She needs to meet different breeds of dogs, and really pet, play and rough house with them if she can. Each dog is different, and each allergy/ashma can be different. My guess is she will only be able to get low shedding dogs like poodles, schn's, weatons, PWD, etc. DON'T GET A DOODLE OF ANY KIND, you never know what ones are going to low/non-shedding and which are not.
Goldens are excellent dogs--very loving and playful. They do tend to shed, though. I recommend you interact with several Goldens before you decide if it's the right breed for you. Not everyone with asthma has reactions to dogs and Goldens. You should also ask you doctor. There is great information on Goldens at this *
