If you're still not sure if the dog you'd like to adopt will trigger your allergies, try visiting a breeder that sells the breed you're after or spending time with a friend who owns that type of dog. You'll soon discover if you're allergic to the pooch and whether this type of dog is a good fit for you or not.

Don't worry — you're bound to find a breed that you're not allergic to. Or, if you're determined to get a certain type of doggy you're somewhat allergic to, you may just have to vacuum your house incessantly and keep up after the dog hair! To read the complete article about hypoallergenic dogs, head over to Latin Post.

The American Kennel Club recommends the following dog breeds:

Bedlington Terrier. This dog resembles a lamb with a curly, wooly coat. The breed is gentle, loving and moderately active. The Bedlington Terrier is happy with daily playtime and walks.

Bichon Frise. Although small, the Bichon Frise thrives on activity. This naturally happy, gentle and playful dog does require regular grooming as its fur continually grows and doesn’t shed.

Chinese Crested. The Chinese Crested is a playful, alert dog that loves human companionship. They are small dogs with delicate bones that do best in families with gentle children. Since this breed has little fur, it sheds little to none.

Maltese. Don’t let this little white furball fool you — the Maltese is brave and fearless despite “too cute” looks. A wonderful companion dog, the Maltese travels well, is social and very playful.

Poodle. This breed is well-known and popular for being hypoallergenic, but also for being high maintenance since their trademark coat requires monthly professional grooming. The breed is exceptionally intelligent, active and haughty. The Poodle requires daily exercise. The Poodle comes in three size varieties: Toy, Miniature and Standard.

Portuguese Water Dog. This breed is fiercely intelligent, loyal and determined to please. Their coat is waterproof and requires regular maintenance.

Schnauzer. The Schnauzer has a natural protective instinct that makes this breed a great watchdog, especially for families with children. This dog adapts well to different living conditions and travel. Smart, cheerful and good-natured, this breed is athletic and needs daily exercise. Their double coat requires clipping. The Schnauzer comes in three sizes: Miniature, Standard or Giant.
