Our boys needed a dog. Our family needed a new member. The problem is that our kids are allergic to everything. Luckily there was a West Highland White Terrier that needed adopting upstate. We decided to give it a try. Westies are known to hypo allergenic, but we doubted it. Daisy has slept with our youngest since we brought her home and they fight like siblings. We haven't had any problems with allergies. She's been such a wonderful addition!
