I had a Lhasa Apso growing up and I swear she was the BEST dog ever!! Smart, attentive, and great with kids (my parents got her for me when I was about 3 years old). She lived almost 19 years Chat Icon. You do have to groom them often though since their hair can get long and matted.

Re: Need Breed Suggestions

My parents have a schnoodle that is all of that but I can't say about kids cause they don't have any little ones around but he is super gentle with everyone else.

Re: Need Breed Suggestions

If you are willing to do a "mix". Look at cavapoos. Cavalier King Charles mixes with poodles.

My dogs are "gaga" over kids. They are just love kids. They don't bark much. They don't shed. Super smart!

Mini Schnauzer!!!

<--- That's Darwin. He's my mini, he's 4 and I absolutely love him.

So smart, had him house broken within a month of getting him home, friendly with everyone, and he doesn't shed. And I have never met a dog with a personality like a mini. He always has DH and I laughing.

Shih tzu!!!

They are smaller than 15 lbs usually but not by much.

My shih tzu loves kids even though she was not "raised" in a house with them. She doesn't shed at all.

Another good dog is a Bison Frise

Cavaliers shed A LOT, but I don't know if they shed when they are mixed with poodle? Maybe it depends on the type of coat they turn out with?

I would never rec a Cavalier for someone who wants nonshedding. Not worth the risk.

This is why I said Cavapoos, not Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. I know those sheds.

Poodle hair is 95% dominant. This is why most "designer dogs" who don't shed are poodle mixed with another breed.

My cavapoos DO NOT shed.

Oh ok. Would hate for someone to get one to have to then give it up if it sheds.

Re: Need Breed Suggestions

I have a poodle cocker spaniel mix (as well as a pomeranian) and I would recommend a cockapoo to all families. I love our pom but he does shed WAYYYY too much and has high energy around kids (altho he loves them).

My cockapoo is about 18 lbs and is the sweetest mush ever. soooo playful but a complete mushy lapdog. Very sweet temperament and doesn't shed much at all.

eta: this is a pic of him with our 2 and a half year old niece. When she was a baby she would cry when my pom would be bouncing and barking around by her but goober would just sit next to her and give her puppy eyes and she would allow that Chat Icon
