you may want to look into medium sized dogs. They are not too big nor too small but just the right size to keep everyone happy and safe.
We love grain free dog food and it's also no secret we're very fond of Merrick. This year Merrick came out with a new grain free dog food called Backcountry. Merrick calls it the ultimate all natural, grain free, high protein ancestral diet. The Dry Line has protein rich kibble, freeze-dried real meat pieces and comes in 4 recipes:
Our dog Kobi tested and LOVED the Game Bird Recipe. When we give Kobi new dog food to test, we always give him a bowl of his normal kibble and the new kibble to see how he likes it in comparison. Typically on the first try, he'll eat a bit of each dog food. On the next few tries, we'll see which one he really gravitates to.
With the Merrick Game Bird Recipe it was hands down a winner on the first try! Kobi ate a little of each and then completely ate all of the Game Bird Recipe. I think Kobi especially liked the extra freeze-dried meat. Kobi also had no bad side effects from trying this new grain free dog food.
Merrick also has 7 Backcountry wet/can recipes:
All Merrick Backcountry dog food is made in the U.S. in Merrick's own Safe Quality Food Level 3 organically certified kitchens. De-boned meat is always the first ingredient. Each recipe contains high quality ingredients and none of the things dogs don't need:

They are also more portable than big dogs. In this respect, we have some popular suggestions for you if you are open to adopting one!
