Description: The dog is a domesticated decedent of the wolf and is characterized by an upturning tail. Size and lifespan vary depending on breed. Humans can be allergic to dog hair, dog dander, or a combination of both. Exposure can produce allergy symptoms that range from minor to severe. Because dogs are frequently outdoors, they also carry environmental pollens and allergens on their fur which can trigger allergies.
