Looks aren't everything. Handsome or beautiful dogs can have poor temperaments, and the temperament is what makes the dog, not it's appearance.
While I tend to agree with this, IMHO I like a dog with everything ... good health, excellent temperament and a nice appearance/conformation. Yes, I've had dogs who weren't raving beauties, one with an inherent temperament problem (shyness), one with an aquired temperament problem (never heard the word NO before I got him), some with poor health and loved them all. But that being said, I still prefer dogs with all three ... health/temperament/conformation!
