I just wanted to ask a question regarding this post.
I was of the understanding that some breeds of dogs were
considered "HypoAllergenic" such as Poodles, Bichon Frise,
and Yorkshire Terriers (my mom in law says yorkies are hypoallergenic, however I do not know this to be true myself).
Is this a myth, or is it because the hair type is different and therefore
is less likely to cause allergic reactions?
I personally cannot think all people would be not allergic to these
breeds, as there is no concrete rule about allergies and every person is unique.
However, In regards to refusing to purchase or keep an animal because
of allergies, I will say this- I have 2 cats and a dog, and am allergic to all
of them, the cats the worst. However, allergy pills are 10 bucks for 30 days worth, and that is a heck of a lot cheaper to me, than getting rid of my pets.
