Top 10 best hypoallergenic dog breeds

The perfect dogs for people with allergies

With allergies on the rise, especially among children, there are more allergy-conscious pet owners than ever before. Before you pick up a new pup that could trigger sneezing and watery eyes, check out some of the best nonallergic breeds out there — that also happen to be some of the cutest too.

Perfecto! This little Italian has a thin coat, so he barely sheds, and it's easy to keep him clean of allergens. The breed is very playful and loyal and does not need a big yard. They're extremely sensitive to cold, though, so this isn't a good breed for a family living in a chilly climate. In many climates, they're the perfect dog if you need justification to dress your pet in cute sweaters.

Much smaller than the greyhounds that usually come to mind, this little cutie maxes out at about 15 inches high and 10 pounds.
