If you have kids I'd vote for a Bassett. They will take whatever abuse children dish out. And when it becomes too much they simply walk away. No growling, no nipping and you don't have to worry about them running around knocking stuff over. They are low maintenance and very mellow. The only drawback is that they are stubborn so be prepared to do some extra training when they are a puppy.
