Hello. I was wondering if anyone has a "hypoallergenic" dog? My father is heartbroken that he had to put his dog down after 14 years. He is retired and I didn't think he really wanted another dog, but after a week of grieving, he misses his companion. The problem is that my son is allergic to dogs. We only visit once a week and it wouldn't be a problem to keep the dog outside while we visit, but my son loves dogs and it wouldn't be fair if he couldn't play with it. The dog that passed away after losing her battle with cancer was a shepard mix and its funny how the dander did not bother my son as the dog became older. He could sit and play and his asthma did not bother him. My MIL's dog who is only 3 years old bothers him. I know it does depend on the type of dog, hair, etc, but is there a dog that would not be too hard on his allergies? Thanks..
