I think the gist of Samantha's post is that it is not safe to say that a particular breed is entirely hypoallergenic. Some dogs just happen to be less reactive to people prone to allergies.

Saying that a specific breed is 100 per cent hypoallergenic for everyone can cause problems if people buy them and then turn out to have a reaction. As one poster already mentioned, everyone is unique and will react differently to each breed, so we cannot safely call these breeds hypoallergenic, as that would be a misleading statement.
