Hi I'm new to this so please bear with me! Our family has finally started to consider getting a dog, but we have a major problem, we can't decide on the breed we want. One of our family members might be allergic to dogs, so minimal shedding to hypo allergenic is mandatory! It must be a small dog, but not too small as some family members want a sort of masculine dog. It cannot be a poodle or a bichon as they are too fluffy for our liking but a mix may be acceptable. I have looked into welsh springer spaniels and I like them, but please please provide suggestions. O yes they MUST be good with children and fairly good with other pets! thanks so much in advance! What about manchester terriers, we love the look and tempermant but we have 2 guinea pigs and they are rat terriers, any ideas for that situation????
