?what dog breeds have human hair or non allergic fur?

i have mild allergies to dogs and im thinking of getting one and could you tell me breeds of dogs with very human like fur. and preferably one that doesn't shed a lot



?what dog breeds have human hair or non allergic fur?

No dog has human hair. It's not the hair that you are allergic to, but the dander.



I've heard that Poodles are a low allergy dog.



ADD:



When my son was little, he had severe allergies and asthma. I wanted a dog very badly. I finally convinced my husband and we went and bought a toy Poodle. Before I purchased the dog, I let the breeder know of my situation and concerns. Sadly, I had to return the puppy to the breeder 3 days later because even a Poodle was too much for my son to handle.



Since you have mild allergies, I don't foresee much of a problem, but you should tell your concerns to the breeder.



?what dog breeds have human hair or non allergic fur?

None. It is not the hair, it is the dander that is produced by the dog's skin that is the problem. All dogs have and produce it, some more then others.



?what dog breeds have human hair or non allergic fur?

No dog is hypo allergenic and if any breeder tells you this they are just trying to make more money off you. It is the DANDER that most people are allergic to NOT the fur.



Poodles are probably the least shedding of dogs but they require grooming and brushing which can be expensive and time consuming.



Diet and bathing can help keep down the dander. I am extremely allergic to animals and I have 2 dogs and 3 cats. I bathe them weekly and each bathing consists of 3 latherings and Im not stingy with the soap. 3 latherings apparently is the magical number for myself and dander. Might work for you as well.



?what dog breeds have human hair or non allergic fur?

No breeds have human hair, but some breeds are non-shedding.



Poodles, Bichon Frise, Yorkie, and Maltese.



There are some others that have "hypo allergenic" fur, but these are the ones that I can remember right now.



Mixes of these breeds are OK, too. I'm sure that there are some in a shelter near you.



Good Luck :)

Labradoodles are non allergenic breeds, they are also very cute. Great dog to have really, but they can be expensive.



?what dog breeds have human hair or non allergic fur?

We have yorkie terrier and they do not effect my sons allergies.. Also poodles are good as well!



?what dog breeds have human hair or non allergic fur?

Although there is no true breed of dog that people aren't allergic to, there are breeds of dogs that have hair. You are actually allergic to the dander and not the fur, but dogs with hair are very low allergy.



I have a friend whose whole family is very allergic to dogs and they have several breeds of dogs that have hair and don't have a problem. Please keep in mind that there is a small chance you may be severely allergic to dogs' dander and no breed of dog will be okay with your allergies. Bathings the dog weekly will help your allergies a lot.



Here is a list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypoallerge...



?what dog breeds have human hair or non allergic fur?

Maltese do not shed and are hypoallergenic. :) Good Luck!

Soft coated wheaten terrier

It's not the fur that's the problem.. It's the dander that's produced by the dog that is the problem.. You want to avoid breeds that produce alot of dander.. A good air filter, vacuuming daily, and keeping the dog brushed and clean goes along way in helping with allergies..



?what dog breeds have human hair or non allergic fur?

No dogs are non-allergenic or have human hair.



Double coated breeds (with an undercoat, plus top hair) shed more than others, but all dogs shed.



Anyone who tells you that there are hypo-allergenic dogs is either ignorent or a breeder trying to sell you a dog.



In any case, it is the dander, not the fur which causes allergies and dander comes from the skin of the dog (or cat).



The ideal thing would be if you could volunteer at a shelter and stay around certain dogs for days to see which trigger your allergies and which do not.



I have a granddaughter with allergies, she is allergic to some of my dogs, but not others (I am active in rescue).



Make sure you are with a particular dog long enough to know for sure (rub your face in his fur, etc. - get close to the animal for quite a while) so that you do not end up with a dog you have to give up, that would be cruel for you and especially for the dog.



Good luck, I hope you find a dog you can live with comfortably.



?what dog breeds have human hair or non allergic fur?

Sorry, no human hair. But the reduced shedders are poodles, schnauzers, etc. They typically have a low allergic trigger too.

?what dog breeds have human hair or non allergic fur?

I have really bad allergies on cats and dogs, which sucks because I really want a dog. So I asked a question almost like this and some peoples said that there isn't a dog that is 100% "hypoallergenic" but there are dogs that dont shed as much as other dogs. So if you just search hypoallergenic dogs on google, there will be a list of dog breeds that dont shed to much. And i'm planning on getting a Coton De Tulear, because they have a double coat and need hand-stripping, so then the shedding is minimal.



Hope that helps!



And good luck finding a dog!

Basenjis are usually okay with people with allergies. They have short hair and do not shed much. They make really great pets. I was going to get one but decided to adopt a foxhound from the humane society.
