Default What breed fits this?

I seem to be drawing a blank and thought I'd get other people's opinions. Besides a good ol' shelter mutt, what breed, if any, fits these criteria?
  • between 25-45 pounds
  • wash and wear type coat OR coat that can be groomed (shaved) to be wash and wear without offending breed fanciers...actually prefer a thicker coat (like a Lab or Shepherd) versus a smooth coat
  • good with other pets (pocket pet/cat)
  • good with other household dogs/polite disinterest with strange dogs
  • good with kids/able to tolerate children
  • good with people it knows/polite disinterest with strangers
  • active, but with an off switch (aka, a "weekend warrior")
  • sturdy, able to play rough
  • handler oriented
  • trustworthy off leash (with training, of course)

Shedding doesn't matter. Prefer to be on the quiet(er) end of the spectrum. Prefer no heat/cold intolerant breeds, although would rather have a cold intolerant dog than a heat intolerant dog. Barking to alert is okay...barking to hear the sound of its own voice is not.

Most spaniels fit the bill, yes? Such as Field or Welshie? Other breeds that jump out at you that I'm forgetting about?
