First of all i live alone in an apartment,so dogs are not allowed inside,so the dog has to stay outside,second of all i want a dog that can join me in my daily morning sprints without getting tired,and last of all i want the dog to be male. First Choise is a GERMAN SHEPHERED Second Choice is a ROTTWEILER Third Choice is a Doberman i'm really confused between these three dogs,but if you have another choices please tell me!

Well, I don't suggest Rottweilers and Dobermans. German Shepherd is kind of good though for your qualifications. I could add up Belgian Malinois. They're just related to the German Shepherds. These kind of dogs are intelligent and very protective. You could also try Retrievers, but I don't think they would do well alone outside. They're family pets. But really, any from German Shepherds, Belgian Malinois and (Golden/Labrador) Retrievers would do well for you.

You cannot go wrong with a German Shepherd! They can stay outside without problems, are very loyal, potective, and intelligent. Retrievers are great dogs as well but do not do well when left alone. The German Shepherd is a bit more independent and will fit your needs quite well. Good Luck.
