As someone who suffers from allergies (a ton of them), it is a real bummer. This is especially bad when it keeps you from being able to get a pet. I figured that some of you dog lovers might not be able to get a dog because of allergies, so I thought that I would share some of the most hypoallergenic breeds to look for when you decide to adopt. I will also add other information about the dogs because of course there are a lot of different factors that go into making a decision to adopt a dog. I hope this will helpful for you all!
This dog to me is kind of big and very classy, lol. I don’t know if you have ever seen one, but they look like dog models. This dog will probably a lot of upkeep, regular exercise, probably need a lot of baths and lots of brushing because of their long hair. This dog seems like they might be a ton of work, but just think of yourself getting an extra regal and dignified friend/companion lol.
Coton de Tulear
This breed is very small and very cute for those looking for something on the smaller side. While they may be smaller, they will also need to have regular maintenance too. Their coats are pretty long for their short bodies and it is recommended that you clean them daily. They are also highly recommended for those with children. Happy, loyal, and gets along with other dogs is how they are described.
Peruvian Inca Orchid
Now, this breed comes in all different sizes and they can be hairless. They are kind of the coffee cups of dogs, lol. By that, I mean when it comes to their sizes it is small, medium, or large, lol. But, I didn’t see the ones with hair having a lot of hair, so the grooming might actually be minimal with this breed (yay). Another breed that is very loyal and great to have around children. Tons of energy with this one, so if you are an active person, this might be the dog for you!
Spanish Water Dog
This is another breed that will be most happy with an active owner. They have an extremely wooly coat but brushing, and grooming is not needed to maintain it. You will have to actually cut once or twice a year. I think that would be better than grooming all year long, but that’s me. Also, kids would be plus for these guys to get all of that energy out of them.
This hard to pronounce breed (show-low-eetz-kweent-lee) is of the hairless variety. Now, this breed is more on the calmer side, so older children would probably be the best fit for them. They also don’t need much exercise or grooming. This is another “coffee cups” breed in the meaning sizes, toy, miniature, standard. You also have the option of getting one with hair too.
I hope this is helpful for those of you who have allergies and are searching for a pet! Also, hope everyone is doing well and being safe!
Until next time!
