Why am I only allergic to some dogs?

I have two dogs and I grew up with dogs, never had a problem with allergies. However, recently I've discovered that I'm allergic to some dogs.
Some time ago, I was playing with some mixed-breed puppies, and suffered the worst allergy attack of my life. I also get allergies when I'm around a friend's Yorkie (which are supposedly hypo-allergenic).
I am not, however, allergic to my dogs or any other dogs I come in contact with.
Could it be something about the fine hair of Yorkies and puppies?
Note: I am also mildly allergic to cats.
