Got Allergies? These Hypoallergenic Dog Breeds Are Your New Best Friends

7. 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.
