About This Quiz
There isn't a single corner of this world that you could visit today and not find a dog of some kind. You'll find sled dogs in the Antarctic, hunting dogs in the United Kingdom, hound dogs in the Southern U.S. and warm, friendly lap dogs in every city on Earth because who doesn't love dogs? Well, probably just a few very eccentric cat people.
No matter where you're from, you're going to find a large group of people in the area who love dogs. But does where we're from have anything to do with the kind of pups we love? It just might! Every city has a "favorite" dog breed, after all. Every country has dogs that are just more plentiful and easier for people to get ahold of. So do you think we could guess where you live right now based on nothing but your pup preferences? You better believe we can!
All we need you to do is adopt some dogs right now so we can tell just what kind of dog person you are, and we'll be able to nail down exactly what city you and your furry friends call home. Take the quiz and see for yourself!
