The top 10 dog breeds for allergy sufferers

If you suffer from allergies, specifically pet dander allergies, you might have thought that owning a dog simply isn't an option for you. Luckily for the allergy-prone pet lovers out there, a solution does exist. 

Certain dog breeds are considered to be more 'hypo-allergenic' than others. While no dog breeds are truly hypo-allergenic, certain breeds cause fewer symptoms in humans than others.
