Mama Lisa’s Puppy Hunt Blues

I’m a bit dismayed at how difficult it can be to find a puppy. I mentioned in a previous blog post how we’re looking for a hypoallergenic dog that’s good with kids. That’s not such an easy task! Hypoallergenic dogs are generally purebreds. Many purebred dogs have genetic health problems. So we’ve been trying to narrow down our search to dogs that don’t have too many health problems… or if it can be determined if they’re healthy based on the health of their parents and genetic testing. Bichon frises seem to fit the bill, but we wanted a slightly larger dog – about 30 to 40 pounds.

We’ve narrowed our search down to Lagottos (which are very hard to find) and either 2nd generation Goldendoodles or Labradoodles. But now we’re having a hard time finding a puppy in these breeds. If anyone knows of any good breeders where we can find these types of puppies, please email me at .

    Saw ur post. I have allergies and at this moment have a poodle which does not bother me. They don’t shed either. I also have a boxer/pit that does bother me. I break out in a rash when i touch her, but i’m too attached and she has been with me thru some tuff times. Gettin rid of her is out of the question. But there is a product that can make ur life easier. I find it at Petsmart. It is a spray u put on the dog. I apply it once every 4 weeks. I then can pet her without breaking out. Ask some1 there and they will know what to give u. I think it was 7 or 8 dollars for the bottle and lasts a long time. This should help u in ur search for the right animal friend. Good luck!
