Since you have young children, I think I would suggest looking for an adult dog that has lived successfully with young children previously, whether you purchase or adopt. Still no guarantee, of course, but it seems like it would be a lot safer than getting a dog who has never been around children or whose reaction to children is unknown. I do not have children of my own, but I was very particular when I got Newlie because of the neighbor children coming in and out of my yard.
I agree about getting an adult (or an older puppy 15 months more or less or older) which has "lived successfully
with young children."
