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.

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.
