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

8. 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 yodeling 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 he’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.
