My family has 5 members. My parents and 3 children. We all want a dog really bad, but we don't really have extra money to spend on a dog right now. So in the meantime, I want to figure out what dog is best for a family like mine? Nothing very expensive, it has to be good with older children (I'm a teenager my siblings are in grade school), a breed that is light on shedding, can be easily trained, and it can't be violent. Any suggestions, recommendations, or comments would really help. Thanks!

I'd recommend either a golden or a Labrador they are both playful and energetic perfect for a family with children, if goldens or ladradors arent what your looking for try to avoid picking smaller dogs if there are children in your family pick mid - larger dogs as they are more friendly with children unlike smaller dogs.
