so i want to get a puppy to raise with my babies 2 & 1...but every time i have gotten a dog in the past it either barks ALL night long, tears up everything in sight or poops anywhere and everywhere! i want a dog that is great with kids, on the smaller side (heck no to a chihuahua) and possibly doesn't shed that much. any suggestions?

Dog then. Puppies do all of that. Older dogs don't.

lol i get why u say that cuz the "puppy stage" thing...but i want it to become like another mama or papa bear to my babies. do u think an older dog will still attach to them that way?

Just about any dog is going to tare up things without proper training. And just about every small dog is going to bark a lot. A basset hound may be a good dog. They are lazy and don't bark a lot. And are good with kids.

If u want a calm natural nanny for your kids newfoundlands are known as nature's natural nannys. And become very watchful of kids. However they are a very large breed. And can be pricey.

That's normal puppy behavior and with proper training can be corrected.

true. this might sound crazy but to me it seems like just adopting a mut could be good. i had a full blooded red nose pit when i was in hs and omg that dog was the dumbest dog id ever seen. he literally ran into the electric fence a few times a day..
