Have you considered using Avant Window Navigator (AWN)? I've been using
it for some time now, and I must say while I'm no real fan of MacOS, the
dock concept is quite efficient and nice to use. AWN is really
customizable (bar height, decorations, theming...) so that it can fit
with gnome-shell in whatever way you want.
