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.


terriers, havanese, poodles, and others are hypoallergenic and perfect for allergies. I know because i have a havanese myself

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!! :)

Are English springer spaniels good for people with allergies?

I don't think springer spaniels are a good choice for allergy sufferers. They are large dogs that have a lot of hair and they also shed quite a bit of dander. My parents have an English springer spaniel and I get skin allergies sometimes when I pet the dog and she makes my eyes itchy ever once in a while. I own a small rat terrier and have slight allergies to this dog but not to the extent as the springer because she's about 1/5th the size. I think the main concern is if you know you have allergies to dogs it might not be worth the risk to purchase one, especially not a large dog that will give you more dander than a smaller dog. At first I was really sad that I couldn't buy a springer (due to allergies) but the smaller dog has been just as fun, energetic and loving as the springer is.
