I do suffer from allergies in general (never been told Im allergic to dog), but Ive always wanted a boxer or a french bulldogs, both of which are not hypoallergenic, then I looked at my lifestyle and kept reading about dogs and found that bulldog went more with waht I need (low energy, low excercise, etc). So far i have not had any problems with allergies ( and i am very prone to allergies). Ive had him for almost two months. So this allergy issue, I have to say, just try him (i did feel a lil bit the first week i got him, maybe it was coincidence or maybe I just got used to it?).
