    • O.K., I am between a rock and hard place because I want to bring a sweet puppy into our home, but both Steve (our son) and myself have very bad allergies, we both suffered for years when we had our Springer and two cats, so it is important we use good judgment when we choose..he wants a German Shepard, a little too big for me and we will suffer with infections.

    • LOL I think they are ugly too, but thats just my opinion :) What about some of the non shedding dogs? Or non allergenic dogs? Im not sure but I think I heard that Bishon’s are non allergic, I could be wrong though...

    • lots of allergies come from the oils in the animals skin as well. so not all hairless animals are allergy free,

    • This probably isn’t what you want to hear, but I think they‘re just unnatural.  Ew!

      I have severe allergies too, and I’m very allergic to dogs, but I just choose to take the misery.  Life without a dog just isn’t quite right.

    • OMG, I think .... creepy ugly. A hairless cat is also creepy ugly to me. Just my thought, but if you have allergies that disabling, forego the pet. Those hairless animals need extra care and have health issues of their own. How about an aquarium? Or turtle or tortise? My son had north American pond turtles and of course I took care of them, but it was easy! Just fill the bathtub, let them swim awhile and toss in raw beef, chicken or fish (they won’t eat pork or lamb). They need to be submerged to swallow the food. They hibernate in winter,
      so you get a break. Desert turtles need a heat lamp in a tank, but you can bring them out of their glass tank and socialize with them. This is the type of turtles my brother has and I
      got a social response from them my first visit.

    • Mary, the only thing I like hairless is my legs and underarms.  LOL  Our friend has a Portugese Water Dog and it’s awesome!  One of their daughters has allergies which is the reason they bought Monty.  I’m thinking of getting another dog myself but hubby and I have very different taste’s in dogs.  Oh, almost forgot......I’m not a fan of hairless dogs or cats.  Let us know what you decide on!estatic

    • I’ve heard poodles are good for people with allergies and my friend has one.  I worry about the hairless dogs getting too hot or cold as they don’t have fur to help regulate their temperatures.
