Why are Miniature Schnauzer Hypoallergenic?

 Actually no dog breed is hypoallergenic.The main cause behind the allergies in human beings caused by cats and dogs is their saliva.A dog's saliva consists of certain enzymes and antiseptics that they use to clean their bodies and also to start the digestion process in mouth.Their saliva also contain certain proteins that causes allergy in human beings.Miniature Schnauzer can be hypoallergenic but to only those who are allergic to dog hair.These dogs do have dense and medium to long-haired coats but like Poodles they do not shed or you can say they shed a little.That is why Miniature Schnauzer are considered hypoallergenic due to less shedding but the other cause for allergies still remains.
