Can be: Can be allergy but a yellow mucus is not very typical. Would check fever and if no fever give can wait a little. Stay away form possible allergen.

Possible allergy: Your symptoms could be allergies/asthma due to the new puppy, although yellow mucous also suggests a possible infection. An allergist can help determine if this is a reaction to the puppy or other allergens and help you find relief.
