About This Quiz

Close your eyes and think about the things you want from a perfect job. Then answer our questions with your most truthful answers. After we see the kinds of things you want from a great position, we think we'll be able to tell which dog breed would find your home as homey as you do! 

You might not think that the things you want from your career have anything to do with the kind of dog you should adopt, but we believe it has everything to do with it! In order to work certain kinds of jobs, you have to have a specific set of qualities and traits. For instance, you wouldn't want to work as a surgeon if you are so naturally funny that you should be a comedian. 

Once we figure out the things you find perfect about the kind of work you want to do, we'll compare the traits you have and the things you want with some of the most popular and adorable dog breeds registered with the American Kennel Club. If you've always considered yourself more of a poodle owner than a pit bull owner, we ask that we reserve your thoughts until you've told us about your perfect job. 

Should you adopt the dog you love most, or should you go for the one that makes the most sense? Dogs are a lot of work and recommend choosing just the right one. What will your ideal job see you adding to your family? Let's find out!
