Hi Aurora, your mention of the poodle caught my eye. According to what I know from a friend of mine, poodles are one of the least likely dogs to cause problems for asthma sufferers because (I think...) they don't shed as much compared to other dogs, or maybe another reason. Anyway, there are two websites you might look at. I can't answer your questions about
asthma, but maybe these sites can be of help?
