Shorkie puppies and dogs can be better for allergy sufferers. While there really is no dog breed that is completely 100 percent allergy free, Shorkies are what is commonly called hypoallergenic dogs.
Here is a great letter from one of our clients who has two of our Shorkies

I just wanted to let you know that Gin Gin (AKA Demi) is doing fabulous! She's such a sweet heart and we just love her so much. But the real reason I'm writing is because I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for this little girl.
I've been allergic to dogs my entire life. I've had dogs growing up , but I never had that bond that most dog owners have. I would pet them then have to run and wash my hands before the sneezing and hives started. I never understood how people can love a pet so much, like a child, until now. For the first time in my life I can hug, kiss and pet my dog and not have to worry about an allergic reaction. I was so worried about my allergies when we first agreed to adopt a Shorkie. We had adopted a German Shepard a few years earlier and I had such terrible allergies and had to constantly takes meds, which had a very negative affect on me, that we had to find the dog a new home only after four months. It was such a terrible experience because we loved that dog, especially my kids, but I just couldn't live like that for another day. I told my husband I will never get another dog again! But....kids being kids, they kept begging for a pet. I did some research and found your site, which was a God send. You were so open and honest with me, never holding back anything, and I felt that this would be the perfect dog for our family and my allergies. You were right!! I, nor my husband can believe how I can hug our puppy, kiss her and lay on the floor with her and not have an allergic reaction. I now know that bond that people feel when they love their pet and it's so wonderful. We now wish we had adopted two b/c Gin Gin is such a great puppy. I thank you for being so honest and informative and for taking the time to answer all my questions and concerns. I felt so comfortable talking to you, like a long distance friend. We wish you the best of luck with the continued breeding of these amazing dogs and God Bless You!!
