I am currently in the market for a new dog and have narrowed it down to either a Doberman or a Belgian Malinois. I have done some research on both breeds and they both seem like great dogs, but I am having a hard time deciding which would be a better fit for me and my lifestyle.
A little about me: I am single and live in a small apartment, but I also have access to plenty of outdoor space for exercise. I am an active person and enjoy going on long hikes and runs. I also work full-time, but my schedule is flexible and I am able to come home during the day for dog walks and playtime.
I am looking for a dog that is loyal, intelligent, and protective, but also good with people and other animals. I want a dog that will be able to keep up with my active lifestyle and enjoy outdoor activities with me.
If anyone has any experience with either breed or has any advice on which would be a better fit for me, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you in advance.
