Default Breed Suggestions

This is for a co-worker of mine. I'm thinking adult rescue of misc. lab or golden heritage, but just wondering if you guys had any suggestions.

She currently lives 'in the country' with her 3 kids and is nervous living out there alone. She is looking for a largish dog to help her feel less vulnerable.

Size: 30-70 lbs
Grooming: minimal upkeep. No going to the groomers regularly. I'm thinking single coated breed for min. shedding, but am open to double coated as well.
Temperament: She wants something that will 'protect her' *eye roll* I say she wants something that will bark. Good with kids, 2 kids are in elementary school and the youngest is a baby, 6 months I think.

Trying to avoid common BSL breeds due to renting.

Not crazy energy. Something willing & able to chill in the house without a lot of mental/physical stimulation.

Any suggestions? Anything else you would like to know?
