About This Quiz

There are so many ways to build your dream home. Not only is there the actual structure and layout of the house, but then you get to choose all of the flooring, walls, countertops, tiles, etc. It can be so much fun! It can also be stressful. Do you know what else can be stressful? Trying to decide which dog breed is right for you, and since you are looking to adopt and not shop, you really need to make sure you're bringing the right dog home. If you like sharp edges, clean lines and white textiles, a rambunctious dog who likes to jump on the furniture might not be the best idea.

Adopting a dog is a big decision. So is building a home. Both shouldn't be taken lightly and should be given an immense amount of thought. Both things can also be really expensive, so you want to do it right the first time to avoid extra and unnecessary costs. The upkeep of having a dog is what deters some people. With a house, once it's built, you have maintenance, taxes, insurance and a mortgage to pay. So why build a house any less than what you've been dreaming of? And why adopt a dog that you don't absolutely love? With this quiz, that worry will be a thing of the past. Build your dream home, and we'll tell you which dog to adopt!
