Do you prefer company over alone time?

One of the most popular dog breeds, the ever-loyal German Shepherds are known for their calm and confident demeanour. You may resonate with this well-loved breed if you’re someone that prefers company rather than solitude, as German Shepherds are likely to experience separation anxiety when left alone for too long. Additionally, if you prefer being outdoors and active, you’re just like these natural guardians.

Are you admittedly a little goofy?

A squishy face, a mischievous side, and an affable attitude – pugs are more than just cutesy, pocket-sized dogs. You’re a pug if you thrive on companionship, you’re a bit goofy, easygoing, and exuberant. Pugs believe that they please you by simply existing — and they’re not wrong.

Beneath the exterior, are you a softie at heart?

Do you have a natural #RBF that prevents people from approaching you even if it’s unintentional? You’re a bulldog. And you’re actually a softie at heart. Gentle but courageous, the breed also has a special fondness for children, so if you’re someone that loves kids, this one’s for you.

Are you full of energy and very sociable?

Social media famous and movie stars, Golden Retrievers are known for their trademark smile. Are you a foodie? Do you love going for runs, hikes, or swims? Are you outgoing and love meeting new people? If your answer is yes to all of those, you’re basically a Golden Retriever.

Are you little and lovable?

Are you a bit of a fancy supermodel?

Siberian Huskies are dramatically alluring; one glance is not nearly enough to soak in their splendour. Although they’re the supermodel of dogs, this fun-loving breed is always up for adventures and has an acute fondness for the cold. If like Huskies, you prefer the frosty weather and you’re always up for anything and everything, this is the breed you’re meant to be.

Do you pride yourself in being a hard worker?

If you love being productive and you’re a hard worker, Rottweiler is the dog breed that you are. Rottweilers are also highly intelligent and keen learners. Although they are best known for being police dogs, guide dogs, and search-and-rescue dogs, this breed can also be a gentle and loving companion.
