About This Quiz

If you're like us, then you love dogs, or you love all of them at least to some extent. You love the wriggly little Jack Russell with its excellent, intelligent mind and its compact size that fits so neatly into a small apartment. You love the great galumphing wolfhound, with its massive head and shaggy coat, and its long, loping gait that eats up the miles. You love the cuddly smart Labrador, surely the greediest creature on God's green earth, and probably the most loyal. You love them all!

However, you probably have your favorites. Some people are drawn to milder gentler dogs like the golden retriever. Some are drawn to the fancy schmancy designer breeds and their hypoallergenic coats. Some love the rambunctious hyperactive boxer. Some adore the fierce terrifying, but secretly very friendly Rottweiler, whose deadly reputation belies its closeted need for snuggles and belly rubs. Some love another breed. Which one you feel closest to may or may not be the breed that you are most like, of course. If you're stoical and stout, you might be most like a bulldog. If you're high maintenance and professional, you might be like a greyhound. If you're methodical and just a smidge neurotic, you're a collie. Tell us about yourself, and we'll figure out which one you are most like!
