Dogs are sweet baby angels who make our spirits bright and our hearts full. They also come with dander, which for some of us is sort of a life-ruiner. Luckily, these allergy-friendly pups can make pawrenthood a reality for the sneeziest of us. While there are no *fully* hypoallergenic dogs, these ones promise they’ll try their best.
Smiley, affectionate, and so-fluffy-I’m-gonna-die, Goldendoodles are America’s sweethearts when it comes to hypoallergenic dogs. These doods are part Golden Retriever, part Poodle, and all love. This designer crossbreed is often found in rescues, so keep a lookout!
2. Afghan Hound
Eat your heart out, everyone! If you’ve always wanted to be upstaged by an unreasonably good looking dog who actually woke up like this, look no further. Elegant and comical, these allergy-friendly beauties will make you laugh while simultaneously looking better than you.
Ever dream of having your very own Snuffleupagus? Enjoy cascading brown curls without all the Kleenex. Fun-loving and intelligent, Barbets make excellent agility partners, too.
These guys were actually put on this planet to be guard dogs. Oh, and also kill rats, which tbh is pretty helpful. However, we stan a Schnauzer for his fine mustache (and his allergy-friendliness, of course).
No matter how many times we see ’em, it’s still hard to believe these cute things are real. And they’re also really good at not making your nose run. These pups are cheery, bright, and obviously very adorable.
6. Portuguese Water Dog
These hypoallergenic honeys ain’t called Portuguese Water Dogs for nothing! Bred to be the cutest members of any fishing crew, these pups have webbed feet and absolutely ooze charisma. It’s easy to see why Bo Obama captivated the nation.
Affectionate and gentle, Samoyeds make great family dogs. Even though they are clearly very fuzzy and do shed a ton, these dogs have low dander and thus can be a match for humans with allergies. Most importantly, they essentially look like stuffed animal polar bears.
