Just wondering if anyone has any information on humans being allergic to adult dogs and not puppies? My nephew is allergic to dog saliva and they are coming to visit and we're getting a new puppy. I'm just curious how he will react, if at all, to the puppy? I know that I am severely allergic to cats, but no so much to kittens. Wondering if this is the same for dogs vs. puppies? Any ideas? Thanks.

My boyfriend's not allergic to puppies or kittens (he's otherwise allergic to everything furry), but I think their allergens are just different, and your nephew might be allergic anyway.:shrug:
