I am allergic to dogs and cats, but I have a Poodle and A Shih Tzu. Both breeds are considered hypo-allergenic. However as mentioned no dog is 100% allergy-free. The term hypo- means low, it does not mean zero. So there is much less chance that a person will be allergic to one these breeds. Also consider that one could be allergic to shampoos, flea & tick treatments, grass pollen etc etc that may be found on a pet's coat and it may not be the actual dog itself that the person is allergic to.
As long as my dogs are kept clipped and bathed I don't have any problems with allergies to either of them.
