is it the breed or the personality of the dog you like the best?

I had a Bullmastiff years ago and she had the best temperment and peronality of any dog I had.I had other dogs since,and they were no comparison.Of course they was all males,but I don't think it had anything to do with it.The dog I have now will most likely be close in temperment,once she gets out of the puppy stage.Snowball is sweet and gentle,even at her goofy stage.I've always wanted another Bullmastiff in hoping I'd have another Ginger.But I've come to grips with the fact it doesn't matter what breed of dog I have,I want the dog with the same traits,temperment,and personality.Any of you feel this way?

I like dogs that don't need constant in-your-face attention. Plus, aesthetically, I like the northern breeds best (mostly because that's what I grew up with).

Most of the northern breeds I have met have been highly intelligent, independent thinkers that are very sweet natured.

Plus, they will force you to have a sense of humor because they often do tricks their own way, and not necessarily the way YOU as the handler think they should be done.

Everyone is different. I could find what I'm looking for perhaps in a mix of some kind, but I know that pretty much if I get a northern dog what I'm getting into.

I guess that's why I pick breeds over individual dogs.
