Is there anyone in your household that is allergic to dogs? ________ 

If so, please understand that there is no such thing as a hypoallergenic breed.  Some people react less to breeds such as a Poodle, but that is not guaranteed.  Not reacting to one or several dogs does not guarantee that someone will not react to another dog or develop a reaction to the dog at some point during its life.  If considering a Poodle solely based on needing a “hypoallergenic pet” and someone in your household can not tolerate this pet, what would you do? ____________ ________________________________________________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________________________________________________
