    Articledog breed guidesWednesday 18 May 2011

    When considering puppies for sale, it is important to make sure that the breed you choose is suitable for all aspects of your lifestyle. Bringing a dog for sale home and then realising you are not compatible is unfair to the dog as you look to re-home it. To avoid this from happening, you should know whether the breed you choose is likely to affect your health and flair up allergies in advance. This list details some of the most popular dogs for allergies sufferers and will prevent you from choosing a puppy that is inappropriate for your health. 

    Puppies for Sale – About Allergies

    Whilst no dog breed is 100% non-allergenic, there are plenty that are hypoallergenic (have little to no affect on human allergies). The protein that causes people to suffer from allergies is not only present in the dog’s coat, but is also found in their saliva, mucous and urine. However, certain dogs for allergies can be chosen because they do not shed hair or do not have an undercoat.

     1.  Bichon Frise for Sale

    One of the most popular toy dog breeds, getting a Bichon Frise for sale is suitable for allergy sufferers, despite the coat needing to be brushed every single day. 

    2.  Afghan Hound

    This kind of dog for sale has extremely long hair and requires frequent grooming. However, its coat should never be trimmed and must remain as it is. This is generally a loveable breed, but should be trained properly. 

    3.  Greyhound

    The hair on these puppies for sale is very short and doesn’t need much grooming at all. As the fastest dog in the world, these talented dogs are used for competing in a range of activities. They are a gentle breed that loves affection and being with the family. 

    4.  Lhasa Apso (pictured above) 

    This breed is weary of strangers and needs its coat brushed daily. They require a fair amount of attention and do not take too kindly to small children. 

    5.  Border Terrier
