About This Quiz

The American Kennel Club officially recognizes just over 200 breeds of dog. Of course, there are many other breeds that they don't recognize yet as well, a couple hundred in fact. Suffice it to say that there are a lot of different pups out there in the world, all with a unique look or personality that makes them different and special in one way or another. And if you're a dog lover it just means there are a heck of a lot of pups that need to be petted. But if you had to choose just one of those dogs to be your dog, how would you decide? Where would you even begin? And then if you had to figure not just what dog you wanted to be a part of your life, but what dog was a part of you? Well, that's another matter entirely.

If you have an affinity for dogs, and you feel a connection with them, maybe you really do have a link to these animals on a spiritual level. The idea of spirit animals had to come from somewhere, right? And some animals really do seem to know things and connect on a level that's almost beyond what you can explain. So if you do connect with a dog, and there's one particular kind guarding your soul, why don't we find out what it is?
