On one hand, I think you should look at individuals rather than breeds (:
On the other hand, I understand being set on something and I don't see anything wrong with narrowing your search to a particular breed. I just think, if you go that route, you have to be prepared to make certain sacrifices. These could be financial (as stated above, the excess hair can require more upkeep), aesthetic (if you're not willing to pay, your GV might look a little funny with a roached mane and no feathers), or in regards to competition (generally, GVs tend not to exceed at high levels of any show).
The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.
