The Samoyed is a sneezing owner's dream come true. This breed does shed, but you'll find no doggy odor or dander, making these dogs the perfect option for people with allergies. They're known for being laid-back, gentle and "smiley," so they're great around kids.

They're usually around 21 inches tall and about 40 pounds, and they're very active indoors. Apartment life is OK as long as they get plenty of exercise, but make note that unlike many of the other dogs on this list, Samoyeds have a nice, thick coat of fur, so they love cold weather (and cuddling... in fact, they're bred to do it!).
