Allergies to Dogs

I was wondering if a Miniature Dachshund and Chihuahua cross are OK to have around people with allergies to animals?

It's the dander that people are allergic to. Frequent baths will help. You can google hypo-allergenic dags and get a list.

Dogs with hair that grows (& needs to be trimmed) are better for people with allergies then dogs with fur. Dogs with hair include: poodles, west highland terriers, scotty dogs, cocker spaniels, etc. Just think of the kind of dogs that go to the groomers fairly often. (I used to take my Westie about 3 times a year - then learned to just shave him).
