I know of lots of very active high energy dogs, but what about the opposite?

How about an older dog who doesn't care much for endless hours of running? You can be suggested breeds left and right, however their individual personalities will still differ. You can get a breed known to be calm and over all chill, and still somehow be stuck with a high-energy dog.
As much as I dislike promoting these dog breeds, perhaps try out a breed which has more difficulties breathing than other dogs. Obviously if it's hard for them to breath they'll be less likely to want hours of run time. Short snout dogs, bulldogs for example. *No offense meant to people who own and love these dogs.
Or maybe just a small breed in general, that might be hyper but still not need as much exercise time as a larger dog. Maybe a Chihuahua? I've known hyper ones, calm ones, yappy ones, quiet ones... they vary quiet a bit and a lot of their personalities are determined by how they are raised.
