Dog Grooming/Pet allergied


I have a question about dog allergies . I seem to be okay around certain breeds ... Like golden retrievers and yorkies but im not okay around boxers and bulldogs.. seems like the short coarse hair that bothers me.My husband wants to get a german shepard but I don't know if I would be allergic to this kind I hair... Can you tell me if iit more similar to  golden retriever hair? I know they shed a lot but I think it's a certain kindno hair I'm allergic too? Donyou have any advise ... He wants to fly one here from a breeder so I have no way of knowing if I'm allergic. Thank you!

hoo boy- it's the dander you are allergic too not the hair. My advice is to fly YOU there and see how you react. Or some such similar thing. Find a GSD locally and see if you react.
Don't want to bring baby home and then have to send him back- not cool, especially with that kind of breed where socialization and pack mentality can make or break the behavior going forward.
good luck!
