The best thing to do is to go and visit with the dogs. The people will walk you through the kennel and then you can pick some dogs to have some one on one time with (where we were they had a walking path) it really helps to decide which one will best suit your family and personality.

On the first day god created horses on the second day he painted the good ones

I've been doing animal rescue for 13 years and dog training/handling for 6. All of the options you listed could work, but we'd need to know a lot more about your family and living situation first. One thing I can say, is that shar-peis can sometimes be unpredictable(NOT always, but they tend to be more of a one person dog, and can be territorial and somewhat aggressive with others). If you are in a situation where there's people coming and going from your property daily, this could be a problem. Newfies, labs, shepards, collies, rotties, saint bernards, and danes are very loyal, and can be socialized early on to accept everyone, yet still have enough of a presence to protect your property if needed. I can also say that corgis, jack russells, rat terriers, and mixes of any of these are very conducive with a horsey environment, IF and WHEN trained consistently from day one. I hope that helped some, and I wish you great luck in your new puppy!
