I want an anti allergy, small dog - these seem to fit the bill, and they are good with children, I believe?

Or are there other more suitable little dogs? smile

Nice wee dogs, not suitable if you're out a lot as they're definitely companion dogs, non shedding...but there's no such thing as an anti allergy dog so whoever it is with the allergy would need to spend time with one just as they would any other dog to see if they're ok or not.

Yes, it was non shedding I meant blush

My mum has one. He's a bit stupid but very placid and good with the kids.

She is BESOTTED with him.

I had one as a child - lovely dogs. Ours was pretty intelligent. Grooming needs to be a priority though or their fur gets knotty and matted quickly. That said, our vet was a bit confused about the show-ready "fluffy look", thought some people took it a bit far.

Agree that they need companionship though. Ours struggled with being left more than 2 hours.

I've never done that with my animals <whistle>

Many tears animal rescue has many adorable bichons on their books, worth a look!
