Default Breed for my parents?

So in a year or so when I move out with my crew, my parents are going to want a dog. They want to keep Dakota but I think I've convinced them that he's a little too much dog for them.

So, I've been looking for a breed for them. They want a good natured, large (over 40lbs) dog that is inherently kind and accepting of people and other animals. They really prefer a quiet dog (not a lot of barking) and while they want to take the dog on walks, they don't want a lot of energy. If at all possible, they want a dog that is content to be with them and not extremely strong-willed.

I've been thinking that a Golden Retriever would be good for them, and they definitely like Goldens, but the hair is a concern - they'd like something with a shorter, thinner coat since it gets so hot here. I've been racking my brain and I can't think of a breed that would suit them. I adore Whippets and would love to see them with one, but they are just a little too small.

So, any suggestions? (Oh, btw, rescue is not an option - they want a well-bred puppy)
