I have a small, a medium, and a large. Personally I find the small dog to be the most work she is 6 months old and i am constantly working with her and cleaning up accidents. The best dog of my 3 is our basset hound while not a toy or small breed he is a wonderful family dog he belongs to my 5 y/o daughter and she has had him since she was 2, he is a year younger than her and he is her best friend. My chihuahua does well with kids but has her limits she has been raised in a daycare setting since she was 3 months so little kids are a normal part of her life, I take her to visit the daycare where she spent the last few months several days a week to keep her used to the children.

Teeny tiny dogs are not so great with kids... And don't get a Corgi with small children around; they're herding dogs and they will herd anything they can, children included! (They are used for herding cattle, and nip at the feet of cows to get them to move; you don't want that happening to your kids!!!) Try an American Eskimo mix...they're adorable, not too small but not very big either (20-40lbs usually). OR a PBGV (Petit Bassett Griffon Vendeen). They're freaking ADORABLE: "Though quite independent, the Petit Bassett Griffon Vendeen will demand attention from its owner when it feels ignored. It also tends to be quite friendly towards children, strangers, and other dogs"
Try Petfinder.com and good luck!
