Default Need Help finding puppy!

This is my first time looking for a puppy and my mom is allergic to them but I'm looking for a dog that doesn't bark a lot and is great with strangers and other animals. I want a smaller size dog like a cock-a-poo but I love Siberian Huskies and Alaska Malamutes. Any suggestions?

Well, how are you going to keep a dog, if your mom's allergic to them? Any properly trained dog can be good with strangers and other animals. I'd suggest a Poodle, but, do your dog research before buying one!

they're called hypo-allergenic. and well, it will be living in the same house so she probably will have some contact with it.

So do you know that she's allergic to? The skin or the hair or what?

Are you still living with your mom? Will she have much contact with the dog? What is she allergic too? Skin? Hair? ... Where will the dog be living? How much time will you be able to spend with the pup?

my brother recently got a Italian Greyhound Puppy to do agility with.
They have extremly short thin coat (his puppy alreayd has three little sweaters he has to wear). They shed very little and produce almost no odor. The biggest they get is 8lbs and 15 in not too big at all really. It is a companion type dog and does not need excesive excersise and can do well in city areas. They can be shy though although my brothers Puppy is far from shy. its is thin boned though and a bit delicate.

Great dogs though.

BeautifulSilence, there is no such thing as a hypo allergenic dog. I suggested the poodle, because they don't shed, and are generally better for people with allergies than most other breeds. But, they aren't hypo allergenic.

I am well aware that there isn't a dog that is actually non-allergic. But there ar hypo-allergenic dogs. At least that's what they're called.

Yes, they are sometimes called that. But, they are not "hypo allergenic", even though they are called that by some.
