Food which is high in protein. I would suggest to any good commercial dog food.
That depends on what sort of food you decide to give, if you choose raw food diet, make sure it has everything a dog needs (they have different nutrition needs then humans) there is a great raw food diet forum here you could get some great info. Or if you choose dry kibble, the first 5 ingredients are important, make sure in those first 5 there are at the very least 2 meat ingredients, not meat by products but meat like boneless chicken or things like that, a good food will have fruits and veggies in it as well, i feed a Holistic grain free baked food, she does very well on it, there is a food score chart you can find online to check the food you have chosen.

The food that is best is the food that your dog likees and the one that you feel makes them look good. What my dogs like , others may not like. My dogs eat the nutro ultra. They a
