About This Quiz

Dogs are humanity's best friends for a reason. If you adopt a dog, it will love you absolutely and completely for its whole life. It will listen to all of your problems and never judge or shame you. It will think of you as perfect and beautiful and always support your endeavors. When you are sad, your dog will comfort you, and when you are happy, your dog will celebrate with you. Your dog will be your rock and your playmate. The only thing it will ever really do wrong - besides eating your furniture when it's a puppy - is not live as long as you might wish.

However, while all dogs are thus good dogs, they are also all individuals. They love us in their own special ways, according to their breed, their personality and their previous life experiences. Some are more exuberant and just want to run around with us while others are more intelligent and prefer to play specific games, while still others are all about the snuggles. That means that whatever you're like personally, there's a dog breed that matches your temperament, your preferences and your habits. Take this quiz to find out just what it is!
