Is the Havanese a hypoallergenic dog?
So you are allergic and you want a dog anyway? Perhaps the Havanese can meet your needs. The Havanese breed is very good natured and friendly. Their happy, outgoing personality has made them one of the top-selling breeds in the USA. They are often called “hypoallergenic dogs” because they have real hair and no undercoat, so they don’t shed.
Dog allergies are sensitivities to dog dander, fur, saliva and urine. Since a housetrained dog will relieve himself outside, that leaves dander, fur and saliva as the culprits for most allergy sufferers. Since Havanese have real hair, not fur, it eliminates the fur allergy. Dog dander is plainly dead skin cells that fall off the animal. While every dog has dander –even hairless dogs- the Havanese tend to shed much less of it. This is because they have real hair and no undercoat so they don’t shed fur and the skin attached to it all over your house. This dramatically reduces the dander that irritates allergies. Bathing often can help reduce the small amount of dander that does exist. Wiping the dog hair down every few days with a damp towel or doggie wipe will collect any loose dander between baths. Simply avoiding letting the dog kiss the face or lick you can frequently relieve the problem with the saliva allergy.
These simple things can often allow someone with allergies to fulfill their dream of having a puppy!
