The breeds include mini schnauzers, Yorkies and Malteses.

BASTROP COUNTY, Texas — Have allergies but want an adorable pup to love on? Bastrop County Animal Services is providing an opportunity for you to spread the love – allergy free.

Bastrop County Animal Services announced on Facebook it will have a number of small-breed, hypoallergenic dogs that are fixed up for adoption today on Friday, Nov. 8.

The shelter said that they will have "various mixes of mini schnauzers, Yorkies and Malteses."

These dogs need professional grooming on a regular basis and are best suited for experienced dog owners who do not have children or cats, according to the shelter.

The dogs are primarily younger adult dogs that range from one to about seven years old.

If you're interested in adopting one of these adorable dogs, the shelter asks potential adopters to complete a two-page application form to be considered. The forms can be picked up and turned in at the shelter itself or downloaded and emailed to bwatsondds@gmail.com.

The Facebook post said the dogs will be on a "first-come, first-served basis from approved applications," and that the adoption fee will be $130. The shelter also would like those who are comfortable with shy and scared dogs to indicate so.

Those who are approved will be able to meet the available dogs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday. 

You can find a list of all the shelter animals up for adoption online.
