For personal protection and guarding I say the Doberman.
I have 4 Dobermans in my life right now and all of them are excellent watch/guard dogs. I baby sit 2 of them at my house every now and then and they all start guarding my yard immediately. They make sure their presence is known and watch people walk past or they alert me to whatever is going on outside.
My GSD has protected me from 2 men in the past and he alerts me when he hears something going on and he does guard his yard but I still believe the Doberman is a better breed when it comes to guarding/watching/protecting.
