    No, no dog is "hypoallergenic." ALL dogs have dander and ALL dander can cause allergies depending on the individual person. Some dogs have less dander than others and allergy sufferers tend to do well with them. WIRE Fox Terriers are one of these breeds. Most wirehaired dogs tend to produce little dander. The Smooth Fox Terrier produces significantly more dander and is not recommended for allegry sufferers.

    Some people aren't allergic to the dander; however, and are only bothered by the proteins in dog saliva. Somebody may think they're allergic to dog dander but may have just come in contact with saliva on the dog's fur/from being licked.

    You can find more information about both coat varieties here:

    Here are some low dander breeds:

    NO dog is hypoallergenic.

    They ALL have dander and saliva, which is what most people are allergic to.
