Default A hypothetical question re: breeders/breeds

Let's say you like breed A and B both a lot. You could find a dog that would fit really nicely from either breed. But you really do like breed A better. It's your favorite breed.

However you cannot find a breeder in breed A that is your 'ideal'. There's varying things that just don't sit well with you ethically or they're not producing the right kind of dog for what you want. You can find good breeders but not your ideal. Breed B though, you have a lot more connections in and have the ability to find a really spectacular breeder. For the sake of the hypothetical situation you can find a breeder of breed B that is as close to your ideal as possible.

Which way would you choose? I guess the short version of the question is: is breed more important than breeder or breeder more important than breed?

Ok, so it's (very) loosely based on real life. I don't really think there's a right answer. But I was just curious what other people would think.
