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?

Most people who are into one breed of dog are into that breed because they like the typical personality traits of those dogs.
This is what first came to my mind. I like the breed because of the typical personality of a well-bred and cared-for member of the breed.

Having said that, I would choose personality over the breed. I believe my personality preferences could be found in several breeds.

It's just that there are other traits about the breed besides personality that I love, and they may be missing.

So I want it all! I want both! :D
