22 Hypoallergenic Dog Breeds
15. Cairn Terrier
The Cairn Terrier is a hardy, cute breed that originated in Scotland.
This breed was used initially for the purpose of searching out and hunting down rats and other vermin in cairns, which are basically stone piles. Today, the Cairn Terrier is a beloved companion dog, praised, among other qualities, for the fact he does not shed and does not cause allergies.
Cairn Terriers have sharp, strong hair that repels water and may change color several times throughout their life. They are very playful and active even when they grow older. If they don’t get their exercise through play or agility training, they night get anxious or nervous. With proper training, they can be great house dogs for families with small children.
These dogs are also incredibly cuddly and make great friends to their owners – in fact, the Cairn Terrier is sometimes referred to as “the best little pal in the world.” They are loyal and loving and great with dogs.
