I need HELP NOW PLEASEEE !!! I found a dog that I might buy and her father is a shih tzu and a chihuahua MIX (not full chihuahua) and the mother is a full bred shih tzu okay? BUT i'm am allergic to fur so, I need a dog that is hypoallergenic. chihuahuas have fur so they are not hypoallergenic and shih tzu's have hair so they are hypoallegenic. SOO basically would the baby have hair (hypoallergenic) OR fur (nonhypoallergenic) ?? HELPPPP ASAP PLEASE !!

There is no such thing as a hypoallergenic dog. If you test positive to allergies for dogs you are allergic period. A mixed breed dog could have any type of fur. A poodle is low allergenic for most people.

I have serious allergies and my Shih Tzu has not every bothered me because of it's hair. They do not shed or have dander.

You can never tell with mix breed dogs which characteristics they'll get. Better to go with a purebred shihtzu or yorkie or poodle so you don't have allergy attacks.
