Just a friendly tip:

Which ever breed you choose, go to the breeder's house and see if you have allergies to their dogs before getting one. Sit with which ever pup you choose for a long while and make sure to come back a few times just to make sure you are in the clear and bring everyone else too to see if they are allergic.

Same if you choose a dog from a rescue, see if you are compatible in all ways (more than just allergies)

The best breed to have is a goldendoodle, or a poodle, teacup or miniature, if you want a small dog.

No dog breed is hypoallergenic, all dogs shed and all humans shed. Some dog breeds may be better for people who have allergies but no dog breed is hypoallergenic.

Breeds like the Poodle, Bichon Frise, Border Terrier, Lagotto Romagnolo, Shih Tzu, Yorkshire Terrier, Silky Terrier, Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, Schnauzer (Miniature, Standard and Giant), Komondor, Portuguese Water Dog, Spanish Water Dog, Polish Lowland Sheepdog, Lowchen, Kerry Blue Terrier and Airedale Terrier are all great for people who suffer from allergies.
