What Kind of Dog Is Right for Your Family?

Bichon Frise and Havanese

Why It's a Winner

Playful and loving, these small breeds are good for city dwellers. They're also great for kids with allergies or asthma because they have hair instead of fur. Both breeds like to perch on the back of a couch or chair so they can peer out the window at passersby.

Special Care

These breeds don't shed much, but they do require professional grooming every month to keep their coats from matting.

Word of Caution

Since these breeds are sensitive to pain, they aren't fond of being tugged on by an overzealous toddler. They do best with children over 3 years old.
