My family has been thinking about getting a dog, but my sister is allergic. We have looked at some hairless breeds like the Xoloitzcuintli. We would greatly appreciate some suggestions of good hairless or hypo allergenic breeds. Thanks.

There are many dogs that don’t shed that aren’t hairless, but if you’re looking for a hairless dog, a chinese crested is also a good suggestion, and some cresteds come completely covered in fur and don’t shed.
