      I think you're top ten is a good selection however you've missed the Coton de Tulear. They are low shedders (if groomed properly) and are good family companions and wonderful with children. The Coton also is smart! I find with some of your top ten list the breeds are lacking in trainability which would not make them a top choice for a family pet (in my opinion).

      Cotons' stature is sturdy which enables them to hold up to smaller children rough housing with them better than some breeds you have listed.

      With any dog, children should be monitored while spending time with a dog to prevent accidents.

      "White Terrier" I think you mean West Highlands White Terrier. No shedding but you have to brush out dead hairs. No big clups of hair come out like a shedding dog but they do lose hairs

      Boston Terriers definitely shed. They have short hairs that like to cling to your pants.

      Great hub! Pugs are definitely NOT on this list :-) It's incredible how much hair comes off our pug - but we love him anyway. But in the years ahead, we will be thinking of a lower shedding dog.
