best bones for starting out

I'm currently feeding my beagle mix 4oz of nature's variety frozen raw in the morning and 1/2 cup of canidae at night. When the canidae is gone I plan on going all raw. I would like to go the RMB route but am worried about the bones. Not so much that something will get damaged internally but more about her teeth as she has broken 2 off in the past year that had to be removed. We don't know how she broke them off. So, what would be the best RMB to start off with that's a bit easier on the teeth? Also, if it's in the 1/4-1/2lb range that would be even better . Thanks!

How is she with Pork, Pork riblets are my personal fave as they are large enough to make a great chew and you can get some meaty examples (pork breast is also very meaty and has soft bones).
Turkey legs can be quite tough at that size, but you could go a chicken quarters. Both options are also cheap and you can suppliment with some boneless meat/organ/ground to make up the meal.

I haven't tried pork yet, but I don't really anticipate any problems since she hasn't had any so far. She has had the NV lamb and the chicken & turkey so far.Thanks for the suggestions!
