So i am moving into my own place next week and i am looking for a pooch. I cant have huskies, pit bulls dobies, germans sheps, akitas, chows, danes, rotties, or anything else considered "agressive". I would like something in the 40-60 lb range that doesnt shed, is good with kids, easily trained, protective, and can fetch me beer from the fridge ....... lets have some suggestions :D

Forget the "Doesn't shed" They all do, I don't care what anybody says. There are some that shed a lot less than others though. Now, here is my suggestion that fits all of your requirements as much as possible.
Don't laugh... A standard poodle. Just don't give them a queer haircut, and they are actually a good looking dog, very smart and can be very protective.
Closely related is the Giant Schnauzer or Doberman, but both can be a little larger than your request and shed a bit more.

Boxer read there profile we have one she's great and smart
Anatolian Shepherd, bigger than you listed but great dogs. Can take huge amounts of abuse from the kids, but very good with them. Very protective, as in this dog will bite if they think they kids are being threatened.
Blue HEELER youtube blue heeler - Bing Videos the only problems you'll have is the first year and a half they love to chew everything leather...shoes my fetches, knows the difference between ball, Frisbee, they respond well to voice and hand commands, very protective hasn't had a accident in the house since he was trained (took about a week) two and a half now, must be played with to burn off energy everyday, plays with our cat chases all others, walks without leach,,, cant beat emm058.jpg

+1 on the animal shelter you can find one just about any size you want
I second the Standard Poodle! They are scary smart, lovable, athletic, very good with children and don't shed hair like other dogs. They do shed puff balls every now and then but you just pick it up and throw it out. We had a Standard that lived till she was 14. We kept her in a "puppy cut" that was basically one length all over. The fancy Poodle cut costs a fortune at the groomer, puppy cuts aren't as expensive and look better IMO.
I also love Boxers but I've never had one.
I have a Boston Terrier that I adore. He's smart, strong and great with kids. He's only 28 pounds though and that's big for a BT.
They're little dogs in a compact "big dog" package.
Check Petfinder.com you can find almost anything you want there.

Well, the Goldendoodle fits most of those. They are basically a mix of all the good parts of a Golden Retriever and a Poodle. They aren't going to be protective, but they don't shed much, are excellent with people/kids, and very intelligent/trainable.

Airedale Terrier, Welsh Terrier, Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, Standard Schnauzer, Canaan Dog, Boston Terrier are a few that come to mind.
