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?

Are there people who DON'T feel this way? I mean, are there really people out there who purposefully get dogs they don't like just because of the breed?
They are some people who will always buy the same kind of breed.I've known peope who brag about the breed of the dog instead of the dog itself.That's what I'm getting at. I had a friend several years ago who bragged about this purebred dog he got with papers. The dog wasn't all there due to a birth defect or crossbreeding. You could see it in the dog's eyes that it wasn't right.My brother buys the same breed of dog all the time. I'm saying,if you had to choose,would you want the personailty of the dog you like or the breed?
