Any advice on a great affectionate dog for 2 year old with PDD-NOS?

My Son has just been diagnosed with PDD-NOS and we are looking for a very affectionate, medium size dog that will tollerate apartment living and does not shed very much or at all. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

admin answers:

I would wait a few more years, and depending where on the spectrum your son lies – he may need a few more years to understand how to treat a dog. If he has meltdowns, it could lead to a potential bite.
I have a lot of experience w/ PDD-NOS – and if you son was anything like my daughter at that age, I’d wait.
BUT – if you are dead set about getting a dog, you should just check the shelters.
