Dear Astro: We really want to adopt a dog, but my daughter is allergic to most dog breeds, so we need to get a specific type. What are our options?

Dear Sneezing: I’m so excited to hear that you want to adopt a dog! I understand about your daughter’s allergies, I had a human brother who was allergic to me and it was not easy on anyone. The good news is that there are plenty of breed-specific rescues in the Houston Area that you can contact to get the friend that will be the "paw-fect" fit for your family. Some of my best friends (not to mention yours truly) have found their "fur-ever" homes through Houston breed-specific rescue organizations. Let me know if you need any introductions, I’m happy to point you in the right direction.
Don’t let circumstances keep you from enjoying the benefits of a canine companion for your whole family. Not only will you be creating memories for the rest of your lives, you’ll also be saving a life.
