Here's how Wikipedia defines dander:

"Dander is material shed from the body of various animals, similar to dandruff or pet pollen. It may contain scales of dried skin and hair, or feathers. It is a frequent cause of allergy in humans."

GSD=German shepherd dog.
PWD=Portugese water dog.
I grew up with a schnauzer, also pretty much hypoallergenic, but they can be holy terrors on four paws.

Thank you - though 'Puppy of Wanton Damage' sounds more fun!!

I'd love to have a Staffie. A few years ago, an American Staffordshire Terrier followed Brunoboy and I out on the street. I could see the makeshift enclosure from which he had broken out of to get close to us. He was so much fun!, and smart. I made some training progress in the few hours he was here. I'd have loved to have kept him, he was eager to please, ready for training.

After a few return trips to the house he had come from and no answer at their door, I left a note for them to come get him. By the next day...the pup had to sleep tied outside...he was too rambunctious to come in. He wrecked a few things he was so busy. I couldn't keep him...he was too much for me. I called the SPCA shelter to get him. He was adopted nearly immediately. I did meet his former 'family' and they were happy he was gone. A mis-match, for sure. This youngster would have given them a lifetime of love and loyalty if they wanted to put in some time.

At the time, he was a Puppy of Wanton Destruction. In the first twenty minutes, before I tied him, he punctured a garden hose, ate a work glove and half of one shoe.

Regretful Trekker
