Not a Dalmatian. They are really more of a guardian breed than the non-sporting they currently are. They are extremely protective of what they perceive to be theirs, and your child would be safe, but most other children might not. They bite first think later. On the flip side, they are beautiful, loyal and somewhat easy to train after they've been through the puppyhood. But that guardian thing on this particular breed is something to think about. What about a Boxer? Amazing family dogs.
My German Shepherd is amazing with my sister's kids. One is five, the other is eight. They are amazing with kids as long as they are socialized right. Socialized correctly with your daughter and they will be life long friends (your pup will also double as a great baby sitter!)
I gave my nephew a Golden Retriever pup on his 2nd birthday. I choose Golden Retriever since it's an excellent pet that is good with children and other pets. It is also playful and affectionate companion. Friendly with everyone, including other dogs, the Golden Retriever has very little, if any, guarding instincts. My nephew is now training him a new tricks. He loves his pup so much since it's very easy to train.
I agree with no on dalmation. I had a dalmation, she was awesome. Such a high energy fun dog. But she was very protective of me. She wasn't into males, and although she never bit anyone, she was sketchy around kids. If your family is really active a corgi might not be a good fit with their little legs, but if you are more of a laid back family it would be perfect. Its really good to do your research now before jumping into a dog. Picking a breed that fits your family is so important. Goldens are a good all over dog. They have plenty of energy to have fun rompings outside, but usually will be good for chilling. I also agree on boxers. They are goofballs and would love nothing more than to be a silly part of the family. The more I look into Brinttanys the more I like them. Medium size, sporty, intelligent, not a lot of grooming requirements.
Don't know if still relevant, but why add another dog to a house with so many already? Each pet deserves time and attention. A little girl (even a 5 year old) isn't the most suitable person to be responsible for a dog. Sorry, just my 2 cent...
I would suggest a Labrador Retriever. Though I doubt you can truly improve upon the child-tolerant behavior of a Golden Retriever, I still favour the Lab due to a lower-maintenance coat, a slightly more robust tolerance with the roughhousing of children (I think that Goldens are more sensitive) and a wee bit more independence and adaptability than the Golden.
