Default The Perfect Breed for me?

I think I have chosen the kind of dog I would like next. But I am uncertain with myself and wonder if it maybe isn't the best match, so I thought I would post here and see what suggestions you have. Best case scenario you suggest the dog I am looking at, worst case scenario I have some new breeds to research, so its a win/win.

First, about me:
- I am an extremely active outdoorsy person, looking for a running/hiking/activity partner plus a dog to do disc dog/tricks/maybe agility with. I can provide 1-2 hours of exercise a day, a lot more on weekends.
- I do work 8am - 3pm.
- I do live in an apartment (where dogs are allowed).

Things I am looking for in my next dog:
- Medium sized, but less than 50pounds (per apartment rules)
- Biddable, eager to please
- Medium to high energy with an off-switch. I am looking for a dog who is always ready to go when I am ready to go, but can chill/cuddle too.
- Handler oriented (can be friendly with strangers or aloof, but I don't want a dog to ditch me for their new never-met-before best friend. Velcro is awesome)
- Not too barky (alarm barking is ok, but I don't like incessant barking or barking-to-hear-my-own-voice)
- Loves to play, play, play, especially chasing a ball/frisbee or tug
- Not too much prey drive (needs so not obsess over my cockatiel in her cage)

That's basically it. What do you think?
