maditai, what happens when your mom is around dogs, and did you know that people can be allergic to the dog's saliva, like my son? If her allergies are not extreme, buying a small dog known to be low on the dander scale might be an option. If your mom has the type of allergies that result in anaphylaxis, (highly unlikely),like some people who are allergic to bee stings, peanuts,milk etc. then I'm afraid you will not be able to have a dog. There are anti-histamines she can take if her allergy symptoms are really mild though. When did you find out she's allergic, and have you ever had a dog, or has she?
