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.

Animals have nothing to do with asthma. Allergies do.

Well if your child has allergies you really shouldn't have a pet of any kind because it will only make it worse i know because my dad has allergies and we had a dog and he did do well around him.

They are concidered the perfect dog for people with allergies, and if groomed and brushed regularly, people with severe asthma too.

Dog hair really don't affect asthma. They more affect allergies to dander. But if you do have allergies to dander, and want a Jack Russell, long-hairs are best as they shed less.
