How old are your children? Old enough to know the rules about being kind to their pets? I love all animals, but am partial to big dogs. We have a lab & lab/sheppard mix & both are wonderful around kids. The 1st 2 years of a lab's life is a bit high energy tho & additional training was necessary. So do your research that Kristi so kindly provided a link to & God Bless for opening your home to a new furry friend. :)

cavalier king charles
this breed gets my vote
lady brings this dog to pick up her daughter
every child loves it, and it is very gentle, never heard it bark
my daughter wants a Chihuahua, wonder when i am ready to get a pet, if i can fool her into thinking this breed is a hairy Chihuahua-lol

ADOPT! DON'T SHOP!!!!
Here's a Pedigree questionair to finding your perfect breed, but remember the breed is no guarantee of the actual dogs temperment.
