No. Smooth Fox Terriers’ short coat sheds throughout the year and, as a result, leaves pet dander in your home. Pet dander is the primary cause of pet related allergies. Because they are small and shed only moderately, dander from SFTs can be better controlled with regular brushing than is possible with other dogs. This may minimize symptoms in some people. But keep in mind that no dog is 100 percent hypoallergenic, no matter their grooming requirements or type of coat.
