About This Quiz

The concept of a soulmate isn't reserved solely for romantic love between two human beings. In fact, for many of us, a dog may just be the longest and most meaningful relationship that we have in our lives. Over the years, our canine companions can become so close to us that we even begin to resemble each other in physical appearance and mannerisms. 

While we won't be able to locate your exact soulmate in this quiz, we should be able to narrow it down to the breed that they belong to. With that knowledge, you can be sure to pay extra attention during any time that you cross paths with a potential soulmate.

For example, if you are the kind of person that meditates multiple times a day and feels a deep spiritual connection to the Dalai Lama and anything relating to Tibetan Buddhism, there's a breed that has served as the guard dogs in the monasteries of Tibet for many years. If you feel a deep connection to Eastern philosophy and spirituality, this one might just be your perfect match.

Maybe you're more grounded in Western norms, and you'd prefer to have a companion who is the total embodiment of kindness and gentleness. If you'd rather have a dog that greets everyone at the front door as a friend than one that constantly alerts you to any potential danger, then there's a wonderful family-friendly breed who should fit right into your world.

You've waited long enough to find the one. Let's blow the dog whistle and get your soulmate on the path to meet up with you.

Yes, very much so.
