Help finding the perfect puppy for me

Hello there, my name is Nemat, and I need your help in finding the perfect puppy for me. I'm sorry if this post is really long, I was just trying to stick in as much information as possible. After researching extensively for weeks I've narrowed down my search just a little bit but I just cant seem to make up my mind on what breed would be the best for me.

Any help would be very, very, very much appreciated, thank you!

Health

Health is a must, very, very healthy breed. Being a Mutt is a plus.

Personality

- Extremely obedient
- Minimal to no barking,
- Intelligent and will learn new tricks easily.
-Will listen to calls, wonít run off alone, would be okay off the leash while hiking and will listen to calls back.
- Can be independent, will be okay alone and wonít destroy the house,
- Loves the outdoors, loves running alongside for jogs, or hiking up a mountain, loves swimming but wonít swim off.
- Will also be okay just lounging around for a lazy day.
- Good with other dogs big and small, kids and people it meets
- Very loyal and attached to their family.

Size

Medium- to large dog (40-70 lbs)

Look like a wolf
- husky, akita, shiba inu, japanese dogs, Malmut
- or Australian Shepard, Bernese mountain dogs (other breeds?)

Hygiene

No drooling
Preferably a dog that isnít extremely dirty/smells bad, but that is not as important.
Shedding- would be great if it only shed twice a year or very little. But will make do with a dog that sheds a lot for the perfect dog.

My lifestyle:

-Will be living in a house by the city, hopefully with a backyard but if not, will be going to the parks/mountains.
-Love exercising and am content exercising 1-2 hours a day and longer on the weekends.
-I do work a standard 9-5 but will be studying a whole lot more in about a year and a half.
- No other pets right now
- No children

From my research I like:

- Shiba inuís but would like something bigger, possibly more obedient.
- Huskyís and german Shepards but with less shedding.
- Akita but not as aggressive.
- Border collie, but not as hyper/destructive if alone.


Any suggestions would be so gratefully appreciated, thank you!

I dont think that your perfect dog exists?? ( I may be wrong ) but I think that you need to look at the breeds that you have shortlisted and then see where you can compromise on your expectations - Good Luck looking. Im sure that someone else will be along soon with breed specific advice for you soon.
