Are you thinking of getting a dog but don’t know which breeds are hypoallergenic? Do you know if there are Wiener Dogs are hypoallergenic? Well, don’t worry. I will cover this and more in this article right now.
What Is Hypoallergenic?
As many as 12% of Americans and 34% of the worlds’ population suffer from allergies such as molds, pollens, and dander with dander being the leading cause of allergenic symptoms among pet owners of certain types of dog breeds. Hypoallergenic refers to things that could lower the chance of an allergic flare or could also be a way to completely avoid a flare altogether.
There are certain types of dog breeds that are hypoallergenic and can allow the chance for a dog owner to be around their beloved pet comfortably. Although these dog breeds are hypoallergenic, please keep in mind that it is almost impossible to be 100% allergy-free when owning pets.
Are Dachshunds Hypoallergenic?
Dachshunds (A.K.A Weiner Dogs) are a small breed of dog with a very short-length coat. This breed can actually come in a variety of fur lengths and while most types of this particular breed are hypoallergenic, beware there are some types of dachshunds that are not. Most of the types that are not hypoallergenic are ones that aren’t 100% pure dachshund and are most likely a mixer of dachshund and some other kind of non-hypoallergenic dog breed.
Are Wirehaired Dachshunds Hypoallergenic?
Wire-haired dog breeds actually do not produce as much dander as most believe they would. Wirehaired dogs can come in many sizes and can potentially be a great starting place when searching for a hypoallergenic breed of dog. You can find wired hair in many breeds of dogs and the dachshund is one of them. A well-groomed wire-haired dachshund is a great breed type that is known for its stylish wired hair.
The point of this article is to inform dog lovers that just so happens to be allergic to dogs that they too can own and love a dog just as well as anyone can. No one should be held back from owning a dog due to health concerns such as allergies. Hypoallergenic dog breeds are real and are a perfect match with someone that has such allergies.
My mom is one of them. We chose to adopt a poodle we call Fe-fe, and it was such a great opportunity for her to see that even with her savior allergies, there are dogs out there she can still own and love. I hope everyone gets the opportunity to own a dog and feel the love of companionship that my mom feels with Fe-fe.
We chose Fe-fe after learning about hypoallergenic dog breeds ourselves and my mom has never been happier ever since. I appreciate your reading and really hope you found value in this article and are able to adopt a loving dog as well. Thanks for reading. Take Care and remember, dogs are our best friends.
