A friend of mine wants to adopt a dog but she and her fiance plan on starting to have children shortly after they get married which will be next year. She wants to make sure the dog she gets will be good with toddlers and kids as the dog will be with them for over 10 years. Which breeds are best for this?

I heard beagles are the best overall. I don't know much about dog breeds though. I just know I have heard this mentioned several times. They are smaller dogs as well which means they will be easier to care for when you/your friend does have children.

Most mixed breeds do just fine but if you want to be breed specific, I think labs and retrievers are considered to be the best family dogs all around for their size, gentleness, and ease with training.

Boxers are the best. I think they are underrated and undervalued as a family dog though but they are fantastic with children. They don't get too large either and are easy to train. A cousin of mine had one when we were growing up.
