My mother-in-law, Cheryl, sent me an email about this breed of dog that has "hair" instead of "fur." And it does not shed!! bonus!! In my long search for a puppy that we can all agree upon, maybe we've stumbled upon something that will work! Matt with be happy with a non-allergenic pet, it's small enough that Evan won't be intimidated by it... now I just have to wrap my mind around having a "my dog's so cute that I put bows in her hair and carry it in a matching purse" dog.
From the website: "The Shih Tzu crossed with a Bichon Frise. This cross brings out the nose for a better breathing passage and gives the eyes tear ducts. It also livens up their personality making them better with those big families. For those with more serious allergies - they have a better chance at getting along with them."
