A well trained dog, won't bite unless told to - though nothing I am aware of in ZOMPOC fiction states Zombies are poisonous - nor does it make sense that they would be. Me I would go with a medium sized mutt or three. If you are talking a mini set, I would expect some mutts, a german shepherd a pit bull and then maybe some variety iconics (poodle, bull dog, chihuahua).
A solid choice except for the Iconics, those are lunch.
It isn't poison but cross species infection that a dog might get if it bites a zombie making it turn into a zombie dog. that's what we are talking about, which does show up in fiction. Also if we use the "doesn't make sense" argument than the zombie by infection myth wouldn't make a lick sense either particularly the part were the virus kills you and brings you back as a brain eater as there is nothing in real life does that (even the parasites that take over their hosts can't do that).
I actually don't see how there could be a zombie army vs. survivor army unless there was an intelligent force behind the zombies, more for the player versus player angle than the GM and friends if done that way, which I think is better over all.
