Help us choose a dog breed!

We are considering a second dog, and would like some help narrowing down the potential breeds we'd look for at adoption fairs, shelters, etc. Our main priorities are: security (we live in an area with frequent burglaries) and kid-friendliness. Other priorities inside...

With the full understanding that individual dogs have individual personalities, and training is a huge part of all of this, our ideal dog is:
•a good security dog
•good with kids (we have kids)
•good with other dogs (we have a rescue mutt already)
•hopefully not a huge shedder (rescue mutt has us covered in that department) (this is less important than the other criteria, certainly)
Our list right now is: German Shepherd. Any other ideas?
