Is there such a thing as a hypoallergenic dog?

dog.jpgSome dogs may cause fewer allergic symptoms than others, but there are no hypoallergenic dog breeds. Pet allergies are typically due to proteins found in the saliva and urine of dogs and cats which stick to their dead flakes of skin (animal dander). Some dog breeds that are marketed as hypoallergenic may shed less than other breeds, and therefore less of their allergy-causing dander is released into the air or on the floor than breeds that shed more. However, no dog breeds are truly hypoallergenic.
