AnswerIt depends what you are allergic to. Most pet Allergies are to the skin cells the animal sheds. In these cases a hairless dog such as the Mexican Hairless might be a good choice. If it is to the shed fur, a woolly coated dog like a poodle or bichon frise would be a good choice as they don't shed, but have to be clipped every so often by a stylist. You might consider visitting a breeder of the animals to see if your allergy comes on. Answera shorthair, least shedding dog there is, a family dog, non distructive when bored or not exercised enough, soft not hairy dog a dog that is good with children,easily house broken, small dog has a great personallity.

Are Maltese dogs good for people with Pet allergies?

YES Maltese are AMAZING for people with allergies. I have severe pet allergies and have a maltese--that causes no allergic reactions at all. Maltese are good for those with allergies for two reasons (1) they have hair rather than fur (2) they have no undercoat that most dogs have (which causes them to shed and release dander). If you have allergies a Maltese would be a perfect choice (a poodle, bichon, labradoodle, portuguese water dog, and yorkie are some others) Hope this helps!! :)
