Try creating the female only and adopt the dog when you move in the house. You can use this cheat 'testingcheatsenabled true' shift click on the dog and click on Edit sim in create a sim.

I think the solution is to update the latest driver you have on your pc.

Go to your Control Panel, Then go to Appearance and Personalisation, Display and go to Screen Resolution. You should see Advanced Settings written in blue. Click on it. 
Finally, You should see your Driver in the Adapter tab. Click on Properties and click on the 'Driver' Tab. After, click on 'Update Driver', follow the instructions and restart your computer. Your driver then should be updated. (Your Sims 3 should be fixed then)

Ok I've updated the driver now so hopefully that'll fix the issue. The driver  version is now 8.15.10.2302 so I'm assuming that's the latest one. I'm going to run sims now and hopefully it'll work

I think we can still fix that. Go to options (In the Sims 3 Game) and go to the graphics option and set some of them low. If it keeps crashing you should set them all low. I think this should work now.
