We received the results today and found he is allergic. We both wanted Chief from the shelter
Some dogs and cats are less likely to have issues with dander, the substance leading to allergic reactions. But, no dog or cat is completely dander free. You might look into those possibilities for your family. There are other options for pets as well.
