It basically means that similar things will be more likely to trigger a response and someone who has been known to have allergy problems might react badly even if they come in contact with something seemingly harmless, such as pollen or pet hair.

Can French bulldogs still be considered hypoallergenic?
Yes, they can still be considered hypoallergenic if the dog is able to tolerate them (physically or chemically) without any allergic reaction.
However, this depends upon several factors by which dogs are classified as non-hypoallergenic such as whether their specific fragrance ingredient has positive results with allergies in humans and other animals that have previously encountered it in the environment of their home; for example cats at one time were believed to be unable to be allergic, but recent research has found a possibility for such.
Although French bulldog breeds are basically no problem when it comes to allergies, some people have problems with the high density of pilings around their muzzle and eyes which resemble long whiskers that on closer inspection belong only to cats (except in more rare cases).
What Are The Symptoms of Dog Allergies?

Is it true that French Bulldogs are hypoallergenic?
This is a common misconception that has been perpetuated for many years. In actuality, French Bulldogs are not hypoallergenic and may actually be more reactive to certain allergens than other breeds of dogs. While this does not mean that they cannot be used as a pet, it is important to be aware of the potential allergies that may exist in a French Bulldogs environment and take necessary precautions.
Another misconception is that French Bulldogs require a very low level of care. In reality, they are moderately active dogs that need regular exercise and playtime. They also require adequate nutrition, and while they may not require as much food as other breeds, they still require a balanced diet that includes protein, carbohydrates, and Vitamin C.
Additionally, they need plenty of water to stay hydrated. If you are looking into a dog that is low-maintenance, French Bulldogs may not be the best choice for you.
What do you feed your allergic frenchie?
One of the most common questions on r/dogs is how to feed a dog that is allergic to certain foods. While there is no one size fits to all answer, there are some recommendations that can be helpful.

If your dog has suffered adverse effects from eating the food in the past, then it is best to avoid feeding him anything that contains that food altogether. Instead, feed him a food that has been specifically designed for dogs with allergies.
