Dogs and Plaid

If you can't see it very well, my shirt has cute dogs on it.
Hense my question below.

The hubby and I want a dog someday. 
Not yet, but in the next couple years.
(we live in a tiny apt with no dogs allowed at the moment)
I grew up with my #1 fear being dogs.
My hubby is obsessed with dogs.
I will only get a dog that is cute and that can go running with me.
What breed would you recommend?
