Any animal in the house is not good for your son's Asthma.
if your son is lonely then play with him

Is your son allergic to dogs? How bad is his asthma? If he is not allergic then get then check out the pound. I have asthma and dogs and cats-not allergic to either and not asthma triggers. If you are just finding out about his asthma I would wait with anything new until he has adjusted to the meds and you have a good idea of what triggers his asthma. This should not slow him down once it is controlled-we have had many Olympic athletes with asthma. Do not let him feel sorry for himself or stop playing like a normal kid.

Poodle (they don't shed and have good temperaments)

I grew up with a poodle and it did not affect my asthma

i agree, a poodle or some other curly haired dog. boxers are too energetic they need walked ALOT!!

Boxers are not on the list below but neither are chihuahuas. It may an old wives tale, but chihuahuas are supposed to actually be good for children with asthma.
Breeds that don't shed, or have short hair that falls to the floor, and doesn't float.

Sorry but almost all asthmatics are allergic to dogs, in fact there's not much difference between a cat or a dog, except possibly one . . !
It is very common to suffer an allergy from animal fur, cat, dog, pony or yeti, all fur can cause allergies. In the home the two most common are the cat and dog. However, many asthmatics are also allergic to the `sweat' from animals, and dogs `sweat' by panting. This form of allergy can be even more common but less understood than the fur allergy.
Sorry but if your son is asthmatic, I would strongly appeal against getting a furry pet.


Supermom
first of all you need to find out if your son is allergic to dogs. Take him to a board certified allergist, who can determine this. If he is allergic to dogs, it would really be best to not get one at all. The part of a dog that causes the allergic reaction (the antigen) is found in the saliva and skin flakes (dander) of the dog, so despite popular opinion, every dog is capable of triggering an allergic reaction, including asthma, in sensitive people.

The worst thing would be to bring the dog into the home and then discover that your son is having more symptoms, requiring more medication, missing school (and you missing work) to see the doctor. At that point it can be very hard to break everyone's heart and remove the beloved dog, and often the child feels responsible and guilty.

How about arranging some playdates for your son, attending some social activities like the YMCA or JCC, or spending more time at the park, where he may find some new friends and forget about being so lonely?

Yorkshire Terriers etc are good because they don't really have 'fur' that asthmatics react to, it's more like 'hair'.
