If my friend or family member is allergic to dogs, can they get a pet there?

I’ve heard people say some species of dogs are safe to keep at home but others are dangerous for people, should I be afraid of my dog?
The Washington Humane Society encourages pet owners to ask their local shelters for advice and information before bringing pets into their home. Dogs in homes that have already been licensed to own dogs are safe. There is no danger posed by having cats in homes that are already licensed as a shelter or a pet store.
