How much exercise will you give the dog
how old would you like the dog to be (how old is too old, how young is too young)

anyone that thinks a poodle is frou frou has never seen one work...amazing dogs and on my list of possibles...but im not afraid of "funny looking dogs" lol!

an older lab or golden might work but as other said, thinks like leaving the cat alone, while can be helped by getting a breed with a lower prey drive are still going to be largely dictated by training and socilization.

Some dogs in your area, they are not all perfect so I'll say what their "faults" for you might be. Some things to remember: most dogs will shed unless you want a poodle or many of the smaller dog breeds. Dogs who are good in the winter generally have some coat which increases shedding. Whether a dog can be allowed off leash depends on training and personality, I'll try to avoid breeds who are likely to leave but no dog should be off leash without training. Odor is some what individual but mostly it has to do with diet. A dog on purina, pedigree or science diet will probably smell, dogs on good foods usually smell less. I do not have all the info on these dogs, you'd hae to ask the shelter about them:
Golden Boy: Adopt a German Shepherd Dog: 'Golden Boy': Petfinder
-Not a lot of info but he doesn't bark and they don't mention that he is bad with kids or dogs. You'd have to find out about cats.

Happy: Adopt a Golden Retriever: Happy: Petfinder
-again not much info
-will need some regular brushing-hair longer than you want

Issy: Adopt a Golden Retriever: ISSY: Petfinder
-Probably a heavy shedder
-bad with some dogs, I don't know if you'll be wanting more dogs.

Rex: Adopt a Collie: REX: Petfinder

Meeshka: Adopt a Labrador Retriever: Meeshka: Petfinder

Willy: Adopt a Labrador Retriever: Willy** VERY URGEN: Petfinder

Sammy: Adopt a Labrador Retriever: Sammy**URGENT**: Petfinder

Midnight: Adopt a Golden Retriever: Midnight**URGENT**: Petfinder

There are a LOT more but i want to wait for info on age before I put them on.

I'd avoid a Collie because the OP mentioned not wanting barking several times ... and Collies have a lot to say!

sighthounds are great
but they have a very strong prey drive, and should not be trusted off leash. AND they will easily jump your average fence.

Dont get a sheltie. They are awesome family dogs but the bark all the time. And they are horrible shedders.

Hounds are not good off leash. There are a few that are tho. Beagles do not bark all day, when trained properly. They shed like you wouldnt belive.

Poodle.
