Thank you all for your feedback, much appreciated.
My husband is not severely allergic. He tends to get a little congested around my parents dogs, is completely fine with Allegra, and doesn’t seem to be bothered by all dogs. We just wanted to get a dog with less allergens to mitigate any issues that may arise.
We have talked a lot about his allergies and our options. I’ve reached out to some owners in my area, and they invited us for play dates. We plan to set up a time to meet them.
We will definitely be sure to pet as many basenjis as possible to figure out if it will be a good fit for everyone! I am still hopeful, but would never get a dog if it wasn’t the right fit.
