About This Quiz

The USA is a truly dog-loving nation. Over a third of households - more than 43,000,000 - have a canine companion, and because some of these households have two, three or four dogs, that means there are nearly 70,000,000 dogs in the country! So no matter who you are and what you are like, there is a dog out there who has a personality that would make them that particular pooch the ideal pal for you.

Your doggie match will think the way you do. They will be happy when you are happy, not just because you're happy (as all dogs can pick up on such things), but also because the thing that made you happy also delights them. They will share your fears and your hopes. They will want to exercise exactly as much as you do and avoid very hot or cold weather, just like you. They will share your opinion of the other dogs at the park and protect your home because it is the perfect home for them. People who see you together will say, "Wow, dogs and their owners really do start to look like each other."
