I'm not sure if you are asking if English Bulldogs have allergies, or if they are ok for people with allergies, but I can answer both...My Bully has TERRIBLE allergies, which is common with the breed. He was allergy tested and is allergic to pretty much everything outside. I had to order allergy serum, just like for people and he gets a shot every 10 days, Benadryl every day, Methyl Pred every day and Pred Acetate eye drops every day. As for people with allergies...I have a black Lab too, my husband had no problems with him, only the cat. Then I got my Bully, he is serverly allergic to him. He even breaks out in a rash on his arms or legs from the dogs saliva. If he pets the dog, he has to wash his hands right after. Our animals have learned their dad pets them with his feet. They do have something called Allerpet that you can use on dogs to help with human allergies, but given my Bullys allergies, I'm not trying it. Hope this helped with your question.
