Hypo allergenic Dogs?

Children want a dog... I do not... I Love animals do not get me wrong... but my son is VERY allergic to dogs. I have heard of hypo allergenic dogs which may be the way to go for us... does anyone have one of these dogs... and if so do they shed and make a hairy mess? I am not sure if I could cope with more mess to clean up in the house!

    ^ exactly what Karen said. We have a Shihtzu and anyone allergic LOVES her because they don't react! So I'm not sure why but some dogs that can happen

      Poodles or poodle mix are generally hypoallergenic and don't shed. They are also great with children.

        Me and my son are allergic to dogs. I did so much research before we decided to look into getting one. cause the kids wanted one so bad. i did research on what ones were hypoallergenic and it was the ones above. we found a breeder and they had a yorkiepoo which is a york terrier and poodle mix. I didn't want a big dog. a small one you could carry around. the one we got was home trained. He was 9 weeks old when we got him. and he is so good. so easy to train it takes about a week of training for his breed to realize what they have to do. he doesn't really shed. they only time you see it is when their coats change from summer to winter. Good luck.
