  • We adore out pet White's Tree frogs. they can be handled some and are fun to watch. They have their own personalities. Expensive to get started but cheap to maintain. they eat crickets(about 12 cents a bug) and change the dirt and moss every few weeks (about 10 dollars)

  • There are many dogs you can get. We have a Coton de Tulear. Perfect for my allergies. So are westies, poodles, anything with hair, not fur. Look into the different breeds.

  • I know that there are breeds of both cats and dogs that are hairless. They are more than likely pretty ugly to look at, but I dont think you have to worry about allergies.

  • Depends on exactly what you are allergic to....some dogs such as poodles or any poodle mixed breed, like cockapoos or labradoodles have hair not fur so most people aren't allergic to them (their hair is the same as human hair).

  • Hairless rats make great pets, despite how they look :) They are very smart, and actually enjoy the company of people. They can be trained to do tricks, and ours used to escape their cages to come to bed with us! lol

  • Depends on the severity of dog allergies, I can't have hypo-allergenic dogs either. We have lizards. Used to have birds but they can be messy. Fish are super easy.
