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

Hmmm....well, I kinda need more info than 'good for people with allergies, doesn't bark, small in size, and needs to like strangers.' to be of more help.
What kind of activity level are you looking for?
What kind of trainability level?
Have you owned a dog before? If not, do you feel you could controll a more dominant dog like a Rottweiler?
How much grooming are you willing to do?
What age of kids will this dog come into contact with?

I'd stay away from the cock-a-poo and other poo and doodle "breeds". They are bred by Back Yard Breeders and since they don't have fixed genes, they can and most likely will shed. And hybrid vigor is nonsence.
So try to answer my questions and I'll see if I can help you out more.

And in addition:
How much time will you be spending with the pup per day?
Who will be the primary caregiver?
Does your family support you?
Do you have other animals in the house?
How much time will you be spending walking him/her?
Who will be cleaning up all the puppy messes? Pee, poo, things he chewed up...

I have no other animals and I have school therefore, the dog will have to be spending a lot of time on it's own. I don't want to groom it a lot either.

That's what I was going to ask, as well.

A lot of people don't get dogs because they're going to be spending all their time with them? Why I am getting a dog is not the reason I put this thread up.

Yes, but as dog lovers, we are concerned for the dog's well being, and why you are getting the dog does matter.

Ok. So you don't want our help. You don't answer our questions. You are obviously not prepared to have a dog. You don't want to put time into your dog. Puppies are a lot of work. Do your research. Read past threads. Especially from BigDog and some of the other young members you got puppies.

I think I'm done.
