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.

4. Italian greyhound

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.
