Top 10 best hypoallergenic dog breeds

The perfect dogs for people with allergies

You wouldn’t disown a family member over allergies, but many families forgo their puppy-parenting dreams to keep the family allergy free. Not all dog breeds trigger watery eyes and sneezes, however; some shed less, have less dander or don’t have any fur at all! We found the top 10 best — and cutest — nonallergenic dogs.

Don't let the puffy coat fool you. These little marshmallows are jolly, easy to train and don't shed. As long as you brush their curly tresses, they won't shower dander and dust. The bichon frise is great for a family wanting a small, cheerful dog as an easygoing companion.

Perfect for apartments, they tend to max out at a petite 12 inches tall and weigh only 7 to 12 pounds but can generally get plenty of exercise indoors. They also live a very long life, at 15 or more years.
