If you're like us, then you know that any house that doesn't have a dog in it is doomed to feel just a little... off. It might be the most beautiful home, in the most desirable neighborhood, with all the necessary mod-cons and amenities you could desire. It might have a beautiful yard or river frontage or that topiary sculpture in the shape of a unicorn that you always dreamed of one day calling your own.
It might be entirely sustainable, off-grid, and the most affordable house in the world. It might host the best parties and enjoy the best zip code and boast the most excellent schools. Still, if it hasn't got a dog, it's doomed to feel a little sad, a little sterile, a little lonely.
Let's imagine you have your dream home - and money is no object in this particular quiz. Tell us all about it: where it is, what's in it, what features it does and doesn't have. Once the house is perfect, we'll be able to point you toward the right sort of dog to share it with you. That way, even if you never actually get that dream house in reality, you will at least have your dream dog - and that's a pretty great start!
