internet searches and found that a bolognese dog will be good for our family, since the dog unlike the ones in the website all have some sort of health issues.

If I find it I will e-mail to you. Good luck

  • There are no hypoallergenic dogs. It's a misnomer. Allergies originate with the sloughed off dead skins cells and saliva, not the fur or hair.

  • A Bichon or Poodle! No shedding, and awesome little dogs. Bichon's are very playful while Poodles are more sedate. I have both!

  • There are no such things as hypoallergenic dogs.

    I used to know someone who insisted her dog was hypoallergenic, yet every time my dd, who is allergic to dogs, got near, she got red, puffy, and itchy. Hypoallergenic my ass.
