About This Quiz

Owning a dog is a lot like owning a car: both dogs and cars can last a decade or more, they take work to maintain, and some people have very strong feelings about the specific types. The difference is that unlike a car, you can't just sell a dog if you decide you don't like it after six months. Dogs are sentient, if not highly intelligent, and they bond with the family in which they grow up. Thus, unlike picking the best Kia, you really have to make a careful choice about what dog you like best because you will be stuck with your choice for the length of the dog's life. Some dogs only live about five to seven years, but there are dogs that can live up to 20 years, and that's a lot of lifestyle choices made on behalf of a pet.
