In brief: Absolutely!
It often takes six to 12 months of exposure to a new pet before developing significant signs of allergy.
You should be evaluated by an allergist to see if it really is the dog that is causing your symptoms, and to get some guidance as to what your options are if you truly are becoming allergic.
