We haven't had a dog in 3 years (my ex took the kids' dog ). We're moving to a place we can have a dog again.
My kids and I are all allergic to pollen and cats. I am afraid that one (or all!) of us might develop an allergy to the dog.
Of course, we want a dog that is gentle and good with kids.
Also, I have a personal concern. I like dogs, but I'm really sensitive to how they smell. Are there less-stinky breeds, or is this just my fantasy?
Just to be more complicated, we definitely want to get a rescue dog.
