Having a pet dog is such a great feeling, and everyone should have this opportunity at least once in their lives — even those who are allergic. There are plenty of hypoallergenic dog breeds that can grant these unlucky people the gift of a dog’s love because their unconditional love is for all of humankind.

However, you should take note that there is no dog breed that is 100% allergen free. But, these hypoallergenic dog breeds have minimal to zero shedding which makes it safe enough for someone with a dog allergy to adopt them. Before you go ahead and adopt or buy a puppy, check out this list below.

Tibetan terrier


Seeing all the hair on them, maybe you are starting to ask, “Are you sure?” Remember, hypoallergenic doesn’t necessarily mean that there will be no hair. Bred by the Buddhist monks of Tibet, these pups are excellent guard dogs with utmost loyalty to their owner. They have very little shedding which makes them perfect for allergic people.

They’re so fluffy that you could die from its cuteness. These adorable little furballs are popular for their beautiful, white, fluffy coat. Another reason to adore that perfect fur of theirs is that they do not shed. So you can fully enjoy caressing their pretty white coat without the fear of an allergy attack.

Shih Tzu

Here’s another living proof that dogs having long hair doesn’t mean they will bring more allergens. Their name is derived from the Chinese words for “lion” and “dog.” It refers to their image as miniature lions because of their thick mane. The majestic coat of these “lion dogs” will not shed unless broken or brushed.
