    I would stay away from small dogs. Young children has the strength to seriously harm a small dog. When the dog gets hurt it's immediate response is to bite. Small dog will learn to hate children cause they are allowed to harm the dog. Small dogs & small children do not go well together. find a medium sized dog that is a bit tougher & more tolerant.

    Spaniels, Labs, stay away from Terriers, check what is considered companion dogs, check hypoallergenic dog breeds.

    Stuffed toy.

    Each dog is an individual, not every dog in a specific breed is going to act the same way. And 'protection dogs' need to be trained for that, the price of the training starts at $5,000.

    A rescue dog that has been in foster care in a situation similar to your own home.

    or a Golden Retriever. They are practically bulletproof.

    No one can recommend or should recommend any dog without knowing the entire families experience/knowledge, finances/lifestyle and the willingness to commit to a dog for the next 12-17 years, even if any of the previous mentioned change at any time during those years.

    No dog come stamped out ready made for any one person or families criteria, Regardless of type, breed or lack of breed. You'll have to do your own research, YA isn't not research.

    For now stick with a stuffed toy dog from a store, not a Real Dog.

    Protective breeds are NOT generally deemed that SAFE, as family dogs. The BEST breeds for children are Golden retrievers (zero protective instincts) followed by Labrador retrievers. Small breeds are generally TOO FRAGILE for children under age 10 and some are prone to be BAD BITERS due to fears of being hurt or being picked up. Some toy breeds are actually rated very poorly, as pets for children.
