Lol do many votes! Ultimately ANY dog is a brilliant family dog ON THE CONDITION that u put time n effort into training it... And involve it in ur life! Don't hav a dog just coz it's a dog n they'll let u know sumone is in ur yard....
I have a husky x rotti, a German shep x Aussie cattle and a kelpie.
All my dogs hav been thru more training than just puppy school n as far as kids r concerned... They can jump all over them n take food outta their mouths... But it's all about time n effort.
Best advice get a dog that chooses you! Each of ours choose us by coming up n cuddled into us n latched on... One even climbed in my handbag n just went to sleep in it!

Out of those 2 German Shepard. But different breed my vote would be a cavalier king Charles spaniel.

Mastiff owner and lover here! Any mastiff (bull, English or french (Bordeaux)). They are pretty lazy dogs majority of the time and don't require much training or exercise, just alot of food. My boy (avatar pic) is 55kg+ and amazing with kids. He has let all of my nieces and nephews climb all over him, pull his tail and put their little hands in his flappy cheeks without any fuss. The are very loyal, obedient and affectionate breeds. I have previously owned labs and rottweillers but I dont think I will ever have any other breed now I've had a mastiff.

I'm a Shar-pei owner and lover. Rolly dogs are awesome family dogs. Very protective of their families but love all kids really! They have their tails played with, skin pulled and my boy is sometimes used as a ladder for my DS to pull himself up on.
But agree with other posts in saying any breed can be a great family dog with proper training and attention. We did puppy school as well as obedience and was the best thing!
But if you're set on one of the above I'd go German shephards. Just see a reputable breeder!
