About This Quiz

Dogs are fascinating creatures that come in all different, shapes, sizes and, of course, breeds. They've been with humans for centuries. They are bred according to human need. There are so many different breeds out there with different personalities and physical features. No matter what someone is looking for, there's a dog out there for every human.

In the past, dogs were trained for a specific purpose. Hundreds of years ago, aristocrats bred dogs for hunting and protection. For people of privilege, breeding dogs was a sign of status and wealth. People who lived in the mountains bred dogs like St. Bernards and Swiss Mountain dogs for more practical purposes, like rescuing and herding. 

These days, people look to dogs for companionship. They take their dogs on adventures on land and sea. They take them to restaurants and coffee houses, wherever they can. Pampered pooches have spa days and special clothing. People love their dogs.
