About This Quiz

Everyone loves dogs - except for movie villains, oddballs, and people whose allergies have given them a Pavlovian aversion. Still, such people are relatively rare; most people like or love dogs pretty thoroughly. Indeed, a great many people think more highly of dogs than they do of a human when they meet them and are far more inclined to like and trust a dog at first sight. 

After all, you would never meet a human being and immediately cuddle them, smile as they climb all over you, and then let them lick your face - and if they did do all of those things, you certainly wouldn't respond by telling them that you love them and that they are a very good boy. When you meet a dog, however, this is par for the course.

Loving dogs doesn't mean loving all dogs equally. We all have our preferences. Some prefer a great big hairy creature whose mere presence means no one will mess with us. Other prefer something compact and apartment-friendly. Some of us like our dogs fierce and others like them gentle.
