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?

Wouldn't everyone get a dog based on personality ultimately? Let's say I'm a die hard lab fan. There are laid back labs and there are high energy goofy labs. Even if I'm a lab only person I'm going to ultimately pick a dog based on his personality.
i think that a lot of the personality is made thru the way they are raised...
I don't entirely agree. I've visited litters of puppies before and seen outgoing puppies who would jump all over you and lick your face and more laidback puppies who were slow to come up to you and even then preferred to just nuzzle your hand. They had the exact same parents, but had completely different personalities.
