Best Answer

a hairless dog or at least a chihuahua Unfortunately there is no dog that will be safe around your child because it's not the fur on the dog, but dog dander off their skin. For now I would not get a dog as hard as it is for your child. In time, many young people will out-grow Asthma. My husband had it as a child and it stopped when he reached puberty. If your child has a light case of asthma then discuss this prospect with your family doctor first.

Is a chihuahua the best dog for a child with asthma?

It really depends on what the child is allergic to (what causes his/her symptoms). If the child's asthma is triggered by animal hair, it might not be the best idea. But if he/she isn't... well, then it might be okay. You still want to check if the child is allergic to dogs.

Do chihuahuas affect allergies or asthma?

Yes! They do! It is a miricle! Yes. Not in the way you think. If you are allergic to dogs, getting a chihuahua will make your allergies and your ASTHMA WORSE. This is a myth that they take away asthma. Be sure to have yourself tested for allergies first. If you are not allergic to dog dander, then you will be fine and have a cute active pet.
