Is there a solution to the Obama dog allergy issue?
There has been a lot of discussion about the Obama dog hunt. One of the big issues is the fax that their children are allergic to dogs and therefore they will need to find a pet that doesn't cause problems for the kids.
There are several articles about pet allergies here on BarkleyAndPaws.com and some of the leading writers are quick to point out there isn't an allergy free or "hypoallergenic" dog. They just don't exist.
The allergy is due to the pet's dander and all dogs shed, just some more than others. The best dogs for people with allergies are: Terriers, Poodles, and some Schnauzers. People can also be allergic to just a certain breed of dog.
So the waiting continues as we watch to see what kind of pet they will pick. As we have said before, let's all hope they adopt and find a great dog they rescue from a local shelter - even one right there in Washington.
