About This Quiz

People look into the eyes of dogs and feel a connection. Dogs have sweet little proto-souls we can strongly relate to. Dogs evolved with humans over thousands of years, and recent evidence points to dogs effectively domesticating themselves by hanging around humans in the hope of some dinner scraps, so they truly are a companion to humankind and always have been. We are like dogs, and dogs are like us, and that is no mistake of fate.

Since dog breeding truly came into fashion in the 1800s, people have bred dozens and dozens of dog breeds, each with a specific purpose. When Lord Tweedmouth first created the Golden Retriever, it was a revelation and kept secret for years. Now, these amiable dogs with their soft coats and friendly personalities are everywhere. Who knows what peculiar dog breed will, in a century, become as ubiquitous as the Golden Retriever is today?

If you were a breed of dog, what breed would you be? Think of the major breeds as archetypes so pure that few people fit that mold. Every dog has its strengths, its faults, its health advantages and its health problems. We love our dogs because we feel a strong connection, but could that bond be more than just an emotional one?
