Hi all,

I'm about to adopt a 3 year old chihuahua. I am familiar with the breed and have cared for them before. My concern is that I am asthmatic and certain, definitely not all, dogs can cause me to have mild asthma flares.

Does anyone here have asthma and a chihuahua? Does your dog cause flare ups? Did this cause your asthma to worsen with time? What do you do to manage this? And, if you find chihuahuas to less allergy / asthma including, let me know that too.

Any tips and info would be very helpul.

Thank you,

Everyone is different in what they're sensitive to, so perhaps the best option is doing a trial run with that particular dog to see if it bothers you. If you've cared for Chis before without issue, there's a pretty good chance you'll be fine.
