Portuguese Water Dogs are considered to be hypoallergenic because they are single-coated, according to the Portuguese Water Dog Club of America.  This kind of breed still produces allergens, but because of their coat type, they will typically produce less than others. People with severe allergies and asthma will likely still be affected.
