1. Bulldog


Bulldogs are among the most adorable dogs you can buy for your children. The dogs demonstrate qualities that children will enjoy such as being too gentle and loving to the children.

    I had a Chow Chow cross when I was a kid and he was amazing, very hyper just like I was and also very friendly, but very protective of me and my sister.

    The very first pic shows a french bulldog. The author just says “bulldog”, so which is it? It also started that they have a “longer” lifespan of 8 to 10 years, which is actually a shorter lifespan than many, many dog breeds . On the golden retriever page, it says it has a shorter lifespan at 10 to 12 years. I am not entirely convinced…or at all actually, that this person has any knowledge of good breeds for families. Jack Russell terriers live 14 to 17 years and are great companions, but are very high energy (I have 2). Basically, do your own research. Talk to friends with dogs and kids and consider shelter or rescue dogs. If you really want a puppy or young dog, litters of abandoned pups are brought in to shelters and rescues all the time. Consider giving one of those dogs a second chance at life. I agree with Aroriel that mutt are often a good choice. They are generally healthier and live longer than purebreds because of genetic diversity. Call veterinarians to see what they recommend depending on the age of your kids and your needs. They know all about dogs! Please spay or neuter your pet, regardless. To many unintentional liters occur…besides they were healthier, live longer, and are more docile than unaltered dogs.

    As some have said it is the owners fault when good dogs go bad. That being said, some breeds are more idiot proof than others. I wouldn’t call any high energy dog a good choice for a family as the chances are it will not get enough walking and will potentially become destructive. Small dogs can struggle with extremely boisterous children and become defensive or get damaged. As with everything use common sense, research your breed and don’t let your heart rule your head or you could have very upset kids when it all goes pear shaped.
