You probably need a dog that has "hair" as opposed to "fur". If you look up hypo-allergenic dogs you can find out which ones and pick a breed that is less likely to cause your allergic reaction, Also, get a purebred if you are looking specifically for less allergic reaction, because a mixed breed might look like a purebred and still cause the reaction.

Type in Hypo allergenic dog breeds and google it. I personally would stay away from the designer dogs one because i think it is stupid to spend a ridiculousamount of money on a mutt (especiialy since you can find that same mix in shelters if you look hard enough) because that is all they are and secondly there is no true guarantee that they really are hypo allergic especially if they are first or second generation of that mix.
Here is one site that lists some breeds considered hypo allergenic
