5 Top Dog Breeds For Allergy Sufferers
For all you humans with allergies, we have got your problem solved! Here is a list of dog breeds you can get without sneezing away!
Since before I can even remember, I’ve suffered heavily from allergies. A butt-load of allergies to the strangest of things too: From pollen to strawberries and egg yolks to dust, I’ve even shown signs of extreme eczema to certain kinds of poultry! Oh, allergy allergy allergy.
Trust me, it’s unbearable.
Days biking at East Coast Park with the family as a kid usually turned into sneeze-fest fiestas, and N95 masks were my best friends growing up.
That was probably the reason why mom and dad adamantly refused to get me a dog for the most part of my adolescent life, but finally caved when I was 15.
And even though I am thankful to them for getting me one of the smelliest, most annoying and unbearably adorable furballs in the big wide world, (enter: Quinn) my 7-year old Shih-Tzu probably wasn’t the best choice for my asthmatic prone lungs and sneezing fits.
Nevertheless, I do love him dearly and would do anything (note: debatable) for that irritating fluff of black. For potential pet-owners out there with allergies like mine, who are deliberating on the decision to adopt a pet (for Pete’s sake, don’t buy your dogs! I’ll get to that in another post), you might want to take note of these hypoallergenic pet breeds that might make your life much easier:
The Bichon Frise
The Kerry Blue Terriers
So what do you think? Any of these breeds appeal to you, and if not, which would you opt for? Personally, I’d love a pug, but they’re the absolute masters of fur shedding. Oh well. Let me know in the comments below! Till then, see you next time!
