I've always wanted an Irish Wolfhound.
Shiba Inus are cute, but they can be VERY dominant, and can take some hardcore training. I wouldn't recommend them as family pets, but then I've only had one (she was nippy and had a lot of attitude).
I really like Border Collies, but I think that any working breed should actually be put to work. Border Collies and Aussies are likely to herd your children for you.
I'm a huge fan of rescuing dogs. If you're looking for a specific breed and can't find it at the pound, there's probably a breed rescue in your area (especially if it's something common like a GSD). I would go that route before a breeder.
