Top 10 best hypoallergenic dog breeds

I love you but, achoo!

You wouldn’t disown a family member over allergies, but many families forego 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 — dog breeds for a family with an allergy problem.

3. Basenji

No, not Benji from the movies, but even better. These pups don't shed or bark, they have very little dander and they're darling, so they're a great choice. They do sometimes make an odd yodelling noise, and they can be hard to train, like most hounds). But this stubborn demeanor comes packed with a lot of lovable personality.

I don't recommend getting a basenji if you live in tight quarters, as it's pretty active indoors, but it's great if you have a large apartment conducive to activity or a backyard. He may be only as big as 17 inches and 26 pounds, but it's not a good idea to trust him around non-canine animals or kids who aren't well-versed in showing dogs they're the alpha.
