Is there a non-shedding dog breed?
While true non-shedding dogs don't exist, you can get both dogs with no hair (which means they don't shed) and low shedding dogs that don't shed anywhere near as much as a normal breed. There is a hairless breed of dog called the American Hairless Terrier, which you can read about here. It's one of the best breeds in terms of allergy reduction, and it doesn't shed because it doesn't have any hair.
There are also a number of low-shedding dogs. The breed list for that kind of dog is much longer, and you'll find that it's easier to deal with it - these breeds either shed less frequently or have thinner coats that don't produce as much shedding and are easier to groom.
Low-Shedding Dog Breeds:
Black Russian Terrier
Coton de Tulear
Dandy Dinmount Terrier
Irish Water Spaniel
Polish Lowland Sheep Dog
Portugese Water Dog
Soft-Coated Wheaton Terriers
Wirehaired Pointing Griffon
