22 Hypoallergenic Dog Breeds
12. Chinese Crested
Both Hairless and Powderpuff (with soft hair all over) varieties of Chinese Crested, are on the hypoallergenic list.
Alert and agile, the Chinese Crested sheds minimally. They have minimal exercise needs, and will be very happy with about an hour a day of play, inside the house or out.
They excel at agility, obedience training, and even rally. These little creatures are truly people dogs and they do not like to be left home alone. Their job is to be your loving companion.
This is just one of the reasons they make such great therapy dogs! They don’t like to be left alone, and might just chew your favorite slippers if you don’t return quickly.
Fun trivia: ChineseCresteds actually originated from Africa. After Chinese traders let the dogs board their ships to hunt vermin, they were renamed the Chinese Crested.
