For potential pet-owners out there with allergies like mine, you might want to take note of these hypoallergenic pet breeds that might make your life much easier:
More commonly known as powder puff dogs, these little cotton puffs of joy are renowned for their soft silky undercoat beneath their coarser and unruly outer coat.
The Kerry Blue Terriers
Their coats, soft and dense, are not as prone to shedding as much as other breeds do. Yes, we can’t see their eyes either.
Ah, finally something more commonly found in Singapore. Labradoodles are crossbreeds, the offspring of Labradors and Poodles. A popular choice amongst owners, these babies are known to be one of the best at being hypoallergenic.
Small, fluffy and frustratingly adorable, Maltese fur can grow to considerable lengths – But all can be solved with just a trip to the groomers and a daily wipe down with a baby wipe. They don’t shed as much as I thought, how unexpected!
Smaller schnauzers (as compared to their giant counterparts) may be more manageable for people with allergies due to the fact that they not only shed less fur, but the shorter hairs indicate less nose-tickling – And that’s always a good thing!
