About This Quiz

Sometimes, the one thing you need to make your family complete is a pup. There are over 340 recognized dog breeds worldwide, so the choice may seem overwhelming at first. Of course, you probably have a general idea of the kind of dog you want, but there are plenty of smaller things to consider when deciding on the perfect furry companion!

How active are you? How much space do you have? Are you gone all day? Do you have small children? Are you looking for a lap dog, a work dog or a guard dog?

What about your temperament? Are you high-energy and ready to play at the park every single day, rain or shine? Do you need a lot of quiet downtime to recenter yourself? Do you need an animal to keep you company, or would a needy pooch drive you bonkers?

Different breeds have astoundingly different needs and personalities. Terriers tend to be loyal and high-energy. Retrievers love to play and are generally easy-going. Certain guard dogs are rather aloof to everyone but their owners. Herding dogs need plenty of space to run.

Take this quiz to help you figure out exactly which kind of pup you should adopt! Remember, adopt, don't shop!
