Sometimes i avoid pets that have a short lifespan, because when they die, kids will be devastated and traumatized.

You can't go wrong with a Golden Retriever. My friend had a couple, male and female, named Lassie (cliche I know) and Freddie. They're really kind to children. Also, I hear beagles are great with kids too. Just keep in mind, a trained dog is a good dog. Make sure your dog is trained, and make sure your children know not to grab at the dog, touch his/her face, etc. Dogs have boundaries too, so we have to keep that in mind.

You can keep labrador , German shepherd , pretty much every breed can be kept if kids are home when bought as a puppy.
