What breed works for a family with younger children and is hypoallergenic?

I have twin girls who are almost 7 yrs old and a 4 1/2 year old daughter. One of my twins has a skin allergy to pet dander. Not sure which breed to look for. The dog will def get lots of love and attention. Please help me.

I too am allergic to pet dander. I have a beautiful Bichon Frise, who has hair like us. The only drawback is that you have to maintain his hair as it mats quickly. But, the breed is very sweet, loving and not overly energetic. My Jake is the absolute love of my life, I'm soooo glad I found him. Not yappy but friendly. They also have rescues if you are interested in that.

I would go with something in the Bichon family including Coton de Tulears, Bichon Frise, Havanese...

poodle of any size… perfect with kids, extremely intelligent and hypoallergenic. The large ones are also great watch dogs… very playful and fun… if you dont mind frequent trips to the groomer.
